Best Digital Smokers Review
✅ Top #1 Pick: Masterbuilt MES 130B Review
The Masterbuilt MES 130B is a large smoker grill w/ 975 sq. inch. of space.
Large enough to cook 48 sausages or 24 burgers (at once!), it has 4 adjustable cooking racks + multiple hooks.
Masterbuilt special side-door lets you add wood chips for seasoning (great for BBQ ribs!).
– Hickory chips – mild flavor (most popular)
– Mesquite chips – smoke flavor, best for beef
– Applewood – best for chicken or pork
Personally I love that it comes w/ a remote control – glass door lets you monitor.
Interior light which you can turn on using the remote control. Stainless steel interior is also very easy to clean.
