Masterbuilt 40" electric smoker control panel replacement


Joined Nov 21, 2020
I have a Masterbuilt 40" electric smoker (model# 20072612). I restored it from father in laws backyard. I gave it some attention (replaced the element and a few cosmetics) and was able to smoke a rack of ribs on it. After that, the control panel quit working. It was missing the button covers already (see pics). I have tried to find a replacement for the control panel and have struck out all together. Not sure if masterbuilt is just not making it anymore amd if that means this smoker i have is obselete. Im really hoping not. Do any of you smoking veterams have Amy suggestions or advice? Im willing to pay for one if I can find one. Would like to get back to smoking some stuff soon.

Sounds like a great time to switch to a pid, check out tallbm's post on them
What he said. $150 or so for an Auber PID controller and a simple rewiring job and you will have a smoker better than the original ever was.

Exactly. I switched last year and haven't looked back. Made it into an entirely better smoker. Upped my smoking game tremendously.
