Yeah Tim I noticed that too but I just got a bit worried about whether you'd be safe with this company is all - do be careful just in case okay? It does look nice.

That looks just like my MasterBuilt. You'll be thrilled with being able to set your temps right where you want them. If you find it is very similar to the MB check out Illini's post about how many chips to use and mod's ..... he is the resident MB guru. Great B-day present, now you owe her a great present for her next birthday/holiday!! Thats just how it works.........

I went back and looked at the web site ........ That thing looks too much like a Masterbuilt. I'd bet Masterbuilt sells/licenses to Centro and allows them to use the Centro name. I bet you'll be very satisfied.

Happy Birthday T-Bone


Can see that the name plate on the door says centro but it is a MES at heart!

Be sure to cure it before that first smoke....heat it up to 225* or so and after an hour add some chips for a couple of hours and she should be ready to go....just put in 3 or 4 chips about every 30 minutes...don't overdo it or you will run the risk of creosote inside....I use marshmallow size chunks and that works good too....just enough at one time to be able to see a little blue smoke coming out the top vent....I do not wet the wood at all....

Have fun and good luck!

I'm looking to buy the same one, let us know how it goes. Seems like it'd be real handy when smoking a lot of stuff.
