Just acquired a MES 40 Gen 1, and have seen the many comments about insufficient smoke. When seasoning it last night, I thought the amount of smoke when running at 275° was perfect. I used the side loader with the prescribed amount of chips. My problem is that amount of chips only produces smoke for 20-30 minutes. My whole purpose in ditching wood and propane units was to find one I can leave unattended for hours, not minutes. I have also seen the generally favorable reviews of the Amazen products, but have also noted issues with keeping them lit, and even a couple of complaints about too much smoke from them. So, I'm considering using the Masterbuilt cold smoke unit. Can anyone tell me if it would supply approximately the same amount of smoke as I had last night when using only the standard MES 40 arrangement? And, is there any adjustment available with it? I simply do not want too much smoke, but do want a supply that will last several hours. Thanks for any and all advice.
