    Does anyone here have a Masterbuilt 560 or 1050? I ordered the 1050 this past week, it's on backorder, not sure when it'll come in..... I did a bunch of research before I decided to order, and still reading and watching as much as I can on it. Im used to cooking on a weber performer, so I'm looking forward to getting it in my hands and making the most out of the extra capacity and burn times.

    I’m looking at the 1050 as well, a lot cheaper than the Rec Tec Pellet grill I was looking at.
    Amazing Ribs. Com did a in depth review of the 560 and gave it good reviews.
    Looks like the 1050 will be a winner...

    There's quite a few vids on you tube, most everything I've see on both of them has been positive. Few issues with wifi/bluetooth of controller and a few questions on the thermometers, but overall good. Even Kosmos has some vids cooking with them.

    I saw the 560 first, way too small for what I wanted. Cabelas had a damaged 1050 in the back, guy pulled it out so I could put my hands on it and compare. Would have liked for the 1050 to have been a bit bigger, but Im not sure why, I'm not feeding a football team.
