This is a section of the site called "User Reviews". I will be inviting members of prominent Owner Groups on Facebook to write a honest and independent review about their personal grills and smokers.
Up next is Greg Wester who is the creator of the My Masterbuilt Electric Smoker group with his review of the Masterbuilt 20070311 40-Inch.
Masterbuilt 20070311 40-Inch Top Controller Electric Smoker on Amazon
Greg has created this amazing video review:
As I paid more attention to him smoking I began to see the drawbacks and limitations of it though. It uses a proprietary wood puck system, it had a hard time maintaining a constant temperature, had a very bad hot spot(entire rear of the smoker) and in the Minnesota winter it couldn't get up to a smoking temperature.
I wanted a smoker and at that time(2011) the selection of electric smokers was quite limited. The more I researched the more I was drawn to the Masterbuilt line.
I purchased the model 20070311. It is basic, easy to use, well insulated, it has a nice wood chip loading system that doesn't require someone to open the door and it doesn't use a proprietary wood puck.
I still have this smoker and I love it. It can heat from 120°-275° and can run continuously for upto 24 hours. It has 4 racks and can smoke a lot if meat.
I'm a bbq enthusiast and I have several other smokers, but I keep coming back to this one. " - Greg Wester
Greg has kindly supplied us with some great photos of dish's he has cooked with his Masterbuilt:
That was a great review by Greg with some very useful insights. If you were on the fence about getting a Masterbuilt then I'm sure this review has helped.
