So, i got a MasterBuilt 20050611 model as a gift this week. Not even sure where they purchased it yet. The "instruction" manual is great for the safety features and assembly instructions. It has some recommendations about roasting times, and some nice recipes.
What the manual is lousy at is giving instructions on how to operate the smoker. There is barely anything there to show you how to light it. There is NOTHING there about where to place the chips, the water, or the meat (should it be top, bottom, middle racks if alone? What if there are multiple types of meats? Where do the drippings go?) Anyway, I'm just venting about the quality of the manual.
The good news is I am learning a lot here at this site....thank you to everyone.
Here is what I am confused about though. My model is the 20050611. If I google that - I find very little information about that model, almost like it doesn't exist? I see lots of info about the 20050106 - and the pictures of that model look just like the one in my garage now.
Anyone have any ideas what is up with this?
