Win a $429 Masterbuilt, Stainless Steel Electric Smoker

In the USA we have a little holiday coming up this weekend:  Labor Day.  Since this holiday is meant to celebrate the end of summer and experience a day of rest, many Americans organize barbecues and parties- taking advantage of the chance to get together with friends and family and share food.  I follow the masses, and celebrate this holiday weekend in the same way.  Masterbuilt and I have joined forces to give away one of their fabulous stainless steel electric smokers to one lucky RecipeGirl reader.  Wouldn’t this be fun to use for a holiday celebration? Here’s what it looks like:

Highlights:
* 40″ tall, stainless steel
* Viewing window and internal light
* Push-button digital time temperature & time control panel
* Thermostat controlled temperature
* Chrome-coated smoking racks
* Convenient side wood-chip loader
* Removable drip pan and rear-mounted grease pan

What can you smoke with this?  Well, just about anything.  You can smoke the usual things like ribs and chicken and turkey and salmon.  But Masterbuilt has also developed recipes and instructional videos for smoking things like leg of lamb, pork butt, potatoes, corn on the cob, macaroni & cheese (yum!), etc.  I have one of these arriving at my house soon.  I’m pretty darn excited to try it out.  And I’m certain that there will be smoked turkey on the dinner table this Thanksgiving. Here’s a recipe how-to video using the smoker- it’s a little smaller and it’s black instead of stainless, but it will give you an idea of how it all works. You might just get a kick out of CEO John McLemore’s strong southern drawl too. He has written a cookbook called “Dadgum that’s Good,” (coming out this fall). I might have to buy that one, just because of the title :)

Disclaimer: I was not paid to work with Masterbuilt on this giveaway opportunity, but they did (generously) send me a smoker to try out for myself.
