    Hi Guys,

    Just ordered the Masterbuilt Digital Electric 30" Smoker.

    Looking forward to lots of meat and fish.

    Just getting into smoking, other than playing around with smoker boxes on my gas grill.

    Any initial words of advice? 



  2. Check the temp inside the smoker with an accurate thermometer against what the smoker temp is set at before using. If it's off, you can add/subtract when setting the temp to make up for the difference. Mine is off by a good 15°.

    Welcome from SC, Robert. It's really good to have you on this great site.
  5. Masterbuilt 30" digital electric. I just got it last week, and I've made some great BBQ in it, but it doesn't get up to the set temp. The actual temp inside is at least 15° lower. I called customer service about it and was told it's probably a faulty control unit and they are shipping me a new one. Great customer service.
