I'm assembling my new smoker ( masterbuilt 20050211) and I noticed someone else on this forum had the same problem. The front legs have 3 screws then the control panel screws into them. you have to leave all the screws loose and sort of finagle it around until they line up, but I always have 1 screw that gets stuck and I'm worried about it stripping if I force it in. I tried 5 different times and just got frustrated. I'm giving up for right now and will try again tomorrow, but does anyone have any suggestions or advice. I don't think I'm missing anything and I double checked the manual. I guess it's just a pain

Try starting screw from other side of hole to clean threads. However probably just a bit of paint. The two I have had one hole or two that was a bit rough. Just screwed them in without much fuss and all is well. Actually got easier as it went in and tightened up just fine.
Hope all goes well.
