post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

So ACE Hardware extended their Black Friday sale on Masterbuilt Digital Smoker for $129 . I have been using a Stick Burner for 20+ years but have been thinking I should broaden my horizons . Will I be Happy playing with this ???

$129.00!  How could you go wrong?  It's a new toy to play with, and I'll bet it will crank out some great Q without the maintenance of a stick burner.

That's a good price and smoker, I recently bought one at field and stream for 159, you did good.

Which model is it? Can you post a picture? There are three generations with some better than others so in some cases it is worth a little more money to get a different generation.

I have had the 20070910 Generation 1 now for about a year & have had great results with it.

The ad does not say  which generation just 30" electric digital smoker !

The 30" Electric is listed in the ad at $149. It is an all black Gen 1 20071814, which may be an Ace only model. It should work well...JJ

 i would jump on it, it sounds like it might be very similar to the one that Lowe's has, very similar pricing (when on sale). I went to look at it at Lowe's on sale (both the 30 & 40) and by the end of the day I came home with the "40" SS forward controls, remote, glass in door and two additional shelves for  $289.00 plus 24.5 for the extra shelves. I thought that was a great deal. brought me into the electric age.....:biggrin: everyone is wheeling and dealing right now (use the magic phrase) will you match or beat? in my case they had 4 of them and the dust on the box was so thick you could write your name in it, they worked with me.....in hind sight I should have bought two LOL.

St Louis cut in MES 30----No big deal, but first thing is cut it in half.

 

Then here's some tips:

The St Louis ribs were a short Rack so that was not an issue . Went with a JD theme Jack Daniels Barrel Chips Then in the water Pan used 1/2 cup JD and 1 1/2 cups water .  I was surprised with how different the flavor was. On my Stick Burner I almost always use Cherry ,  Apple or Pecan . I never use a water pan and usually pan not wrap . So I started the Chuck at 10AM then added the ribs at 12 . Wrapped the Chuck at 1 and the ribs at 3 . Got busy hanging Christmas lights and did not get the ribs unwrapped and pulled everything at 5. Ribs were fall off the bone (not  preferred ) that was my fault and the Chuck was perfect. Really liked the ease of temp control and the fact you can open the door and regain temp fairly quick. I do a lot of large group multiple meat cooks and see myself using this quite a bit !

Bear I have your page saved and will be using it as my bible Thanks !
