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):

    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!

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

          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.

              GREAT SMOKER

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

              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 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.
