I love this smoker, you can set your temp. and forget it. I would set it up in on Sunday morning and go to Church come home add some more wood chips and late afternoon the ribs are perfectly smoked. I used it for pork butts, brats and chicken. I just wish it was a littel bigger so I could smoke more meet. You can buy the 40 inch but there is a significant price difference. The racks usually need to be soaked a little before cleaning, I would also recommend putting some foil on the drip pans and water tray makes clean up earier.

I purchased in December 2015 as an alternate to my gas smoker as the gas smoker cannot hold temperature in New England fall/winters.
Used this electric smoker twice without issue and excellent results.
I Just went to use it as we have guests coming over and the the digital control chirps and shuts off! I Investigated the issue online and it sounds like Masterbuilt will not assist if it was stored outside! Unfortunaely, I made the mistake of storing outside even though it was covered.
Stored outside? where else would you store a smoker?

This is the second Masterbuit outdoor cooking product I have owned. The other was a gas grill that lasted three years.

Personally I will find it very unlikely to consider any Masterbuilt products in the future

Comments about Masterbuilt 30in Digital Electric Smoker (20071814):

After 2 years of fighting with my control, it gave up the ghost. Like many of the other reviews, the control would beep rapidly and the light flashed when the unit was powered up. After repeated power ups it could be made to work. You would need to keep an eye on it because it could just shut off during your cook time. When it works, it makes fantastic smoked food. I bought 2 for my son-in-laws. Theirs work great and they love them. I did recommend one to be purchased as a Christmas gift. It was dead on arrival. Not sure what the status is of that unit. I am waiting to hear back from Masterbuilt on my control. I did read that others had their controls replace at no charge. I hope I am that lucky.

    Great product, easy to set up and use. Meats come out perfectly cooked with just the right amount of smoke flavor. I added the legs with wheels option to make it easier to move from storage to use. The smoker came with several other accessories (cover, rib rack, sausage rack, meat probe) all of which are helpful. I am very impressed with this product after several uses.

          After years of trying to use my small green egg. I gave up on it. My son bought a master built smoker and used it at a family vacation weekend at the river. After watching how easy and how great his BBQ Butts tasted I was sold. Have had mine for 3 months and love it. Still learning correct times on different meats but it is so easy to use. As far as lasting don't have a clue . I do know that 12 hours at 225 for two 8 lb Pork Butts are perfect .

            System wouldn't allow 0 stars! - A waste of money. Product barely lasted 2 years. Quit working, called them, they said I needed a new control unit so I paid $40.52. Didn't fix the problem. Called them again, they said I needed a heating element. Got one of those and didn't fix the problem. Called again, they said those are the only 2 serviceable parts they had. I had to return parts for credit and pay the shipping. Did that. When I received the credit they shorted me. Called again, they said they do not refund shipping costs even though THEY told me I needed the parts. I ended up paying shipping BOTH WAYS for parts I did not need and couldn't get the smoker to work.

              I've only owned the smoker for a couple of weeks and used it twice, but so far it's performed beautifully! I've smoked some ribs which came out super tasty in addition to fish which was great. The smoker is well made and has all of the features that you need. The door is solid and seals well. I've only used it in warm weather but the insulation looks like it will hold the heat in the colder weather as well. It's basically a small "dorm" fridge converted into a smoker, and I mean that in a positive sense.

              I see a number of negative reviews from mid-2016 pointing to a faulty controller. That concerns me a bit but I am hoping that over the past year Masterbuilt has fixed those problems and I am keeping my fingers crossed that my unit has an updated controller.

                  I bought this smoker to use for Christmas gathering and the controller just clicked after a short time of use. No good. Contacted Masterbuilt and they sent me a new one. Same problem. Contacted Masterbuilt again and this time they made good...much better than I expected. After being instructed to cut the cord and pry off the number plate and send them photos of same, they sent me an upgraded unit. It works perfectly. Thank you Masterbuilt!

                    this thing is such a piece of junk. I cannot begin to tell you everything that breaks on this--the latest is the heating element, after using it maybe 20 times over the past 2 years. Door cracked after a couple of months. Water leaks in from lord knows where, leaving puddles inside despite us paying for a cover for it! (i.e. cover leaks too--another waste of money!). The wood insert tube jams and doesn't work. The vent sticks and eventually cooks shut and the flimsy handle broke off. Had to pay for new door, still it leaks. Had to pay for new heating element--we have disassembled much of the smoker and cannot replace the thing b/c the screws for the wood holder tray are basically cooked on.
                    So now I have a useless box, a complete piece of garbage. Oh and good luck talking to customer service. You'll spend hours on hold, the recording will tell you that if you press * they'll call you back when your call queue comes up, but they never do (I called 1st thing this morning and 7 hours later no call. Just spent 50 minutes on hold, tried to press * and it wouldn't even give me the prompt to leave a message.
                    Oh while on hold they will tell you about what a great Faith-Based, Family-based company they are.
                    Well, if their christian family values means they make a lousy product they don't stand behind and charge top dollar for it, well, shame on them.
                    PS google and you'll find many people who have had lousy problems with this thing.
                    do not waste your money.

                      Friday evening drove to 3 different Ace hardware stores to find one & put it together in Saturday morning and it wont even power up. Did not take it back to the store because i knew they were all sold out. Called the 800 number and no customer service on the weekend. Called monday morning and did not hear anything back for 3 days only find out its an "internal problem" and to take it back to the store. The best part is waiting on hold hearing about how they pride their-selves in their quality products.

                      The electronic controller failed immediately. Started OK, but then turned off and clicked when I pushed the On/Off button. Called Masterbuilt who sent a replacement. That one worked one time, now does the same thing as the first one.

                      If they don't replace it with one that works, this unit goes back to ACE.

                        I bought this smoker as a Christmas gift to myself. I've had electric smokers before and this one is the best, hands down.
                        I've smoked fish, pork butts, pork loins, chicken leg quarters, beef & pork ribs.
                        Simple and easy to use, clean up is a snap. I suggest soaking the grills for easy cleanup.
                        Hint, when preheating, add your wood chips about 10 minutes before adding your meat. This allows the chips to start smoking a bit quicker. After adding your meat, wait another 10 minutes then go to desired heat setting.
                        I store it INSIDE my garage. I always keep it out of the wind, when smoking.

                            Went out this morning and fired up the smoker to smoke a pork loin. The control panel just clicks when pushing the button to turn it on or it turns on and shuts off a few minutes after starting. I have already exchanged this smoker once at a local ACE. I am not pleased, now I have an 8 pound pork loin that I planned to smoke that I will have to find another way to cook. Stay away from this smoker, it will work fine for a few smokes but then fry. I would understand if the first one was a manufacture defect but the same thing happened to the second one. Keep in mind also, I keep the smoker out of the rain and covered when stored, and only smoke most of my meat at 225-235 degrees which is no where near the max 275 that this smoker manufacture says. Love ACE, dislike this smoker company. I will be spending my money on another brand. Masterbuilt is Masterjunk.

                              I purchased in December 2015 as an alternate to my gas smoker as the gas smoker cannot hold temperature in New England fall/winters.
                              Used this electric smoker twice without issue and excellent results.
                              I Just went to use it as we have guests coming over and the the digital control chirps and shuts off! I Investigated the issue online and it sounds like Masterbuilt will not assist if it was stored outside! Unfortunaely, I made the mistake of storing outside even though it was covered.
                              Stored outside? where else would you store a smoker?

                              This is the second Masterbuit outdoor cooking product I have owned. The other was a gas grill that lasted three years.

                              Personally I will find it very unlikely to consider any Masterbuilt products in the future

                              I received this smoker as a Christmas gift and used it with great success several times. We smoked shrimp, perch, flounder, a sirloin roast, venison roasts, venison jerky and a Boston butt and it all came out great. This is my first time smoking which shows how easy this smoker is to operate. However, on about 3 or 4 occasions the smoker would shut off and would not come back on, usually when pressing the button for the meat probe. I was able to get the smoker working again by using a hair dryer to either warm up or dry out the control panel. I contacted Masterbuilt support via email and received a reply within 10 minutes. After sending them a picture of the receipt, serial/model number and after verifying the warranty, a picture of the power cord having been cut, they sent out a new unit. I have to say the customer service was WAY above what passes for normal these days. The new unit has since worked flawlessly. Time will tell if it holds up well.

                              I love this smoker, you can set your temp. and forget it. I would set it up in on Sunday morning and go to Church come home add some more wood chips and late afternoon the ribs are perfectly smoked. I used it for pork butts, brats and chicken. I just wish it was a littel bigger so I could smoke more meet. You can buy the 40 inch but there is a significant price difference. The racks usually need to be soaked a little before cleaning, I would also recommend putting some foil on the drip pans and water tray makes clean up earier.
