Newcomers to the art of meat smoking may find it difficult to choose the perfect device to start with. Thankfully, options like the Masterbuilt 20078616 make this decision a bit easier. This all-electric smoker can put out temperatures of up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit to smoke many types of meat. It is excellent for small home spaces or camping trips and other travel.
Affordable Price Will Appeal
Beginners to smoking meat are often interested in finding a deal on their first smoker. Of course, that is not the only thing of importance, as you also want a piece of equipment that will last. The good news is you can get both things with some models, including the Masterbuilt 20078616 Electric Bullet. The price is perfect for beginners, and the features are there for learning the art of smoking.
Easy Use, Even for Beginners
The design of the Electric Bullet is similar to barbecue grills that you are likely familiar with. Use is simple, as well. To start cooking, you add water, wood chips, and plug into an outlet. Then you only need to set a temperature, wait for it to heat up, and cook away. The best results come when you do not overfill the smoker, allowing it some space for smoke to permeate the nooks and crannies.
Size and Cooking Space
The Electric Bullet gives you 395 square feet of space to cook within. Up to 50 pounds of meat can fit inside, with chickens, turkeys, and briskets being popular choices. This smoker also comes with porcelain-coated racks, as well as a built-in temperature gauge. You can see the latter through the lid of the smoker, so you are never left guessing about how the meat is doing.
Cleaning and Care
Being a small smoker, this model is simple to clean. You need only remove the lid and clean that racks with a cloth or wet paper towel. The water bowl, chip tray, and drip pan also require cleaning after each use. Some smoke residue is likely to stay behind, but it will not cause any adverse reactions to your meats. For those who want to store the device outside, a tarp or grill cover is an essential buy, as well, to ensure the cooker keeps operating over the long haul.
