About this deal

When pulled out, the top “heat intake” slide and the bottom “air intake” slide open up the airflow into the cooking chamber and into the lit coals, respectively. Then with the grill's wired probe, I cooked this steak (at 225 degrees) until its internal temp hit 110 degrees and set it aside.

Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can’t help you with time and temp questions. When I’m grilling a burger on a kamado, I always grab for a bag of Rockwood charcoal because my wife loves the way it tastes. There’s an expanded metal storage rack underneath the grill between the wheels that can be used for bags of charcoal. It stands to reason that in hotter summer weather you’ll get more burn time, and I await the chance to test Masterbuilt’s claims in summer weather.Charcoal-grilled food just tastes better, but the hassle of lighting, getting the grill up to temp, and cleaning up the resulting ash can be a significant deterrent. disperse a few chunks among the unlit coals (not just on top) when you add the charcoal, or 2) add chunks to the ash bucket, where the dropping hot ash will light the wood and cause it to smoke. I found I had to enter my phone’s settings and manually make it connect to the discovered Masterbuilt device on my phone’s Bluetooth menu. Next we removed the two slides that let air into the fire and the flames and heat into the grill, and opened the air-tight ash bucket door.

Masterbuilt assures us that this deterioration is harmless and may even be expected due to the heat of the fire and that the unit will remain functional and safe to use. I can’t wait to put this unit (or better yet, the Masterbuilt Gravity Series 1050) to the test and film our own Masterbuilt Gravity Series review. It’s recommended to put the ash in aluminum foil and pour a bit of water on them before placing in a waste bin. The devices should sync within seconds, confirmed by audible beeping and PAIR disappearing from the screen. One very minor inconvenience is that the lid to the hopper opens toward the grill, so if the grill lid is up, the hopper lid cannot fully open.With the Gravity Series, you’ll need to do this plus give attention to regular cleaning of the grease tray assembly and emptying of the grease tray itself. Over the years, we’ve bought our share of worthless barbecue gear that brought more frustration than good eats, and our mission is to help you identify the good ones. I had no trouble maintaining temperatures, and after about the first 30 minutes of the internal components coming up to temp, the cook temp stayed within 15-20 degrees of the setpoint as verified on a Maverick XR-50 remote BBQ thermometer.

The unit is designed for you to keep wood chunks in the ash can so that the broken up coals fall on the wood to keep it smoking while you’re cooking. Like any modern barbecue or smoker that is digitally controlled, the Masterbuilt smoker also has a blue tooth connection with an app. Lump charcoal, in addition to being lighter in a given volume, produces much less ash than briquets (learn more about charcoal and the differences between types here). As the fan kicked in to raise the cooking temp, I documented a greater variance between the unit’s readout and the temperature readings from our probes, but the variance quickly settled as the target temps were reached. The built-in fan, thermostatic controller, and gravity-fed charcoal make Gravity Series a plug and play charcoal grill and smoker.You can connect this cooker to your smart device via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi for remote monitoring and control, or ignore that technology altogether since it’s not required for operation.
