The Masterbuilt 20050211 is a smoker that has been talked about for years. We all know someone who has one, and more often or not they absolutely love it.
It has enough space to cook for a crowd but is somehow still small enough to take away on your yearly family get away to the woods (if you have a truck that is).
In my experience, the Masterbuilt 200502011 is a winner from the second it arrives. It is simple to set up, easy to use and delivers a consistently high standard of smoked meat.
Why else do I love it? Find out below in my Masterbuilt 20050211 review.
More room than you can shake a brisket at
Straight out of the box the unit is simple to navigate and operate. The touch ignition button and twist temperature knob are self explanatory and easy to use.
The fully removable and customisable racks make cooking a whole range of different meats, cuts and amounts possible no matter how big that pork butt is!
Keeping the Masterbuilt 20050211 clean means you have less maintenance to do.
The unit comes with good instructions on how to clean it, and its really not all that difficult. We have listed some of our top tips below;
All you need to do to clean out the wood chip holder is give it a brush after each use.
The cooking racks can be put in the dishwasher, just don’t use any caustic chemicals and ensure they are dry before you put them back.
The outside and inside areas only need a quick and simple wipe with a damp cloth.
Make sure you check the seals on the doors after each use.
This unit is cover under warranty and is guaranteed to be free from any material or workmanship defects for a period of 90 days after the original retail purchase.
Note: Any paint finishing and rust are not covered under this warranty.
The 20050211 has the best value for money I have come across in a long time. Its not often that you find something under the $200 mark that you get such high quality craftsmanship and usability.
I would recommend this smoker for everyone. However, its not jsut a smoker it would make a perfect over, warmer or even slow cooker.
Essentially you are paying very little for a unit that can cook almost anything, several different ways. Does it give you value for money? I say hell yes it does!
Masterbuilt is a brand that is very well known. It's a brand that you expect quality from. The 20050211 is no exception to this expectation.
For a smoker that comes in at under $200 I would say you would be silly to not get this beauty. There are a couple of issues like the thermometer and the wood chip bow, however they are both quick fixes which I don't think should deter you from this smoker.
If you are a backyard smoker, or starting off your own smoked meat business, I would say the 20050211 is a good investment for you and your friends, family or even customers.
You will more often than not find me tinkering around in my backyard. I will have one hand tightly gripped around a can of beer and the other hand tightly gripped around my spatula. Not so long ago (almost 8 years now) I got obsessed with Grilling, smoking and BBQ-ing. I can't get enough of it.. and neither can my family!
