Char-Broil Deluxe Digital Electric Smoker

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well look what showed up on my door today. I know this forum is very heavily MES but I really like the features of this. I'll post a proper review once I get to use it.



Everything arrived in 100% working order no dents or extra screws and the sticker came off the window easily.



Seasoned it properly and now it's ready to go!

I am very impressed with it so far. I smoked up some large mouth bass to break it in.


Yes that's a turkey platter, the filets were huge!

Brined it in salt sugar and water for 6 hours and let them sit out on rack for an hour while the smoker pre heated and smoked them at 200 for 1.5 hours on cherry wood. No added spice and they were out of this world!



Doing my first butt on Friday I can't wait!

Any updates here? I'm new to smoking and have the chance to pick this smoker up for free. I've read mixed reviews on amazon. Hows it holding up?

If it's free get it. You're not out anything except some time if it sucks.

Sorry for the lack of updates, yes I did a butt last Friday and it turned out so good. Sorry I don't have pics but the smoker is working great.

I picked mine up at Sam's club for $215 with free shipping. If you can get it for free I would jump on it.

If you have any specific questions let me know.!

I finally got my pictures from my damaged phone of my pork butt.



It was my first and I decided to go full out Jack Daniels. Used the JD mustard for the binder and JD pork rub topped with some brown sugar.




Wrapped it and let it sit overnight.



Used Jack Daniels wood chips mixed with some cherry. Put it in 5am @220 and it took it out at 2pm.





It turned out amazing! The bone slid right out and the PP just melted in my mouth.



Froze the leftovers and reheated in the oven and it turned out just as good.

Im getting the step down from the smoker you have ( Char Broil Digital Electric Smoker)

 

I have read some reviews on them and a lot of people are saying to use the wood box without the cover. have you found this out to be that case?

I know what you are saying and I did try it and the chips caught fire so beware of that if you try it. I've never had an issue with the wood chip box though, it will smoke for a good 6 hours or more which is way more than you will need for most smokes.

 

Hope you like yours as much as I do!

One thing I like about that Char-Broil smoker is that it cooks the meat to the desired temp and then the smoker goes into warming mode!  I don't think Masterbuilt has that feature, you set a temp you want it to run at and then a timer for how many hours, which makes no sense to me.  If I would have known that I think I may have gone with the Char-broil as well!  One thing I like better on the Masterbuilt though is the optional cold smoking unit you can hookup up to it, but it seems more people go with the A-MAZE-N Maze tray for the smoke. Also get a 1 year warranty with the Char-Broil vs 90 days with Masterbuilt.
