A Smokin' Giveaway!

My husband loves to cook outdoors. He loves to smoke food, but his never turned out as great as we expected. It could have been the uneven temperatures and constant opening and closing of the grill. Sometimes my husband would smoke for hours, only to sit down to dinner and find out he needed to cook the meat a little longer. Over the past two weeks, his outdoor cooking has greatly improved. We owe it all to Masterbuilt! We were sent a great Electric Digital Smoker that takes the guesswork out of smoking! It's nice to have an actual smoker for smoking instead of smoking on one side of a charcoal grill or using a smoker box. The unit is quite attractive. It was very easy to assemble and it took us about 15 minutes to put it together. The instructions are easy to follow. The digital controls are easy to read and they are mounted on top of the smoker. A meat probe is included and it is really accurate when it comes to measuring the temperature of your meal! The smoker features a viewing window and internal light, a push-button digital time temperature & time control panel, thermostat controlled temperature, sturdy chrome-coated smoking racks, a convenient side wood-chip loader, and  removable drip pan and rear-mounted grease pan! The smoker is really easy to clean. Instead of leaving it to soak, my husband was able to clean the smoker racks and drip pan in about 5 minutes! Smoking at lower temperatures is easier if you add a little charcoal to the wood-chip holder. We found that doing so jump starts the smoking process! We also soaked our chips for at least one hour before using them. We loved using the smoker and we are already planning our next meal! So far, we have smoked a whole turkey (it was the juiciest turkey I've ever had!) and a pork roast. They fell apart on the platter when we tried to cut into them! They were moist and very flavorful!
