Electric Smokehouse Smokers Recalled Due to Fire Hazard
Masterbuilt Manufacturing is recalling approximately 11,000 Electric Smokehouse Smokers. The wood chip tray can fail to slide securely into the smoker, causing the wood to combust and the smoker's cabinet door to blow open, posing a fire hazard.

Model number 20070312 or 20070512 is printed on the serial plate located on the rear panel of the smoker. The smokers have a screen printed Masterbuilt logo on the window and on the serial plate.
