Masterbuilt Electric Smoker Review

One of the Best Units for Cold Smoking

I discovered the Masterbuilt Electric Smoker model number 20070411 while looking for something I could use for cold smoking. The temperature range on this thing is perfect for my electric smoker recipes. It’s not the perfect machine but it performs as advertised. Check out the details of my smoker review below:

Reasons Why I’m Totally Grateful to have this Smoker

  • ASSEMBLY: This smoker is easy to assemble. Unpacking the package was not a huge problem. All the necessary parts are included in the package. It also came with instructions and it wasn’t hard to understand. Overall, I can say that this Masterbuilt unit is well packaged. You can say that I had a pretty good out of the box experience.
  • SMOKING PERFORMANCE: This unit provides consumers with all the benefits of an electric smoker. I tried smoking different kinds of meat on this thing and they all came out smelling so good enough to make me salivate. It provides better temperature control. However, do take note that given its temperature range, it is best suited for cold smoking. If you want to reach the higher or optimal smoking temperatures then use a propane/gas or charcoal smoker. The remote control is also an added convenience. I don’t think the viewing window is of any use to me though.
  • CLEAN UP: This is also another plus coming from electric smokers no matter what brand they may be. They are relatively easier to clean. Oh, there are times when the insides get dirtier but it’s nowhere as messy as my charcoal smoker. Well, there aren’t a lot of parts for you to clean. It’s just the window, all four racks, and the two pans (i.e. drip pan and the as well as the water pan)

I won’t be that willing to call this the best electric smoker. But I think you can call it as one of the best in its price range. However, I do like to point you to a couple of downsides that you should know about before buying the Masterbuilt model number 20070411.

Watch out for the on/off button on the remote. It turns the remote off, true, but it also turns the smoker off as well. You may end up turning off your smoker by accident.

Another downside is that you need to tilt the entire unit so that all the grease drains into the grease pan. That’s a little bit of inconvenience during clean up. Well, it’s just a small bit of exercise for me so I don’t really mind it.

All in all, this Masterbuilt Electric Smoker gave me good value for my money. I use it for cold smoking and the food comes out great.
