easy to assemble, maintains consistent heat temps (7 uses thus far), and relatively easy to clean. I must give 1 warning though, choosing the meat/poultry/fish to smoke can be relatively difficult.
Would recommend for newb's to smoking.

This was a Christmas present that I couldn't wait until Christmas to open and use. Smoked a 4 lb boston butt, 2 racks of ribs and 3 lbs of King fish for a smoked fish dip. All turned out perfectly. On the lowest setting, the temp held steady around 200 degrees. I went through wood chips a little faster that I hoped, but next time I'll use wood chunks. I would recommend getting some leather gloves to replace the wood chips in pan so you can pull hot pan out to add chips to it.

This would be the first smoker I owned. I was very pleased with the quailty for the price. I smoked salmon, Pheasant, beef roast, pork roast and some baked beans all at the same time and it turned out perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SmokinMad Defective welds
The access doors hinges are welded to the doors. The welds on the unit I received were defective for the food compartment door. I was instructed to send the unit back, but the box was pretty much destroyed during unpackaging and I really wanted to use the smoker for our Thanksgiving turkey, so I found a local welder and had to pay money out of pocket to make the product functional. Bad experience!

I've read that most smokers take 1.5-2 hours for pork and beef cuts. I've smoked 2 beef briskets and 10 pork shoulders and each take 3+ hours per pound.

Per the Owner’s Manual for Pork at 225°F (107°C) will take about 3+ hours in a preheated smoker. See Chart for Brisket 3-4 lbs 200°F takes about 3-4.5 hours cooking time. http://masterbuilt.com/pdf/manuals/... Thanks
Yes, the orifice will have to be drilled out for natural gas up to the 15,400 BTU level. Natural gas is lower pressure so drilling it will allow more gas. Any licensed gas contractor should be able to help you with this easily.
The difference of liquid propane (LP) versus natural gas basically comes down to two things, the size of the jet orifice, and the pressure regulation. While I don’t know for sure, I doubt that the jet can be changed, and the regulator would probably not be correct either. Bottom line, can it be changed? Almost anything can if you are willing to spare the time, effort and cost. Is it worth it? Probably not, you can buy a 100 lb. LP cylinder that will last you lifetime.
