    Anyone use the masterbuilt 560??

    I keep my manifold and drip trays covered in foil and replace every so often. I also use drip trays for almost everything. Insides get scraped down with plastic putty knife. Thats the extent of it.

    Charcoal for my MB560

    I’ve done a bunch of smokes so far and I have only various B&B charcoal formats (Ace Hardware is only 5 min from our house and they’ve been having great sales). B&B lump definitely burns the quickest, but I feel it also produces the most smoke. I did my burn in (4 hours total of various temp...

    Masterbuilt Gravity Feed

    MB claims that the "fire block" (which is actually ceramic fiber pads), are kept in place by sacrificial metal that will burn out long before the pad ever will. They offer replacements for $29, although I'm not sure if that is a single panel or all four.

    Anyone use the masterbuilt 560??

    Well, my 1050 will be here tomorrow! I know there are some hiccups but nothing that was a show stopper. Cabela’s has it for $799 with 10% off using the cabelas card (available every Tuesday) and an extra $20 off as a card signing bonus. For $699 out the door (free shipping and no tax), I...

    Masterbuilt Gravity Feed

    I’m almost convinced to go with the GF smoker. What’s the ability to do overnight smokes? With my current electric smoker or any of the pellet grills that’s not an issue. What about with the charcoal smoker? I’m ok with adding charcoal in the morning, just want to make sure I can really get...

    Masterbuilt Gravity Feed

    From what I’ve read, you don’t get that “great” smoke flavor from a pooper, unless you supplement with a tube (which is what I do with the MES). I won’t need any searing capabilities from my smoker as I have a blaze grill with infrared sear burner built into our outdoor kitchen right next to...

    Masterbuilt Gravity Feed

    I need to go through all the comments. But, I’m upgrading from my MES40. Would you all recommend this gravity MES or a pellet smoker. I know that’s a broad question, but I have time to decide as I have no issues with my electric smoker. I just need to up my game.

    Buying meat online?

    Unfortunately, down in south jersey we have slim pickings for decent butchers. I’ve never used FB but I’ll have my wife see if anyone local is offering up packages. Thanks for the feedback!

    Buying meat online?

    Just looking for any recommendations for online purchasing of meat (racks of ribs, packers, busts, etc.)? Our local butcher is an hour away and our local Walmart, sams club and grocery stores are still a zoo and simply are not offering 10lb+ cuts for whatever reason. Any suggestions would be...

    Which pellet grill for the money?

    I guess my only concern is that I have a 40” built in gas grill with infrared searing burner, and plenty of other outside gadgets. I’d like to replace my 40” MES so I can graduate from an electric smoker to a pellet smoker. I think the most we’ve ever made at one time (in almost 10 years of...

    Which pellet grill for the money?

    Have you Camp Chef owners been happy with the grills? Im looking at the woodwind 24 or the SG 24 (which now has WiFi and the Gen2 PID). There’s $100 difference between the two and it seems like the only difference is the woodwind has the bottom shelf underneath the grill, the colored display...

    Recommendation needed - cost effective flavorful pellets

    I currently have a Gen 2.5 MES and and AMPNS and it has never disappointed. Now, I’m looking to up my game a bit. Have no fear, I just received my expandable pellet tube and that will give extra smoke for higher temp smokes. Having said that, you can start smokes at 180-190 degrees on a...
