Im seriously confused with all of the different versions of Masterbuilt smokers. In addition to the smokers, I'm noticing that certain stores are selling their versions of what appears to be, the same smoker.
I smoke primarily for me and my girl; therefore, I don't think that I need to go as large as 40 inches. Seems that the 30 inch is perfectly fine for my needs.
According to the Masterbuilt website, there are 2, 30 inch smokers, (i) the Analog smoker that doesn't have the digital display on the top and (ii) the Digital smoker with a window and one that has a digital display on the top.
Now, I've also seen on youtube a black Masterbuilt smoker with a digital display on the top.
WHICH IS THE MOST RECENT AND ACCURATE MODEL? What is the model number for the most recent black model? My concern is, the version with the glass door is not necessary because, while smoking, you can't see inside the box.
All I'm looking for, is a reliable 30 inch electric smoker with the digital display on the top. If the black version is not the latest, I'll go with the one with the glass door. But from what I can tell, the 30 inch glass door version averages about $289. That's alot of $$$ for a smoker with the reputation of dying out in about a year.
Sorry about dropping so much information, I hope ya'll can help me.
