Masterbuilt Unleashes Culinary Innovation with New Connected Grills and Smokers for 2024

An open AutoIgnite 545 sits on a paved patio near a lake. Husk-on corn on the cob roasts on the warming rack while racks of ribs grill on the main cooking grate.

Masterbuilt will introduce several new highly connected and extra durable grill and smoker models at the 2024 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, January 9 - 12 (Booth #50819 in Venetian Expo Hall A, Level 2), and roll out to retailers nationally early next spring.

Consumer input drove many of the updates and new models with a special focus on more durable construction materials, greater digital connected technology and automatic fire starting, providing home cooks precise and hardworking grills with greater ease of use that still deliver that distinct charcoal flamed-grilled taste with every cook.

"Our Gravity Series grills have always been the leaders in digital charcoal cooking since the launch of the series in 2019 and through continuous improvement, we've enhanced them with stronger, more rugged designs with several new Masterbuilt models for 2024," said Cara Finger, president of Middleby Outdoors.
