Just another novice smoker here looking for tips and tricks. I've had a couple Brinkmann electric bullet smokers and a gas smoker, but decided that I wanted to get serious. I bought a new Masterbuilt 40" Smart Digital Electric Bluetooth Smoker with Legs. I've got a couple of pork shoulders and four pork butts ready to go into it today as soon as I finish seasoning it. I've also got a couple pork loins to try after the first round. After reading the forums I'm going to go with a 230°F cook temperature and judge the cook time by internal meat temperature. If you have any good advice it would be much appreciated.


I know that Masterbuilt currently makes some good electric smokers, but I couldn't find this model number (2007in any of the reviews that I'd read so far. Hopefully it's not a lemon as some I've read about. Just double checked the model number (20070215) and found that Sam's Club had misprinted the model number on their website and that was why I couldn't find it in any reviews... Just lovely. I hope I'm not left nursing the thing along just to have it completely fail after the warranty. I suppose in light of what I've learned the extended warranty might be the way to go after all.

Welcome from SC. Glad to have you. This is a great site. That's quite a load of meat for a first time cook on a new cooker. Just relax and don't get frustrated. Take one issue or meat decision at a time. Good luck with your cook. Let us know how it turns out. Joe

I'm hoping that what I lack in experience I can make up in knowledge, hence my lurking here in the forum. I do have enough general experience cooking that I don't rely on seat-of-the-pants first time out. This is definitely going to be a learning experience and I'm armed with backup thermometers just so I make a reasonable effort to avoid catastrophe. That being said, this is a load of meat that was almost to the "cook it or throw it away" stage that I bought for a steal, so whether it all works out or not, I'm getting the experience.

Thanks y'all! When I get the chance I'll post the full story on my first experience with my Bluetooth Digital MES. I'll try to get a few pictures to go along with the post.
