husband loves his new smoker
Ecedes My expectations
October 21, 2013
It truly is a set and forget, set the temp and then set the time, put in the meat and fill the water pan, close it up, add the pellets for smoke. ( but you can't help but check it). I have done a pork butt for pulled pork (14 hours) Some pastrami , several slabs of ribs. All great. It is made in china but the only thing cheaply made is the latch, the rivet that holds the bottom part together keeps coming loose and I have to put it back in.

I love these wood chips
September 4, 2016
I love these wood chips. Pecan and Beech are my favorite. These 2 give anything I have smoked in my electric smoker Masterbuilt 20070115 Bluetooth Smart Digital Electric Smoker, 40-Incha wonderful flavor but not as strong tasting as mesquite.
Of these I only disliked the mesquite
May 12, 2016
I had tried all of the types of chips that weber sells (pecan, mesquite, hickory, cherry, and apple). Of these I only disliked the mesquite; it had a slight bitter taste (which is to be expected from mesquite).While the flavors were not extremely pronounced I could distinctly taste each of the flavors.I've smoked pork loins and beef brisket using these chips, each turned out great (even the mesquite).
These pecan wood chips give great flavor to chicken, fish, and pork.
November 1, 2015
I recently started using wood chips in a smoker box to get a good smoked flavor with my gas grill. I'm sure that there are several good brands of wood chips, but I find the Weber chips work really well in my smoker box. The "chips" are the right size to generate smoke easily without their catching on fire and burning up. There's a variety of sizes and shapes in each bag, so the smaller, thinner ones start smoking first, but then the bigger chunks start smoking later. This keeps them smoking over an extended period of time.The Weber package is 3 pounds which gives plenty of chips for lots of meals. At this price, I can also buy a few other varieties (apple, hickory, cherry) so I'm not stuck with one.If you're not sure what variety of wood chips to get, you can't go wrong with Pecan for chicken, fish, salmon, or pork. Pecan has a slightly sweet smoke, but more subtle than apple or cherry. If I want to play it safe and be sure I'll like the result, I use the pecan chips. If I'm feeling a little more experimental, I mix pecan with apple or cherry. You really can't go wrong with any of these.
Nice smooth smoke for a more gentle flavor
October 25, 2015
I bought these to use for some softer smoke flavor than you can get with the mesquite, hickory, or pecan. The first thing I smoked with them was a few racks of cheese. The smell is just wonderful. I plan on using these with some pork, chicken, and salmon as well.My brother was convinced that all smoked foods had the same harsh flavor but after sampling food I made with these, he is regularly asking me what I am going to smoke next.
or so in cool clean water yields the most flavor
October 5, 2015
I've been using this product for 6 years now. Here's what I've found. First off, I've also tried Cherry,pecan,hickory, & Mesquite. I favor the Apple. I've found that soaking about 30.min. or so in cool clean water yields the most flavor. Yes, I've tried without soaking and they burn too quick and flavor is slightly off (less). Soaking for 30.min. does get the outside of chips enough moisture to present the controlled burn to properly smoke. I have a Weber Summit 9 burner gas grill with a built-in Smoker box. I regularly smoke the following; Fish,Chicken,Pork,Corn,Zucchini, Shrimp, Clams, (Yes,Clams!). The only Red meat I'll smoke is Beef Burgers and never use the Apple, I prefer Hickory or Mesquite for that. If you care to know, I never cook as i smoke. I always smoke the food at hand ,RAW. I found that i get 2x the flavor if i lay food on the grill, raised a bit ,to be closer to the smoke. If you never smoked the meat,veg RAW, i highly advise it. You'll never go back! I let it smoke about 20 min or so,then cook. With this apple I've gotten my neighbor, who doesn't like fish or clams to try and like both. Love these Chips!! Go through 4 bags a season. Smoke on !!

Had to reassemble the wood pellet shoot. Was bent.
Nice smoker!
August 18, 2014
I love most of the features, but it needs one revision: a better way to load the pellets/chips. I use chips, and the chute is pretty awkward to use. You can work with it, and it's great to not have to open the door to add chips, but it could use a better design there. It's a definite step up from our older smoker which was heavily used when weather permitted. I love the timer, and I love that it comes with a sturday water and drip pan. The rollers make it easy to move. And I especially love that the element is not exposed as it was in my previous smoker. All in all, I am very pleased with purchase, and I would recommend this item.
cajan injector black electric smoker
February 18, 2014
I really like the digital setting ,set time & temp then just wait. Very easy to use. We only had to use 1/4 cup wood chips to get good flavor in our bacon. We made bacon & salami that tasted very good.The only bad thing, there wasn't a book or directions to figure out cooking times.
cajun injector electric smoker
August 30, 2013
We have been having a great time smoking a chicken, some ribs, brauts and some cheese. The where the pellets go in could be better but we are working around it.
Husband loves it!
July 8, 2013
Gave Cajun Injector Smoker to my husband for Father's Day. We have used it at least 4 times since then. He says it is much easier than charcoal, since it maintains the temp. He gets about an hour's worth of smoke from a handfull of pellets, and it's easy to add more. Built-in meat thermometer is real handy, as well. We've done ribs, chicken, sausage, and don't forget the corn (it's awsome). Can't wait for the pulled pork next weekend!

Lots of value
May 5, 2017
I was a little worried when I first placed my order as this was the least inexpensive of the chips. I really like the way the smoke flavors the wood and I don't feel like I have to break the bank and buy some esoteric wood to get great smoke.

provides great flavor
Flavorful
September 21, 2016
Bought these wood chips in different woods and flavors for my new smoker and I have to say that they worked out pretty well. I believe that they were add-on items and were at a good price. They were easy to use and burned completely and steadily. Adds a lot of flavor to the taste of the meat and I will be buying more in the future.
Need to give apple a try
May 6, 2016
This was purchased as part of an add on deal through amazon. I have to say i was really happy with the wood. I had never smoked with apple wood before and I really liked the taste/ I do not know if it is brand specific as i have continued to use Weber but I can tell you i use apple wood a lot more than i did before. I tried to use some natural apple one time and it was not quite as sweet i think it was due to the bark so for me its not worth the trouble of taking the bark off, just to easy to buy the chips.
Little large for electric smokers
April 11, 2016
these are a little large for my electric smoker. not all chips are large, but definitely could be smaller chips. I think these are more designed for those who use a propane smoker instead, they still work but not all chips get fully smoked, some only 1/2 way. Either way was a deal for the price, as it was an add on pricing, so can't complain too much. My fish that I am smoking with these tastes awesome!
Great With Charcoal, Okay With Propane
August 26, 2015
Have only used on pork (roast, ribs and chops) but the flavor is great. Compliments every time. My only complaint is that when used in a smoke box or in foil in a propane grill they don't seem to give off a lot of smoke. Instead what I've done is only used them in my charcoal grill and placed them directly on top of the hot coals. When added directly to the coals they burn great giving off a lot of smoke. If you are going to use with a gas grill or smoker and not burn the chips directly, you may not get as much smoke as you want.

Eventually i cooked the brisket in my oven and let the smoker cool down.
October 10, 2015
I have had this for three years now, the biggest problem i see people having is this unit is not capable of prolonged temps of 250 degrees. It causes malfunctions in the control module and will probably cause the unit to fail. Even though the manual says it can do 275, i typically wont use it over 225. I tried 250 for a 14 hr brisket, but after 6 hrs it started flaking out. The green led heating indicator flashed on and off, i could hear the element go in and out and the temp displays toggled between the meat probe temp, cab temp and set temp...i unplugged and tried it again over and over. No luck. Eventually i cooked the brisket in my oven and let the smoker cool down. .after about 2 hrs it started working normally again. I have read reviews other than Amazon that confirm the lack of quality, so my advice is to spend a bit more on a mastercraft, make sure you have at least a one year warranty and you should be good.If it completely craps on you, it could still be useful as a cold smoker if you remove the chute door by drilling the two hinge rivets an then purchase a mastercraft smoke generator for 58$ on amazon. I used a 3" alum. Flexible dryer venting attached to a pvc with steel tape that fits to the inside of the cajun injector and the other end fits over the outside of the mastercraft smoke generator. Makes awesome smoked cheese and cold smoked salmon. If your element still works in the cajun injector you can remove the chip tray and set the temp and have all the smoke come from the smoke generator. The benefit of the dryer vent is it helps prevent creosote build up on the food from the smoke. I will try and include a picture of what i did with mine instead of trashing it...
Look for Local buy if you want. UPS will damage in shipping.
December 26, 2013
I would like to include the pictures of one of the rear wheels caved in. Will try to add to product user picks. Straitened it out some with pliers. Quality is so so. The laminate in front of the control panel looks like a roll a coaster. Not very good quality there. I hope it works after clearly being rolled and dropped by UPS. Will have to wait as it is snowing heavy now.

September 22, 2015
I much prefer the Char Broil chips. they are larger than this ground up crap. I guess it is a matter of what you are used to, but when I smoke in my Weber kettle grill, I prefer the larger chips, this mix of 1/4 inch chips and slivers mixed with larger chips burns out too fast even after soaking with water.
Not the greatest in of my smoker.
September 9, 2015
I like apple wood, but if you are serious smoker, I would recommend the chunks over the chips. I went through this entire bag in 5hours. The wood chunks burn much slower. I used a smokenator in my Weber charcoal grill.
Ehh
August 18, 2015
Some of the chips have a dried up yellow wood mold on them. Not really what I want to be smoking.

Initially it worked great! I smoked venison
September 3, 2017
Bought this model at a local store. Usually I am an amazon customer but it was on sale for a bit less than amazon.I had it little over a year.Initially it worked great! I smoked venison, fish, veggies, all kinds of stuff. I probably loaded it ten times over the year.However, I recently harvested a lot of red jalapenos from the garden and was all excited to make some chipotles, but this was not to be.Plugged in and initially it lit up like normal, but kept blowing the breaker when the heat went to cycle (red light on). Tried different outlets and GFCI and not GFCI with the same results. Always stored out of the weather and kept clean.Was great when it worked, but only lasted 11 months. Made in China, so short life cycle was expected just like everything from China, but I figured I'd at least get 2 years out of it with moderate use and good maintenance. Not so. Going to get a Masterbuilt or Bradley next time.
Long time to heat up
July 2, 2017
This smoker takes hours and hours to heat up to 220-225 degrees. I usually have to set it up the night before to begin heating, otherwise it will not "get there" in time on the day I plan to use it. Other than that it does a good job.
The smoker itself works great! However
November 28, 2014
I bought this for my husband for his birthday for a little more than $200-. The smoker itself works great! However, we used it only 3 times and the door ended up coming off the hinges. We tried to fix it, but it no longer will seal shut and the door just keeps falling or blowing off -- which is an extreme hazard!. Tried to see if we could exchange it but we're past the time limit -- didn't even have it for 6 months before we could no longer use it!
nonfunctional in a month
March 28, 2013
I really wanted to like this smoker, but I didn't get to use it very much. The unit started tripping the circuit breaker about every 10 minutes (used the same outlet the previous successful attempts). Might be I just got a bad unit, but I didn't want to try the same model again. On a positive note: since it died so soon, Amazon covered shipping the defective unit back.

These did not work for me, they were too small and burned to quickly, causing me to have to replace to frequently to keep smoke. I recommend the larger chunks.

More like shavings, not chips
July 19, 2015
This is a good quality wood, though there are a few bark chips throughout. However, being advertised as chips a large majority of them are actually more like shavings--very small pieces 1/4 inch in diameter or less. Not very useful for smoking, as they burn up in a few seconds and only produce a tiny bit of smoke. I also purchased the bag of hickory chips and they are much more uniform in size, with the majority being about one inch in size.
there was a faint odor like napthalene (moth balls)
June 28, 2015
As these heated up in the grill, there was a faint odor like napthalene (moth balls). I've cooked three times with these and cannot taste any mesquite flavor in the slightest. Waste of time and money.

AVOID IT LIKE IT WAS A ZOMBIE!
April 5, 2015
Received as a gift just over a year ago. Only used it about 15 times. Mostly ribs (4 hours) and pork butts (9 hours). The second to last smoke session we noticed the temperatue readings were 20 to 30 degs lower than the entered temp. The last one we compensated for the difference and it died. Temperature dropped and just wouldn't hear any more. At $13.33 a session this is a complete rip-off. A 90 day warranty should have been an indicator of the quality. It was in this case. I would avoid this one and spend a little more for better quality if you plan to do a decent amount of smoking.
DON't BUY!!!
March 2, 2015
Purchased this smoker at a local sporting goods store after a recommendation from the most-uninformed salesman ever. I'm usually pretty good about reviewing and carefully weighing my purchase options. For some unknown reason my judgment was lacking and I was attacked by an impulse purchase. I made do with this smoker for 1.5 years until it crapped out.Pros:1. The smoker is reasonably insulated2. meat probe is a nice feature3. nice rack configuration/jerky racks and water/drip pan placementCons:4. The temperature readout warped and bubbled away from the smoker on the first use5. Temperature readout is unreadable in any light condition other than pure darkness6. Chip tray is too small7. Access opening to add chips is too small and a poor design (Masterbuilt's is way more user friendly and functional)8. Inconsistent temperature readings and temperature control. (impossible to keep a constant temperature) Chips flare up and burn out quickly even when soaked for hours on end causing temperature spikes and rapid drops.)9. Constant attention, because of #710. Cheaply made electronic components that fail after a short time use. ( mine started tripping my GFCI and would no longer function)11. A smoker should last more than 1.5 years.Save your money. If your content on buying a electric smoker get the Masterbuilt or Bradley smoker. http://www.amazon.com/Masterbuilt-Digital-Electric-Smoker-Remote/dp/B00FBCMNZC/ref=sr_1_9?s=lawn-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1425314776&sr=1-9&keywords=masterbuilt+electric+smokerI've now purchased a GMG Daniel Boone pellet smoker. It's much more fun, easier to control and produces great food. It also has it's down sides but over all a better product. My electric smoker did seem to produce a little more smoke profile than my GMG but that has been resolved with the addition of an A-Maze-N smoke tube also available from Amazon.Electric smokers are awfully handy when they work properly, they can be more work because they don't often smoke long enough with one dose of chips. Most will require new chips ever 30 minutes to one hour.Don't waste money on this junk.Purchased this smoker
Didn't last long
June 13, 2014
When I first got the smoker I absolutely loved it. The probe quit working in a month. Because I bought it on Amazon instead of a sporting goods store, there was nothing the company could do for me. No big. I bought a digital probe and was good to go. Now, less than a year after purchase, there's a short somewhere and I get voltage pretty much everywhere on the smoker. And, because I'm a smoker addict, I actually smoked a batch of bacon even though I was getting shocked. Because the back is riveted on, there is no way to get into to see what's going on without tearing it apart. Oh, and I'm not an electrician. So, sadly, I cannot recommend this smoker and will be ordering a different brand in hopes it lasts longer.
