about us

Built on tradition

Over 45 years of history.

Since 1973, Masterbuilt has worked tirelessly to innovate products that make food, and the smoking experience, better.

We think smoking food should be fun. That you should feel free to experiment with different wood flavours, seasonings, recipes, and techniques.

That’s why our products are built to help you easily perfect slow-cooked ribs and succulent chicken, intensely flavourful brisket and juicy pork shoulder. We hope you’ll find our tools help you create not only signature dishes that boast better, smokier flavour—but family traditions that will be passed down for generations to come.
