Masterbuilt Electric Smoker Pros and Cons

The Pros:

  • The Masterbuilt electric smoker is simple enough to run for a novice smoker, but has plenty of features for an experienced smoker as well.
  • Generous capacity. Has four racks that can be loaded up. If you’re cooking large birds, you may need to use only two racks for space. But still, the ability to smoke two birds at one time is nice.
  • Very well insulated. The box is pretty thick, so you won’t lose heat on cold days.
  • Affordable smoke. Because this unit primarily runs on electricity, you use a minimal amount of wood.
  • Fantastic customer support. While I didn’t need to contact them, there are many online reviews from people who have. Sounds like they are very, very good and responsive.

The Cons:

I wish the temperature could go a bit higher. 275 degrees is great for red meats, but 350 degrees would be nice for poultry. BUT as I say that, keep in mind that the name of the game for smoking is LOW & SLOW. Just give poultry a little extra time and you’ll be fine.

What Current Masterbuilt Electric Smoker Owners Think About It…

Five stars
Bob S. says… Masterbuilt customer service second to none. I would like to comment on the customer service I encountered when I had a problem with my unit. I use my MES often, and long smokes 12-14 hrs. are common. A couple of weeks ago I had a problem with my heating system. This smoker is almost 2 years old and well beyond warranty, my thinking was to contact Masterbuilt and see if they would give me a good price on the parts I need for the repair. Well as it turned out Masterbuilt is replacing my smoker with a new one. I recommend Masterbuilt without reservation. Review edited for size. Click here to read original review at

Alfred A. says… Great smoker. I’ve been looking at this smoker for awhile. I finally took the plunge and bought it. I’ve not been sorry. I made ribs, roast and chicken and all turned out great! It’s simple to use and works great. The only problem i’ve had is finding the chips. Planning to try smoking a turkey for Thanksgiving. Review edited for size. Click here to read original review at
