Masterbuilt is recalling LP Gas Smokers because they pose a fire hazard. The smoker’s gas hose can disconnect, posing a fire hazard. There have been no reports of injuries, but Masterbuilt has received five reports of the PVC gas hose disconnecting during use. There has been one report of property damage from a fire.
The Masterbuilt 7-in-1 smoker comes in a green of stainless steel with a Cabela’s logo, or black with the Masterbuilt logo. The three-piece cylindrical body design consists of a lid, center body, and base which sits on the LP gas burner stand. It also has a porcelain flame disk bowl, water bowl, cooking grates, 10- quart pot and basket, thermometer, burner, a PVC hose and weighs about 32 pounds.
The smoker was sold at Army, Air Force Exchange, Cabela’s, Gander Mountain and other stores nationwide, and online at Amazon from April 2011 to October 2016, for about $150 to $200. About 41,000 units were sold in the U.S. and about 300 were sold in Canada. The product was manufactured in China.
