Picked up a 40" Masterbuilt Electric 2.5 Model today. 45 minutes from opening box to final assembly, a little surprised and pleased how every bolt and screw lined up perfectly. I just started the pre-season process and am watching it on my iPad (I hope the app has more features than appears). One thing I have noticed as it is heating up is the attached meat probe (attached to the right hand wall) is reading about 30 degrees higher than the smoker reading. I'll move it a couple of times during this process to monitor for hot spots. I'll be happy to answer any questions about the smoker but will not be throwing any meat at it until Sunday. I have also turned the manuals into PDF's if anyone has an interest.
