The verdict is in. For the money the Masterbuilt 40" smoker is probably the best mid size I have ever purchased. It took them a long time to get it right but they finally did. I have ran every test cook I can think of and all were a success. With the A-Maze-N pellet tray, it is a true set and forget smoker. I placed my six inch tube in it with no heat to check for cold smoking. The cabinet maintained an 86 to 88 degree temperature with two hours of smoke from the tube. Perfect for cheese, fish etc.
As a bonus I can get my favorite pellets in Clinton, now at Revell Ace Hardware. They are 9.99 on Amazon plus shipping.
At Revell they are 5.99 for hickory, 4.99 for Apple. These are the finest pellets I have found out there.

Wanted smoked grape chicken slaw yesterday. Rather than thaw a previously smoked bird. I bought one and half a pork loin.
Filled two rows of the maze, smoked chicken three hours to 165, pork was about an hour pulled it at 155. Both were fantastic and the tray smoked a total of 8 hours which is exactly what it is supposed to do.

I bought one of those Master built smokers too and I am very happy with mine.

No Jv, order it from Amazon. 31.99 I think. If you order an extra bag of pellets you will get free shipping over 35.00.

Jv, you can purchase 40 lb. bags 29.99.
But they are not the BBQ ers Delight. I have tried several different types and these work best for me. I am sure you can find them in your neck of the woods.

Academy and BassPro, carry them. I just hate fighting the traffic to go there. If you are anywhere near a Revell Ace Hardware, I would stop there. I would be happy to pick them up and send to you if you don't have time to stop and shop.

If you get the maze, just remember that the lighting process is very important. Use a propane torch and light until they began to burn. Let burn for ten minutes, blow out flame and place in the Masterbuilt. Remove the chip tube and chip pan, I place mine under the drip pan length wise, works perfectly. Also open top vent wide open for the first hour then half way. Be prepared for a ton of blue smoke. Try different pellets to find the one's you prefer. I personally love the BBQ rs Delight. But there are a lot of good ones on the market.

I watched a video a couple of days ago on it......next thing I want to learn about is cold smoking, want yo smoke some cheese but have to read up on it to see what kind of cheese is best. Does it give smoke favor completely all the way through the cheese or just the outside?

Jv, I cold smoke all types. Pepper jack, cheddar, Swiss, and many more. Two hours is plenty. The trick to cheese is aging after smoking. If you try to eat it right after smoking, it will taste like a dirty ash tray smells. Best to vac seal and store in the fridge for thirty days. The smoke will penetrate all the way through. After the wait time, you may want to lock the fridge or it will go missing. I have caught my grown son trying to steal it many times. He just asked me to smoke some for him. He bought a small piece at Kroger the other day and paid $ 9.00. I use hickory for my cheese but apple gives a milder flavor. If you're cabinet temp is above 90 you can place a pan of ice on a rack to keep the cabinet temperature down. You will be hooked on smoked cheese.
