Masterbuilt 40 Inch 20075315 Electric Smoker Review

Masterbuilt 40 inch 20075315 Front Controller Electric SmokerThe Masterbuilt 40″ Front Controller Viewing Window RF Remote is the Rolls Royce of smokers. Everything that is optional on other smokers is standard on this one. Masterbuilt pulled out all the stop in the construction of this masterpiece, so I guess you could call it the masterpiece of Masterbuilt! With an integrated control and regulator panel with a blue light-emitting diode (LED) display that allows easy viewing even in the direct sunlight. It has a radio frequency (RF) remote built-in with meat probe and is fully-foam insulated to keep heat in. This Rolls Royce can cook eight turkeys or eight racks of ribs, 16 whole chickens or 75 sausages on four cooking trays. And, the RF remote allows you to control time, temperature, and even internal temperatures from the Living room while you watch the game. This smoker will be the centerpiece of your backyard BBQ gazebo or even on the patio. Even though you won’t need any other grill with this huge Masterbuilt smoker with the viewing window in the door for easy checks on the meat’s progress. Why spend the exorbitant price per pound for smoked salmon when you can professionally smoke Salmon, Trout, Tilapia and other fish, wild game, a Boston Butt or Brisket, or even a wheel of cheddar.

Digital Control Panel & RF Remote

Many of the new smoker on the market today have a digital display panel and some even give you both the temperature and time controls, but only a few give you an RF remote capable of controlling the time, temperature, and internal meat temperature. No need to leave the game just now, you can check everything from your recliner and if everything right, stay with the game. You’ll love the convenience of slow smoking a that ham shoulder and full-sized turkey for holiday get togethers with family and friends without having to spend much time checking internal temperatures with that old-fashion probe.

Cavernous Smoking Area

Just think about how much room you will use to smoke meats in this cavernous smoker, 40 inches is almost four feet. You could probably smoke a complete pig in this smoker, ribs, sausage, roasts, shoulders, hams, the whole enchilada! I mean, you’ll probably find yourself looking around the kitchen for more food to put in the smoker so you don’t waste any of that smoky goodness.
