Football season is here and you know what this means, don’t you? It means millions of wives, including myself, around the country become sports widows every Monday night, Saturday, and Sunday. While groups of men gather in front of their 60″ wall mounted tvs shouting at each other and at the referees while hootin’ and hollering for their favorite team to win, chances are good there is a lot of meat being consumed in the form of smoked ribs and other types of meat. Or maybe you’re a hunter or fisherman and you smoke your own meat. Or…. maybe you’re like me and prefer smoked turkey cooked slow and low.
Well I have some good news for you today. The fine folks at Masterbuilt have teamed up with Savory Sweet Life to give away a $430 stainless-steel 40″ Electric Digital Smoker with window. Here are the specs:
- Viewing window and internal light
- Push-button digital time temperature & time control panel
- Thermostat controlled temperature
- Chrome-coated smoking racks
- Convenient side wood-chip loader
- Removable drip pan and rear-mounted grease pan
- retails for $429.99
When Masterbuilt sent me this smoker to try out, I was a bit intimidated by it. I’ve never smoked meat before and was nervous I would screw it up somehow. But I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to use. I bought a bone-in turkey breast to smoke using hickory wood chips. The manual was very easy to follow and by dinner time, our family was eating juicy, tender turkey and mashed potatoes. I liken this smoker to a slow cooker except for meat. Most articles I’ve read online rave about the best ribs being smoked in one of these babies. I plan on smoking ribs for a future game day. Masterbuilt also has a very user-friendly website complete with recipes, how-to videos, manuals, and product information. You should also check out Masterbuilt’s CEO, John McLemore’s site, Damgum That’s Good for more videos and recipes.
Who should buy this smoker? Passionate carnivores should definitely consider buying this smoker, barbecue enthusiasts -professional barbecue competitors swear by these, and people who hunt or fish. I know people who take their meat to a smoke shop and if you do this often, it becomes more cost effective to smoke your own meat. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, you could easily smoke a medium sized turkey in here for your holiday dinner. Or, throw some racks of pork ribs in their for your next Superbowl party.
