Why is my Masterbuilt smoker not getting hot?
Masterbuilt Electric Smoker doesn’t provide enough heat to cook the meat evenly for using improper fuel. In this case, you can use quality wood chips or chunks like oak or hickory. Some of us soak the wood chips to let them not burn quickly. Another reason behind uneven heating is the chip tray of the smoker.
