Before the Masterbuilt 560, I had been using a pellet smoker for about 4 years. Prior to my pellet smoker, I was using an offset. I went to a pellet smoker due to the ease of set and forget. One thing about using the pellet smoker for the past 4 years is that it was always lacking in smoke flavor. I did all the mods and add ons to get a stronger smoke flavor but could never get that familiar smoke flavor from the offset.
Now for the MB560. When I saw this announced I immediately knew I needed this grill. The fact that I could cook with charcoal and throw in large chunks of wood in the hopper and ash pan, I knew I would get a better smoke flavor off of this grill.
I got this grill delivered the day before Christmas. Put the grill together immediately and did the burn off. Tri-Tip steaks were the first thing I cooked on this. I reverse seared the steaks. Smoked them for about 45 minutes at 200 then bumped up the grill to 700 to sear the steaks. This is where the awesomeness of this grill comes in. With the grill already running at 200, for me to get to 700 took less than 5 minutes. I have to take the steaks off during this time so I can get that good sear on them. I mention this because with my pellet grill, the time to get to 500 (this is the hottest it gets) from 200 would take 20 minutes. The fact that I was at 700 in 5 minutes was amazing. The amount of smoke flavor that was on these steaks was awesome. I had thrown in some hickory chunks in the ash pan during the smoking process. The mixture of the charcoal flavor from the Oak Lump charcoal and Hickory tasted great on the steaks.
I have done ribs and pork butt as well and they have come out with better flavor than anything that ever came off my pellet grill. The versatility of this grill is awesome. To have a true smoker and a true grill all in one is amazing. I have had this for about a month now and haven’t touched any of my other grills since I got the MB560. I would definitely recommend this grill!

Iâve been on the fence about getting a new smoker. I know I wanted temperature control but that limits your options to few. pellet, thermo-temp propane, or convert a kettle using a fan and controller. To me this was win/win. All the other options have shortcomings that this unit addresses. Propane is flavor. Pellet , flavor and heat.
1) Temperature control. Unit comes up to temp fast and maintains very well. I have done low and slow (225) as well as (700) for searing ribeyes. Fan is variable speed. Not just on/off witch is nice.
2) cooking chamber is double wall. Iâve already added an additional rack. Lots of nice touches, like a rubber grommet on the side to run your probes thru. Provisions for a future rotisserie. Grates have a smoke/sear side.
3) App is a little quirky but very helpful. I ran several errands during my cook without worry as I can just check the status of the pit temperature and the meat remotely.
4) I have been smoking for 20+ and after three cooks my overall impression is very good. Lots of value for the money. The main reason I bought this is for the same reason Iâve looked at pellets grills for years. Convenience. Doing a 15 hour smoke overnight or babysitting the smoker all day is not very convenient. I have used multiple smokers over the years. Electric, Gas, Pellet, charcoal. The best flavors all seem to come from charcoal and wood. My old Weber kettle and slow-n-sear can produce some really good BBQ.
So, is this better? Yes and no. Convenience , temp control, high heat, connectivity. itâs amazing.
Flavor. No. I know how to make good BBQ. Iâve got years of experience. But, for someone with less experience, this things a slam dunk. It allows you to cook at a high level right out of the box. If youâve been looking at a pellet grill , Iâd say you are much better off with this. Way more versatile and better real BBQ flavor.

I really love be the design of this grill and how it uses charcoal. However it has the softest lightest metal body in a grill I have ever seen. The box was received with a large portion bent. However, the metal is so soft and maleable that I was able to place the whole grill on a stair’ step and fix it using my weight. Also the interior walls and the fire box (manifold) started rusting within a week even though I did the seasoning correctly. I am Texas and living on a third floor. I don’t think this will last long…
Temperature control is great btw. However, due to the super thin body it looses a lot of energy and ends up costing you a lot of coal.. also the grate on which the charcoal falls is extremely wide. So it wastes a humongous amount of charcoal. I had to mod it using a wire hanger.
I really wish this was made by Weber. I would have loved it. Instead Weber made that terribly designed smokefire….
Please get this smoker/grill!!!! Iâve smoked with pellet, charcoal, and electric. I love this thing. Gives you the charcoal smokey flavor but you donât have to sit around all day tending the smoker because the digitally controlled fan regulates the temperature for you. It connects to WiFi and Bluetooth. Temperature range that lets you smoke delicate foods or sear a amazing steak. I donât work for Masterbuilt, Iâm just a happy customer that bought this amazing grill.
Love my Masterbuilt Gravity 560. All the flavor of my Weber Smokey Mountain, but the simplicity of a pellet grill. Goes from 150Â°-700Â° so you can smoke/grill/sear with it. Heats quick. Super even temp across the grates. Rock solid on holding temps. App is awesome (although I have an iPhone – Iâve heard itâs less than stellar on Android). Masterbuilt has excellent customer service if you need it. And the price. Honestly, itâs a game changer at $750+, let alone $500.
