    "First Impressions at Unboxing and Assembly Only"
    Purchase Date:
    Jan 24, 2015
    Purchase Price:
    Pros - Unit intact with no shipping damage, good fit and finish, easy assembly of parts.
    Cons - Wheels would be nice.
    I have not seasoned this unit yet so this review is only my first impressions at unboxing and assembly. I found this unit on Craiglist for $100 and it was new and still packed in the box, so for $100 I gave it a high mark for value. The box had a small hole in one side (about 1") but there was no apparent damage to the smoker body at all. Unboxing was tedious due to everything being wrapped and secured with MANY cable ties which prohibited damage so I'm not complaining. All parts assembled with relative ease and all hardware was present and accounted for in the packaging. All parts that were mounted permanently with screws aligned up with mounting holes without having to insert the screws at wild angles to get them started. This unit is gen 2 so I will follow up with another review once I've had opportunity to season then cook with it. I also plan on purchasing the Masterbuilt Cold Smoke Generator and will review it once I've used it as well. I suppose my greatest concern is how the electronics are going to hold up once in use, I base this concern on research done prior to my purchase. I've read good things about Masterbuilt's Customer Service but I hope not to have to include that in any future reviews.

    I have had this unit (or one that looks very much like it) for the past 3+years.  initially, I noticed the vent wouldn't close called masterbuilt, they replace it via courier . After the 1st year the heating element went, called masterbuilt they sent a new one without any arguing ( they are very helpful people). that was one or 2 years back. hopefully will not have any need to contact them for parts again for many years to come.  BTW., it works great I have smoked several hundred different cuts on it  only need to get a cold generator for it. (tis is my 2nd smoker the "little chief" was my 1st)

    I have the top rear mounted controller, but it sure seems like it would be the same electronics.  I don't keep count of how often I've used it, but since I got it last Christmas, probably twice a month on average, so around 20 times sounds right.  No issues with the controller.  Have you contacted Masterbuilt about warranty service? 
    By the way, this was to replace the "analog" controller version, 30" MES I had, and probably used 50 times.  If you're not really fussy about adjusting the controller to keep the temperature centered, the analog version has the advantage of smoking longer on a load of chips.

    I'm sorry to hear you had troubles with your  MES.  So far (4-5 smokes) Mine has worked very well does everything I want. Mine is digital and keeps temp pretty close to setting. Perfect no, but pretty close. Of course I can always up the temp setting but really, It's electric so there will naturally be a lag time discrepancy. But over over a several hour smoke I don't see that as any real problem. I used a Weber Grill for years and every 40 minutes required opening the lid to add charcoal and wood and lost all the heat. But still made great smoked Que.  Just my 2¢

    I love the set it and forget it cooking.  I can watch the IT and not be chained to the smoker/grill. Some days I can't hang out by the smoker for hours. I've set the smoker up and left the house  for hours without a worry.  Highly recommended if you want the easiest possible smoked BBQ.

    I have the same exact one. Only because I have no place to put a large wood smoker on my patio in my apartments. My dad gives me grief over it because he taught me to smoke meats the traditional way. However, I'm pleased with my investment. Great post!
