Masterbuilt vs Master-Forge

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

are they the same?  I am new and tried to research it a little, but wasn't able to find anything on this.  Looking at purchasing my first smoker, and I feel that an electric smoker would be the way to go.

I been searching for a smoker also and been trying to search for reviews. I search the forum and found this thread:

I think that thread helps a bit deciding.

Saw that too... think I have ruled out the Master Forge. Think I will go with the Masterbuilt.

Which model?

I think I might go with the 30 inch electric one since that seems to be the more popular one.

Have you folks looked at the Cookshack, the SmokinTex or the Smokin-it electric smokers?  They are all solid machines.  I listed them in order of high price to low.

Masterforge 30 inch digital with top front controls and and solid door without glass definitely is a masterbuilt 2nd generation MES 30 that people are talking about on this site .I know that because I have one and on the back of the smoker is the Masterbuilt ID plate .

thanks... do you like it?  Does it do a good job getting up to heat and holding it?  I live in Northern MA and want something that will allow me to make my smoking season longer.  Any issues with it?  Thanks in advance.

I have the MasterForge rebranded MES Gen 2. So far it works great. I have not used it in the frozen weather yet though.

its only freezing outside and my masterbuilt no window box at 225 seldom has heat on light going. I have been waiting for this brisket to get past 195 for an 2 hour now. turned the thermo to 275 half hour ago heating came on and off  - still no rise. Inside now.
