Masterbuilt 40" Electric Smoker with Window

Recommended Posts

I'm interested in what the reviews are too. Wondering if the 40" is worth the extra money vs. the 30". I have an offset barrel smoker now but the temp can be a pain to regulate in cold or windy conditions and being able to hang sausage will be a plus too.

Looked at one today and it sure looks like a well built sturdy unit. I have a Bradley elec now with the 6 trays and auto feed puck system. But I sure like the looks and the features on this one!!!

I have the 30" no window. That size works for cooking for 8-10 people. I've had it for 4-5 years and it works perfect even in the dead of winter. Pellets last a long time, I fill it once at the beginning and once 2 hours later or so.

Only issue with mine is that when it's 20 degrees or colder I get an error message when I try to start it up (digital unit). I have to take a heat gun or a hair dryer and put it in the thing and close the door and heat it up for a minute or two to get it up to temperature so it then starts heating up. I just leave the heat gun hanging by my smoker and once I found out the problem it's only a small hassle.

It's nice with an electric unit to "set it and forget it" rather than goof around with trying to keep a proper temperature with non electric.

I like that right now Amazon has the 30" Digital with no window the model that is updated for $178 Not too shabby.

Glad to hear. I will probably go with the 40 as I do a lot of brats, salami, sticks and other stuff in larger quantities.

Thanks for the reviews. Amazon had it for over $500. But LM fleet had it for $359.

I never soak them, in the tray and on the burner they go. Don't need much. I also read that having the vent open just a bit is good. Sorry guys... I read it... lol

Captain,

the smoker could take your place of having to see a Psychologist especially come Winter. It's just another hobby that you can add to your tool belt. Bonus is that my wife actually 100% agrees with my doing this hobby.

I read the manual too and actually "seasoned" it per the instructions. It was the day after Christmas years ago and it must have been a very short manual.

I have the 40". Love it. I've learned less is more when it comes to putting wood in. I use pellets.

    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home. 
    • MJ 1657 I just bought an M50. Mills had them on sale for $129.99. The infared version was $139.99. Only been using it for about a week and so far I like it. That buck in the night time pictures is quite a ways out from the camera.    I've had a Moultrie 880 for years and it's been a solid camera.    MJ Did this Moultrie have picture video at the same time like the old 880? I have not found another camera to do that but the Moultrie and it's great. I'm running out of this version only have two left now.
