Hey guys! It's been a while since I've been on the site. Been busy and working out of town a lot so I haven't had a lot of time to smoke. Anyway here's the deal a few weeks ago I bought a mes 30" and got it home and seasoned it and did a fatty to try it out. I was real happy with the smoke ( compared to my other electric). But quickly realized the smokers temps were way off and I mean way off, like 100 degree swings. smoker was either way too hot or too cold. I called masterbuilt and they said it was likely a control panel problem. Anyway I returned it to gander mountain and they gave me a new one( actually wife did). I haven't opened it yet and i am thinking about upgrading to the 40" model with window and remote, for the extra 150. It just looks so much bigger and i like the stainless. Thoughts and opinions between the two would be appreciated.
