Guide Review - Master Forge Double Door Liquid Propane Gas Smoker
The 15,000 BTU burner is powerful enough to get this smoker up to temperature despite the fact that the doors won't fit tightly. It also has good smoke production, but when even the most ardent of fans of a product start out by telling you how to modify something to get it right, consumers should step away and look for something that was made correctly to begin with.
I do like the two doors, though that just makes the problem worse. With one door that lets you get to the food and one that lets you get to the wood chip and water pans you can hold in more heat than you would lose with one big door.
As an advertized "feature", this smoker has a folding side table that is large enough to hold a plate. In all honestly I don't find this any more than a gimmick and wish, once again, that in its place was a little thicker, stronger construction.
One last warning. The makers of this grill figured that they could give an extra grate to hold charcoal over the burner space, making this a "hybrid" smoker that runs on either liquid propane gas or charcoal. The problem with running it on charcoal is that this will accelerate the corrosion of the internal components further limiting the lifespan of the smoker. I would recommend keeping it on gas all the time. Or better yet, I would recommend looking for something better.
