Glass Leaked Grease and is a Poor Insulator
3 Star Review   By joe4878 on Home Depot - Jun 13, 2013   

I would not recommend this smoker because the window is pointless it clouds up the first 5 min of smoking and after you smoke two times the smoke on the window is so heavy you can't wipe it clean. If you plan to smoke in the winter it will be harder to maintain the temperature because the glass releases a lot of heat. Also the window that I had just leaked grease even after smoking multiple times. I bought this smoker on 6/2/13 when i unpacked the smoker it was missing the screws and two pans. I called up Masterbuilt and they said I was missing the hardware kit so they sent me the kit which I received on 6/7/13. When I assembled the smoker I noticed there was a bracket missing screws so I called up again and sent them photos. This time they waited till the 13th and said just exchange it where you bought it. I would of hoped they would just mail me a new smoker and pickup the bad smoker since I had to wait so long for their responses and I don't have a truck to hull back and forth. If you look at the picture you can see how dark the window is and this is after I scrubbed it for 20 min you can also see all of the grease the window leaked out this did not leak from the bottom at all.

Grest ribs and pulled pork the first time.
5 Star Review   By Harold on Home Depot - Jun 13, 2013   

Easy to assemble. Holds heat spot on all night, although the outside temp. dropped into the 40's. Good smoke flavor. Would like the portable controller to be good for more than a 100ft. Would buy this unit again.

5 Star Review   By smokerking on Home Depot - May 29, 2013   

For entry level smoking, even for condos since it is electric, I use mine every weekend! I have cooked Boston butts, ribs, chicken, etc. The 14 hour slow smokes required for a decent sized butt, this thing is so easy! Love the remote control so I can check meet temp from inside. Read some on the internet about 3-2-1 method of ribs, it is absolutely fantastic. Use a good rub on your pork, let it sit for overnight, had better results with butts right from the fridge, but i try and let the ribs get up to room temp for 1/2 hour first. You won't regret buying this grill, get a cover! Electronics are not water proof!

The remote control makes it so you can tell from in the house what is happening outside.
5 Star Review   By Dan5 on Home Depot - May 27, 2013   

This product is so easy to use and the flavor of the food that comes out makes you close your eyes and say MMMMMMMMM. We have used it 3 or 4 times already and have only had it for a month. Everything we have smoked in it was awesome from Brisket,Ham,Chicken,Pork Chops Sausage, and more all of it is so awesome. Apple wood, and hickory are the only two types of wood we have used but they were both awesome. We are going to experiment with Cherry, mesquite, and pecan. Each one has a definite flavor. All so easy..Good cooking to ya'll. Dan and Deb

Great when it works...which isn't for long
1 Star Review   By Shibby on Home Depot - Apr 28, 2013   

Used it one summer. Heating element failed. Sent a cut chord and plate in...recieved another heating element. Worked great for 2 months. Stored it in garage. Got it out in April. Control unit doesn't work. Really like this when it works.......but I give up. I am writing this to save someone else the frustration. The company people are real nice....product is just not reliable.

Unit is DOA, burner doesnt work, hardware for attaching wheels is done VERY poorly
1 Star Review   By Jerry on Home Depot - Apr 27, 2013   

I should have known it was doomed when right out of the box the one of the threaded inserts you use to bolt the wheels on had fallen inside the body (used a magnet to hold it in place and made it work) and the other insert didnt line up with the hole in the bottom panel but I put it together anyway. The unit wouldnt heat up after 30 minutes so I plugged it directly into the wall instead of the extension chord and the burner still will not come on

So very easy to use
5 Star Review   By Vince on Home Depot - Apr 12, 2013   

I used my smoker for first time yesterday, 2 slabs of spare ribs and one whole chicken. I am not your best person on a grill so I decided to try a smoker. I cant even tell you how easy it was and how good these ribs were for the first time I have ever smoked. 4 hours or so of wet smoking and they were so tender and tasty. Kids really loved them and every thing was gone ! I will have to work on my chicken though it was not as good as the ribs. But from what I have read alot of smoking is trial and error. Simple rub then last hour in foil with sauce. The glass door really is not needed. The remote is a great feature. Directions were not the best but can be figured out. Easy to set up. and get going. Would easily hold 4 slabs but need to cut in half fit best on racks. Clean up was ok. A hot damp rag with Dawn and a good wipe down. Temp held very well and it produced alot of smoke. It was raining out so I did in my garage with the door open. One of the advantages of electric. Consider this smoker when looking to buy.

5 Star Review   By Papadoo111 on Home Depot - Apr 11, 2013   

This smoker is great for all meat. The set and go features are great. I read some reviews about cleaning the smoker what is best if you would spray the smoker with some pam or cooking spray and you will see better cleaning results

A great buy
5 Star Review   By bubba931 on Home Depot - Apr 2, 2013   

Delivery was fast and the unit was very easy to assemble. I pre-seasoned it as the manual states and it got up to temperature in no time at all, considering it was 35 degrees outside. I have since made a pork butt and ribs and both were exceptional. The smoker works great and the outside never got hot to the touch, so it's very well insulated. I set an oven thermometer in the smoker and the temp stayed right on the money. Very good unit for the money. Make sure to clean up the walls and glass while it is still warm or you will have a black mess on your hands.

4 Star Review   By Daniel on Home Depot - Apr 2, 2013

Love the remote and view window. Excelent product
5 Star Review   By babybackbob on Home Depot - Mar 5, 2013   

I have used this smoker for baby backs,Tri Tip, Brisket, and chicken.Can't wait to try fish in it. Great reviews on the flavor this smoker produced from my friends and employees whom I have cooked for in it.This unit is easy to use and easy to clean. I've used three different types of wood chips in it Apple , Hickory, and Mesquite. All have produced good smokey flavor and work well with my dry and wet rubs. I would recommend this product to a friend without hesitation. It doesn't require too much wood chips to get a deep smoke ring in the meat. It maintains the heat you set it to and the timer works well also. The internal tempt prob work well also.

Great Electric Smoker!
5 Star Review   By BobV on Home Depot - Feb 12, 2013   

We bought this on the reccomendation of a friend. Ours is not as pictured, it has a stainless finished front with a window so you can see the meat inside. We love this smoker - it works great! Even on freezing (32F) days, with the smoker on the back porch we turn it on and it comes up to smoking temps in 30 minutes or less. The chip-loading port is easy to use, and four racks give it plenty of room inside. I did four dozen chicken wings in at once in under 90 minutes for the Super Bowl! The controller works intuitively and the thermometer is very accurate. There is also a built-in meat thermometer which is very accurate and handy. The only thing I found a bit frustrating is that there are no reccomended cooking times (well - it comes with two recipes, but this is not that helpful) - Masterbuilt publishes separate cookbooks which have great recipes and cooking times and unless you want to experiment a lot you pretty much have to but one of these cookbooks for about $15.00 to figurre out cooking times for various cuts and weights of meat.

At best this is a oven on wheels with a bin for wood chips
3 Star Review   By Karin on Home Depot - Feb 6, 2013   

This is not a "Smoker". You can "cook" stuff while imparting a smoke flavor but you cannot cold smoke in it. I found the quality to be flimsy, you better be prepared for some serious moisture control if you are using it outside (and that is the only place you CAN use it). Do not leave it outside exposed to the elements without a tarp. Their cover for the thing leaks and does not provide protection. I have smoked 4 pounds of Canadian Bacon on my covered Verandah during a tornado warning, the probe worked fine, so did the timer. After the fire department rescued me from my flooded basement I thought they deserved the Canadian bacon so I don't know how it turned out. Smoking a lightly brined Boston Butt tomorrow. If Home Depot sold ovens of that size and quality for that price they would go broke..

Let's just say we have smoked something every weekend since Christmas. I bought this for my husband and he loves it. It's the perfect amount of smoky taste and perfect cook every time. Can't go wrong when you have a remote to tell you what's going on. LOL LOVE THIS PRODUCT!

THIS PRODUCT HAS GREAT FEATURES
4 Star Review   By NONEOFYOURBUSINESS on Home Depot - Jan 23, 2013   

IT IS EASY TO USE, HAS GREAT ELECTRONIC CONTROLS, WELL INSULATED SO YOU DON'T GET BURNED ON THE OUTSIDE. BUT NEGATIVELY THE GLASS IS VERY DIFFICULT TO CLEAN BECAUSE CLEANERS ARE PROHIBITED AND THE REMOTE SEEMS TO MESS UP WHAT IS PROGRAMMED INTO THE MAIN CONTROL PANEL.

Love my smoker!
4 Star Review   By DRSnola on Home Depot - Jan 22, 2013   

Easy to operate and can find great recipes on YouTube. We've had it for two weeks and have smoked ribs, a pirk shoulder and a whole chicken. Totally delicious results. Only thing I would have done differently is that I would have saved a few bucks by purchasing the unit without the glass door. After the 1st use the glass was black from the smoke so you can't see thru it. Cleaning the glass according to the manufacturers recommendations was no help.

Versatile and outstanding combination of features!
5 Star Review   By Steph on Home Depot - Jan 3, 2013   

You like versatility in preparing foods, you need one of these. Very easy to set up and get started. excellent temperature control, even in cold weather conditions. Very easy to clean and maintain. The wheels make it a cinch to move. Smoke (hot or cold), jerk, roast it does it all with precise control. Plenty of rack space, and not having to open the door to add wood keeps cook times consistant.

The Masterbuilt is an outstanding product...performed every bit as expected!
5 Star Review   By Bill on Home Depot - Dec 4, 2012   

I took a risk and ordered my smoker about 10 days before Thanksgiving...Home Depot's staff made no absolute commitments regarding delivery (which I understood) but told me not to worry. Had the unit in 3 days and put together in 15 minutes. The smoker worked like a charm smoking a 20 pound turkey (which I cut into parts). It was in the low 30's the night before Thanksgiving (DC area) so I used my remote control to check time and temperature from my bedroom! The whole thing was intuitive and easy to use! The turkey was excellent, injected and smoked with a hickory-apple combination. By the way, used my Masterbuilt Turkey Fryer XL to fry another which was excellent as well...thanks Home Depot and Masterbuilt for making this a great holiday and family get together!

Great Smoker
5 Star Review   By jimp on Home Depot - Nov 13, 2012   

Seasoned unit and then smoked 2 beef briskets. Eleven hours later I was eating juicy smoked brisket. I only loaded smoke pan twice in eleven hours. Probably could have loaded smoke pan one more time to get a larger smoke ring. Still got rave reviews from family. Used a dry rub of garlic salt, Lawery's, onion pawder, black pepper, and dry musterd.

Only lasted 3 years.
3 Star Review   By Jake on Home Depot - Oct 2, 2012   

I've only had this smoker 3 years. It worked great until this summer, when I noticed that my wood chips are only burning in half the pan, which obviously means element is going bad. Also the temperature control isn't controlling. Set temp at 180 degrees and it goes up to 210. Can't buy heating elements.

Bad Product
1 Star Review   By smoker on Home Depot - Sep 28, 2012   

The heating element failed after 3 years. The water pan developed pin hole leaks and the stainless steel exterior rusted. This is strictly a disposable unit good for a handful of uses only.

This is a fantastic smoker, particularly for newbies
5 Star Review   By Thomas on Home Depot - Sep 23, 2012   

Using this thing couldn't be easier, and it is a great product for people like me who never really did any "real" smoking previously. Although it isn't huge, it can fit a ton of stuff (recently had a party and did 4 full racks of spare ribs and two 9 lb pork shoulders in it). The smoker box/tray works as designed, but it can get tedious adding chips every hour or so. To make things simpler I bought a smoker tray/box from Amazen products that uses pellets and works great (give up to 10 or 12 hours of smoke depending on how much you use). As a con I said "difficult to clean", but that would be true of any smoker.

Masterbuilt has terrible quality control
1 Star Review   By HDshopper on Home Depot - Aug 21, 2012   

The first one I received was broken. Took it back and got another one in March, 2012. Worked great until August 2012 when the temperature just stopped working (when I had 4 racks of meat waiting to go in). I checked online and these smokers have this problem often. Home Depot is wonderful, they took it back and gave us a store credit. I hope to find another smoker here at HD.

I Had high hopes for this smoker
1 Star Review   By Hicks on Home Depot - Aug 13, 2012   

After 2 uses, the internal probe was stuck on 169 degrees, The smokers internal temperature regardless of it's digital reading was 350 degrees. I spoke with a person at masterbilt, who wanted an invoice prooving I purchased the item, after I provided that, they wanted me to provide them the backing plate, and, a chopped off piece of the electrical cord. After which they would mail me a cabniet, which I must re-assemble with parts from my origional smoker. It would only take me 3 hours to repair, so I should be happy right... I am not masterbilts office help. mail room clerk or service person.... Very vexing experience. The product was returned to Home Depot.

Great product
5 Star Review   By ksugar on Home Depot - Jul 31, 2012   

I gave this smoker to my son in California and it was so nice not to have shipping and he absolutely LOVED it. He is in the process of seasoning the inside of the smoker and he especially loves the ability to see his food items when he's cooking. So far all he has cooked, chicken, pork, and ribs have been GREAT!

3 Star Review   By Drooby on Home Depot - Jul 18, 2012   

Not sure how well the unit will hold up. Very easy to use. Clean up is simple. I wish unit came with some type of cook book and guide. I guess it's just an excuse to drink more and try more bbq.

Your local rib joint is going to lose a customer!
5 Star Review   By Ribman on Home Depot - Jul 18, 2012   

I can't say enough good things about this smoker. It is super easy to use and it looks cool too. I have done all the foods that you would think of as standard smoking fare like ribs, brisket, brots, and sausage. On top of that veges are awesome as well as wings. I took regular frozen wings, popped them in for 2.5 hrs and they are absolutely awesome. Get one. You won't regret it.

Good results the first time out.
4 Star Review   By BakerMan on Home Depot - Jul 11, 2012   

We have smoked ribs and a 10 lb batch of homemade stuffed sausage. They came out great. We had to make our own rods to hang the sausage links. The chip hopper was fantastik, no more opening and closing the door while all the heat escapes. The wheels are too small to move across the lawn easily. Maybe we have to build a deck. You have to decide which control you want to use. You can't start with the unit control and then switch to the remote for a change in time or temp. The unit might shut down. Over all a convenient unit. Better than the previous smokers we have used.

Easy to use and works great!
5 Star Review   By Matt on Home Depot - Jul 10, 2012   

The digital control coupled with the remote control make a great product very easy to use. I have used other electric smokers before - and this is hands and feet above. The digital control panel lets you set the desired temperature, gives you a readout of the current temperature, and the included meat thermometer lets you monitor when your food is at your desired wellness. The remote control, while simple, also gives all the same readings and control that the digital control panel provides. The only negative with the remote control is that its settings do not mirror the control panel. If you want to use the remote control - only use the remote control. If you want to use the control panel - only use the control panel. (When using the remote, you can monitor temperatures on the control panel, just don't change any settings.) Adding wood chips during cooking is also very easy with the side port. With this model, the wood chips do not need to be soaked in water prior to using. This prevents the need to plan ahead the amount of chips needed - a very nice feature. You are supposed to be able to monitor when more chips are needed by looking in the side port - but it is very dark and hard to see. I simply judged the need for chips by the amount of smoke visible in the cooker. The window is also a very nice feature. While the visibility is not great through the window (due to condensation and smoke), having it there is very useful and prevents the need to open the smoker for most any reason. The food I have smoked so far has come out great!

5 Star Review   By COTTON on Home Depot - Jul 8, 2012   

IT IS THE FIRST ELECTRIC SMOKER THAT I HAVE HAD. I LOVE HOW IT WORKS AND THE MEAT PROBE. THE REMOLT CONTROL IS NICE BUT IT WILL ONLY WORK ABOUT 50 FEET AND NOT 100 FEET AS ADVERTISED.

Sturdy, effective at smoking, very easy to use
4 Star Review   By Cybrboi2k on Home Depot - Jul 4, 2012   

Bought this for the 2012 summer season. My first time owning a smoker. Food tastes amazing. The unit has two wheels on the back, so you can wheel it around the patio. I wish there were wheels on the front as well, as the door is heavy in the front. The window in the door allows you to see how far along the food is... but after just 3 weeks, it's getting tougher to keep the window clean. The thermostat is accurate. Remote control is fantastic when it's hot outside and you're inside. My few complaints would be that loading new wood chips in the side loader can get frustrating. It doesn't always slide in and out very easily. When setting the time and temp on the unit directly, you can't seem to use the remote control to monitor the progress. I have to set the unit from the remote if I want to monitor the progress with it. Otherwise, I recommend it.

A great smoker!
5 Star Review   By Harry on Home Depot - Jul 3, 2012   

I love my new smoker...period. I really like the remote control for programming indoors instead of out in the heat. I like the glass door so I can see what I'm smoking and its progress before deciding to open the door. It's a mess to clean though - I'm not talking about the shelves per se, but the smoker overall. I never knew wood chips could make such a mess. Still, I enjoy what it produces, so I guess clean-up is the price we pay for home smoked goodies. And the GREAT price and brand name make it all the sweeter.

It's Great
5 Star Review   By BJ1234 on Home Depot - Jul 3, 2012   

Works great. No problems. I liked the idea of the windowed door so could look in on what's. Cooken' but in reality I couldn't really see anything - to dark in there, too much smoke to see, or window is dirty (tough to keep clean). Heats up quickly, has wheels to make moving a snap, meat probe is good, but wish I could set it to turn off when probe hits specified temp. Very nice unit.

1 Star Review   By Furby on Home Depot - Jun 2, 2012   

Purchased in August 2011. We had a great time smoking beef and pork. Didn't use it throughout the winter. April 2012 went to use it and it wouldn't work. No where near the quality I would expect from Masterbuilt.

Quality, easy-to-use product
4 Star Review   By PGS37 on Home Depot - May 19, 2012   

Easily assembled, although the instructions could have used clearer illustrations. Accurate temperature control, simple temp and timer controls. Needs to be loaded with chips fairly often, as the hopper doesn't hold much, but if you follow the directions you'll get outstandin results. Highly recommended.

5 Star Review   By Mindy on Home Depot - May 9, 2012   

It can't get much easier than using this smoker! It's built very well, love the remote control, and meat probe thermometer is excellent. The only real work involved is clean up, but it wipes down very easy. My first use I made ribs and pulled pork which was some of the best BBQ I've ever had! No more guess work and walking in and out every 30 minutes to check the temperature, etc.

Excellent Smoker
5 Star Review   By HeatherL on Home Depot - May 1, 2012   

I researched for a few months on which smoker to buy. I finally took the leap and bought the MES 30 and I'm glad I did. There's a slight learning curve with this smoker, mainly to do with the remote control. If you plan on using the remote, then you have to set your times and temperature with the remote. You can view the meat probe temperature by pressing the probe button twice. Do not rely on the stock meat probe's temperature readings. Sometimes it is on, but other times, it can be as much as 15F off. Do yourself a favor and pick up a seperate meat probe. Remote ones are pretty cheap and you'll find you're going to need a couple handy if you're smoking more than one slab of meat. For the most part, this smoker is "set it and forget it" except for loading the chips. For the much sought after "thin blue smoke" or TBS, you only use a couple of chips at a time--which you'll have to reload every 45min - hour. The last thing you want are billows of smoke. I've read complaints about the window (on other sites) getting gooped up from the smoke. All you need to do is wipe it down with water and paper towels. I've made a couple of pork butts (pulled pork), whole chicken, and cold smoked bacon in this unit and can't wait to get some more meat in there.

Wonderful!!!
5 Star Review   By JustMe2 on Home Depot - May 1, 2012   

What an awesome smoker! Just set the temperature, put the meat in, and walk away! Nothing to do except occasionally replenish the wood chips. Very well insulated. Gets up to temp quickly, and maintains the temp + or - 5 degrees. Makes it so easy to produce beautifully smoked meats.

Great Product!
5 Star Review   By Brent on Home Depot - Apr 13, 2012   

If you love smoked meat, this is a great product for you... I own two Master Built Smokers and I love them... One is gas and the other is this product... If I want to cook something very slowly, I use the eclectic. You set the temp and all you need to do is add some wood chips every couple hours... It holds temp like my oven,,, However, After the first time using this product, the window is useless!!!! It also has a remote that I haven’t figured out yet… I hope this helpful to you…

3 Star Review   By rock on Home Depot - Feb 14, 2012   

Great smoker, easy to use. I do like the termperature control and timer. However this is the second master built smoker I have purchased. After two or three years the heating element shorts out and the unit pops the house breakers after you turn it on. Then if you try and buy a replacement element for it you find out it is not offered for sale because this product is made in China.......

I am a first time smoker owner and I did a lot of research before deciding on this smoker. The value for the features it provides are excellent. We have used it everyday for the past week and have been very happy with the results. Of course I have only owned it a short while so I can not speak to the long term durability but so far we are really happy with the product and the excellent food it is producing.

I have used it twice, both time smoking a large piece of Salmon. I found a good recipe were I brined the Salmon for 24 hours then smoked it. It turned out GREAT. I will be moving on to other meats / items. I expect to have the same wonderful results. Clean up has been easy. Temperature is steady. Overall it has been easy and fun to use.

Excellent smoke food while on the couch
5 Star Review   By Toyidiot on Home Depot - Dec 18, 2011   

To say this smoker does all the work for you is not much of an exaggeration. After the easy assembly and brief break-in period the smoker is ready to do what it does best: that is smoke food for you while you watch TV. Once the meat is on the grills and the liquid is in the pan the only involvement from you is to occasionally add wood chips. The entire smoking process can be controlled by the remote control while you are inside. That is simply... genius!!! A bit of advice: add wood chips in smaller increments and smaller time intervals. Too many chips at once will not allow all of them to completely burn. The smoker is tightly sealed so most all the smoke produced will go toward flavoring the food. A little experimenting with the smoke flavor will be required but the results will not be disappointing either way. Clean-up is relatively easy but I recommend the smoker be warm so any unwanted residue can more easily be removed. The glass front is nice for aesthetics but will only let you view smoke (assuming you put chips in) and much the same can be said about the light. They are not totally useless but you really don't need them. Overall this is one of the easiest and most convenient smokers on the market. The professional smokers may argue about specifics but this smoker will produce great results for any amateur. Enjoy.

Well built, and easy to use
4 Star Review   By PaulD on Home Depot - Dec 13, 2011   

I have used it several times since I received it and have been very happy with the results. At first I thought the remote control was just a gimmick, but it is essential when smoking meat and being able to determine the internal temperature from a distance away from the smoker. Have had rave reviews for smoked salmon, and elk jerky. The only short coming so far is the small fire box that needs to be replenished frequently to keep the smoke going.

Must have for any level of experience, very user friendly!
5 Star Review   By ER1981 on Home Depot - Dec 13, 2011   

I am a fishing guide in SE Alaska and have been looking for a smoker that remains cool enough to smoke salmon properly. Well, this is definitely the one! I have been able to keep it as cool as 105 degrees and the smoke keeps coming out. Very very satisfied with this purchase and would recommend this smoker to anyone. My Dad and Brother are both getting one after they tasted my smoked salmon, chicken, and pork. My mom even wants me to smoke a prime rib for Xmas. I would definitely get the smoker with the remote control as well. How easy to sit in the nice warm house by the fireplace and not be nervous about whats going on inside the smoker, unbelievably cool! I hope it last for many years to come.
