Interested in getting a new 40” Masterbuilt Smoker/ Bluetooth. At the same time would like to get something for the smoker to sit on to raise it, so I was thinking of getting the 40" Masterbuilt 20101213 Electric Digital Smoker Stand or the Masterbuilt 20101114 Universal Electric Smoker Leg Extension Kit.

I read a few reviews for both of the stands and a few stated that they didn’t fit properly. So I decided to call Masterbuilt and spoke with a CSR by the name of Keith, told him I was considering the 40" Masterbuilt Smoker/ Bluetooth  and he stated either one of those stand/leg kits would work with the 40” models with no problem.

I then went to the Masterbuilt site and looked at the specs they have for both stands. Well, according to the following from the Masterbuilt site:

Model Number 20101213 Electric Digital Smoker Stand Specifications

Weight 16.8 lbs.

Length 17.7 inches

Width 23.8 inches

Height 15.8 inches

Fits all 40-inch Masterbuilt digital electric smokers (except for Bluetooth)  

Model Number 20101114 Universal Electric Smoker Leg Extension Kit Specifications

30" and 40" Length - 22.2 and 27.4 inches

Weight - 9.7 pounds

Width - 21.5 inches

Height - 9.8 inches

Fits all Masterbuilt Digital Electric Smokers

So I called Masterbuilt again and spoke this time to a CSR by the name of Carmen and told her I what I was told last time I called Masterbuilt and what I had read on spec from their website, according to Carmen, NO Bluetooth version will work on their smoker stand Number 20101213. She didn’t know why, I asked that also. She said only the leg kit will work.

Does anybody out there with a 40-inch Masterbuilt that has Bluetooth use the 40" Masterbuilt 20101213 Electric Digital Smoker Stand?

Does it fit properly?

Or why doesn’t it fit?
 
If you don't get some help with this, you could get a utility cart or  maybe you should consider another brand of cart. Smokin-it has some stainless steel carts and stands; you might be able to adapt one of them to your smoker.  Here is the link and good luck:
