    First time review for the Masterbuilt (Bluetooth) electronic Smoker (m/n: 20072415).  I purchased this particular unit while on sale at Home Depot’s Spring Sale event in February 2016…  That said, I have probably utilized the unit a dozen times over the course of Spring and Summer (to include today!).  Ok, the unit is rather straightforward to use and not all that difficult to manage and smoke food with….  Here comes the icky part.

    Customer service will answer the phone and actually care about your warranty claims and issues you are experiencing…  However; I have actually talked to one member of the customer service staff three times and was surprised I was helped and taken care of.  But, when I asked numerous times about the Bluetooth feature and the app that controls the unit let me just say you could hear a pin drop.  Same questions from customer service rep on each call, i.e. what iOS are you using and version, where is your phone (unit) located at during the hand-shake (Bluetooth sync) etc etc…  Each time the representative basically said “Well I’ll contact the Engineers and give them your input”, you should expect a phone call within in the week – Crickets!  Look I get the fact the unit isn’t all that special and I should expect what I pay for, seriously it’s cool if you just tell me “our Bluetooth element sucks and we apologize for your arse pain”.  I’m not that dude who demands a refund and a public lashing of the Company CEO, only thing I’m saying is – stop advertising functionality of your products it they don’t actually work or better yet – fix it with something that does work.

    Now to be fair, I have cruised a ton of blogs and trying to figure out if I was out of line and/or snot-bubbling about a feature that didn’t work on my unit.  Ummm, nope!  Apparently there are plenty of customers having the same issues without much luck in resolving the problem with the Bluetooth feature.  There are tons of cool features with this model and it works darn good (so far) and I am impressed with the food after it’s done.  If the unresponsive Bluetooth option is the only thing that doesn’t work then I’ll consider this a success so far and I’ll actually give the unit a B+ for overall ease of use and functionality. 

    For your consideration, I conditioned the unit on the inside and outside (first) before I ran it through its paces.  Outside I utilized some outdoor protective coatings to help repel any moisture from collecting and rusting any of the parts and placed it on bricks (get it off the floor), I store the unit indoors.  So trying to be a good consumer I read the instructions and ran an initial conditioning of the inside, this step went well and has functioned seamlessly (minus Bluetooth).  Again, I like this unit just fine, might try something else the next time around (not sure if I’ll do electric again or manual with wood), both require attention and time watching the temp and wood.

    So with that said, happy smoking and enjoy the outdoors b/c winter is on her way again and we all know how much fun that is… 

    Kind regards,

    Pros - Temperature control and timer work together to give even, predictable results.
    Cons - Little or no smoke at temps under 200 degs. Needs cold smoking accessory.
        I HAVE BEEN SMOKING WITH A BULLET SMOKER AND 18" GRILL FOR OVER SEVEN YEARS. I HAD NO TROUBLE SMOKING GREAT RIBS AND CHICKEN QUARTERS FROM DAY ONE ON THE MAST6ERBUILT.  THE ONLY ATTENTION NEEDED WAS TO ADD WOOD CHIPS EVERY 45 MINS OR SO. SETUP WAS QUICK AND EASY,CLEANUP WAS A SNAP, AND THE RESULTS OF THE SMOKING PROCESS WERE ALTOGETHER PREDICTABLE FOR ALL TEMPERATURES ABOVE 200 DEGS.

        I ATTEMPTED TO SMOKE A SALMON STEAK AT 145 DEGS WITH LITTLE SUCCESS. THE TEMP CAME UP AS EXPECTED BUT THERE WAS ONLY A LITTLE SMOKE DURING WARMUP. NO SMOKE COULD BE PRODUCED AFTER ACHIEVING OPERATING TEMP (145 DEGS). FURTHER RESEARCH INDICATED THAT A "COLD SMOKING" ACCESSORY MUST BE INSTALLED TO SMOKE AT LOW TEMPS SUCH AS IS NECESSARY FOR FISH AND CHEESE.

        I DID NOT SEE THIS AS A SHOW STOPPER AS FOR ALL OTHER MEATS THAT I WOULD BE SMOKING IT PERFORMED FLAWLESSLY.

    When I do salmon in my MES 30, I set the temp at 215 and go for about 2 hrs or so.  First sign of white coming out, its done.
     
    I use a salt/sugar/spice cure prior to smoking it.  Basically a cup of kosher salt, 2 cups of light brown sugar, some garlic powder, onion powder, dill weed, and lemon pepper.  I make a thin layer of the cure in a flat cake pan or cookie sheet, then the salmon skin down on that.  Cover with the rest of the cure and let it sit in the fridge for 4 hrs.  That will suck a lot of liquid out of the fish and make it ready to smoke.   I take the salmon out of the cure and rinse the salt off quickly with some cold water, and pat dry with a paper towel.  Then I hit it with another very very light sprinkling of lemon pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, dill weed, and a touch of cayenne.
     
    Then its about an1 1/2 to 2 hrs in the smoker at 215 with a water pan, then check it.  It should be 145 and done.
     
    Here's an early thread that shows pretty much what I do, though I tweaked the rub/cure with the onion/garlic now.

    THank you for taking your time to share.  I am a novice when it comes to smoking, I need all the help I can get even though I was a chef in the Navy for 25 years, smoking is all new to me.   I bought an electric Masterbuilt after doing a lot of reading on the net about smokers.  A smoker is like anything else you look up on the net, you will all ways find 100 people that have reasons it is no good.  I thought I should try it for my self and am SO glad I did !   The only thing I wish they would change is, build it so it cooked by TEMPERATURE and not time ! Temperature is the key.
    Also, we added a ROTISSERIE ! and think they should come that way

    I got one of these earlier this week. I'm getting up he middle of the night tonight to start a 13# brisket. My first smoke on it. Pre-seasoning it was easy and the next day I walked out on the back screened deck where it is and the smell from the hickory smelled good!! I can't wait! It seems to be a good unit, no smoke leak anywhere and it didn't blow a fuse using a short but heavy extension cord. A good smoker I think. The local butcher shop uses one and they like this model better than the newer one with the controls in the front. Good smoking to you!

    Just got mine for early Christmas yesterday on sale at Academy sports for $199, what a deal. Got two racks of ribs ready go in just a little while. I did order the stand from Amazon which seams to have the  best price $49.

    I'm sure you'll love it. I have what's called the generation 1 build, without the glass on the door. I love Masterbuilt smokers; can't beat them for the money.
