Masterbuilt Dual Fuel Smoker Modifications

Mod 3: Using cast iron skillet and grill grate

I hope you already have an original wood chip pan. It could be better if you replace the original one with a quality pan.
I faced a lot of issues. It flared up a lot. So I decided to take another cast iron skillet.
Also I am using a grill grate with a wood chip pan.
In this way you can prevent from flares up and you will get great smoke.


Steps to follow:

  • Put the grill on the bottom of smoke chamber.
  • Then place your cast iron wood chip pan over the grill.

How to season Masterbuilt Dual Fuel Smoker Modifications?

Steps to follow:

  • Remove all the components
  • Rub the entire side of the smoker, front door and the grates with the vegetable oil.
  • Keep back inside all the components.
  • Add some apple wood or your favourite one with charcoal.
  • Let burn up to 350 degrees for an hour .
  • After an hour let it cool down.
  • Then again bring the temperature to 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
  • Once your smoker cools down, respray it again.
  • Then bring the temperature up to 350 degrees for another 20 minutes.
  • Now let the temperature drop.

Masterbuilt pro dual fuel smoker temperature control.

Sometimes there is a problem in bringing the temperature below 275 and up to 225.
Maybe some kind of amendment you read in the forum. For example Bayou Classic Adjustable Regulator and Needle Valve.
But I would encourage you to take a little pain here because it is an incredibly easy way to control the temperature.

So, turn on your  power button and burner. As soon as you rotate the knob from high to low, it doesn’t come on low flame.
So what will you do to bring it into the slow flame? You just turn the knob from the bottom up and turn at 11 o’clock like shown in the image.

If you want to  modify your pro dual fuel smoker with Bayou regulator and Needle Valve then go for it. I am providing a product link here please check out and share your experience.
