Have an Electric Smoker, wanted to try the Propane. The double doors are a nice feature, temperature a little harder to control than the Electric, you may have to check it a little more but it works well and puts out some great food. I also got a probe to keep a better eye on the meat temp. Smoker is built well for the price, great model to get into smoking.

The materbuild two door propane smoker is easy to assembly and works great. The two doors make it easy to smoke in one chamber while opening the bottom to add water and chips without letting the smoke out. I've smoked ribs a couple times and they come out falling off the bone. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bearcop Tough to control temperature
Yesterday, Super Bowl day, I cooked my first batch on my Masterbuilt 2 door propane smoker. Ribs and pheasants. I had read other reviews which complained about the bowl which holds the wood and found those complaints were true. The bowl has holes thru it which allows the wood chunks to catch fire--and then you can't control the temperature. I wanted 225 degs--and constantly had to adjust the controls AND take out wood chunks when they caught fire. This should be fixed by MASTERBUILT--it is a design flaw. The 2 doors is a MUST. Ribs were GRRREAT but took constant adjustment until the wood chunks were gone.

I love my new smoker, I smoked a brisket last weekend and I'm going to smoke 3 more briskets this weekend., I've got a couple of friends that want to get themselves one like it.

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.
