Replaced Masterbuilt 40 w/ RecTec Mini

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have a large Napoleon Prestige Pro for my gasser, but had used a Masterbuilt 40" Gen 2 for the past few years.  I've never had consistent smoke out of the Masterbuilt even with AMNPS.  I replaced it with a RecTec Mini...

 

SMOKE problems solved and temperature, as measured by an iGrill2, was absolutely perfect.  AMAZING ribs and brisket.

Looks good, but tell us about your new smoker!

The Rec-Tec Mini is a smaller version of the fullsize Rec-Tec.  Perfect temp control- set it and forget it... I'd struggled so much with the MB that I came down to a Smokin-IT or the Rec-Tec...

 

So far, I love it.

I've used it for 3 weeks now. Rock solid never varies more than 2 degrees up or down, even over 19 hour smokes.
