Rated 4 out of 5 by MountainCuts Awesome little unit
Debated for quite some time and finally pulled the trigger on this. Still learning but so far have smoked up a couple of batches of trout, a couple of grouse, some bacon wrapped rabbits, and a rack of ribs over the past couple of weekends. Super easy to use and cleans up very nicely afterwards. Overall I'm very pleased! No issues with shipping or receiving in good shape.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Flaylor Food Tastes Great
I have used this smoker now for about two months. It works well for the money spent. My biggest complaint is temperature fluctuation. I have a wireless thermometer - one prob monitoring the smoker and a second prob for the meat. Temperature reading on smoker does not match thermometer - smoker temp lower than its display readout, so you think its smoking at 250 and its real temperature is 210. I'm guessing the heating element is too small. It takes a few hours to get the smoker to stay a constant 225. If you open unit to baste or remove an appetizer, then it takes even longer to gain and stay at 225. Once the unit has been on for a couple of hours and the meat is hot, it stays near 225, fluctuating between 215 to 245. But the food tastes great and I recommend the process. I would recommend the same brand, but with a propane/gas burner and not electric.

I bought this 2/21/2014 for my brother's birthday. He's been using a 30 year old Lil Chief Top Loader electric smoker for always doing his smoked salmon. Same weekend he got we smoked lots of salmon
Filets, due to the much roomier space accommodations to the new smoker. What took him 12 hours to do in the old non insulated smoker, now only takes 4 hours. This new MasterBuilt smoker comes already insulated. And my brother loves the digital controls, which you preset the temperature and timeframe. Walk away and let the smoker do it's job. Since our first time smoking salmon with this new smoker, he had used it three more times, and it's only been 3 weeks since he first got it. My brother wants to now do a smoked turkey.
Going to buy one for myself.

As a novice smoker, I have a little experience curing, none at smokin'. I would recommend this package. Ordered a Cold Smoker attachment this week.
First smokin' experience was good. Pork loin, hickory, ok. 2nd, chicken, apple, not so good. U can go from there... I have read so many comments on forums, my head is spinning.... I been "hog" huntin' this week, so I guess my experience has been satisfying .... more to come MTC.
