Masterbuilt Electric Smoker Rebuild

So I was driving around the other day and I pass a Masterbuilt Eletric Smoker just sitting at someone’s curb. I stopped my car in the middle of the road and then pulled to the side.

It was a rusty, warn out, sad little thing that just needed a little love. Taped to the top of it was the original manual as well as a note that read; All parts inside. Heat coil needs to be repaired.

So I threw it into the back of my car and sped off towards my home.

I proceeded to begin cleaning it. It was an absolute mess. It was filled with cobwebs, rust, dirt, and even left over food residue.


I began cleaning the grates and the coil.


The coil was good, the wires had rusted and broke. I replaced the wire terminals and reattached the coil. I then touched up some rust spots.

Then came time to test this wonderful machine. I first ran it for 3 hours at 250 just to see if it would hold temp. It was working fine so I added a rack of ribs and was really happy with the result.

Crockpot BBQ – Brisket

I know, I know.. a crockpot is not a smoker but you can still get great food from it using the same food prep techniques and most people will love it just the same.

What you will need:

  • Brisket flat
  • Rub

Brisket top is when they take the brisket and cut it in half. You end up with just the flat part and not the point. It’s a lot easier to get prepped and cooks in half the time.

Brisket comes with a lot of fat on the top. You need to trim it down a bit. This video will explain what to look for when breaking it down:

Now its time to rub it down. Coat the whole brisket with rub.

Throw it in the crockpot and let it sit on high for 5-7 hours. Once it’s done, it should fall apart and you should end up with a pile of deliciousness like this.
