August Giveaway: Masterbuilt Electric Digital Smoker


I am thrilled about my August Giveaway because it is my best one yet.

Just in time for Labor Day and leading into the holidays, Masterbuilt is sponsoring the giveaway of their 30" Electric Digital Smoker, that's a $299 value!

First, a little bit about Masterbuilt. They are a second generation, family owned company that has been making quality smoking, grilling, and frying equipment since 1973. You can find their products at major retailers such as Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart, and Gander Mountain. They also make cargo, bike carriers, and other hitch mounted accessories.

Here is what I like about the Masterbuilt Electrical Digital Smoker:

  • The Masterbuilt Electric Digital Smoker is a great fit for most of my readers who like bbq but are intimidated about the thought of firing up a big smoker. If you can use an oven you can use this smoker, it's electronically controlled with a digital keypad.
  • This would be a nice addition even if you already have a grill (or like me, have a Big Green Egg, an offset smoker, and a grill).
  • Even though it doesn't take up a lot of space, it has 4 racks of capacity so you can cook an entire meal on it like Don McLemore does in this video (skip to the 5 minute mark if you just want to see the unit in action)

  • It has a temperature range of 100-275f so you can not only do the typical low and slow bbq of ribs, butts, brisket and chicken, you can also do some cold smoking like cheese, spices, and salmon by adding ice to the water pan.
  • It has a water pan for keeping the cooking chamber moist during cooking.
  • The drip pan is removable for easy cleaning.
  • It has a remote probe meat thermometer that is integrated with the control pad so you can tell the meat temps without opening and closing the smoker.
  • It has a window so you can see how things are cooking without opening and closing the smoker.
  • You can refill the wood chips from the side access chute without opening and closing the smoker. (Seeing a patten here? Well designed.)
I am excited to be able to host this giveaway because one of you is going to get this easy to use and feature rich smoker just in time to cook up a storm for Labor Day weekend, the football season and the holidays!!!!!! I'm just disappointed that I can't enter and win!
