Some Helpful Masterbuilt Smoker Tips

  • Follow the instructions in your user manual for preseasoning your masterbuilt smoker before you start cooking with it. Preseasoning is an important step that helps remove any factory residue from inside the cooking chamber. 
  • Always preheat your masterbuilt smoker to the desired temperature for 20 -30 mn before adding your meat.
  • Avoid covering the cooking racks with foil. The aluminum foil paper actually prevents heat circulating evenly, and can cause inconsistent temperatures during the cooking process.
  • The temperature gauge on your masterbuilt smoker is usually a few degrees higher or lower than the actual temperature inside. Use a second internal thermometer that can be calibrated to ensure you’re getting the right reading.
  • Use your masterbuilt smoker for low and slow smoking. The key is to give your food the time it needs to absorb the flavors and cook through evenly. Smoking meat can take anywhere from 3 – 22 hours.
  • Don’t overheat your food. 160 – 225 degrees is the appropriate range for producing the right amount of smoke and moisture in your smoked dishes.
