New Masterbuilt Electric and new to the Forums!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 



New to the forums from Texas!  (DFW).  Love BBQ and Smoking but just starting to do my own.


I've smoked a few small trimmed briskets in my Weber Kettle with a Pitmaster Temp controller ( and it turned out REALLY well when I got the timing right.


I got this Masterbuilt Electric  30' as a gift this year and can't wait to try to use it but the directions are less than clear.



A few questions to you veterans:


1)  Is the temp display the smoker temp or the meat probe temp?  

2)  If it's both - how do you alternate between displaying the two temps?


On the remote it just displays a constant temp (whatever I programmed it to).  I I hold the meat probe button - it will display 3 different temps which I assume is Programmed Temp, Actual Temp and Meat Probe Temp.  Sound about right?


Also - how did you all season your smoker?  I am following the directions now (max temp for 3 hours - dry - then add wood chips) but I feel like I might need to do this a few times to really get the chemical smell to go away and get a good smoke smell.  




Thanks in advance!  I plan to get a brisket on there as soon as possible!  Need to find a good butcher!
