    Got a "leaked" catalog today. They will have a Gen1 MES Black 30" for $149.99, #8438921. If you have a free ACE Rewards card, they knock off another $20, for a total of $129.99. Includes cover, rib rack, and sausage rack. Limit 2. Sale starts 11/25 thru 11/29.

    Heck, that's low enough to make a good Christmas present, if you know someone who's interested.

    We have an ACE Hardware in town but I've never seen an MES on the floor, but it's a small store. What a great deal!

    I've never seen one at my ACE, either. Must be something new. They did have a Smoke Hollow about the same size, last summer.

    Me to!  I have two different privately owned Ace Hardware stores locally with no MES's on the floor.  Their 20/lb.@ $20.00 bags of Traeger pellets go on sale for $14.00 periodically.  It's 2/3rds White Oak and 1/3rd the flavor on the bag.  I like their Pecan and it's the only one I've tried outside of Todd's.    Todd's Garlic Spice pellets are in a White Oak medium which I'll use on a Chuckie this weekend.

  5. Dr K, I am with you on the white oak. It is a clean hard wood and smokes well. When I could cut wood it was my choice of fire wood and consequently my choice for my stick burner. Hickory was not on the property but red oak was. Boy that stuff was strong when splitting it. It smelled so bad most folks would not even think of smoking meat with it. In reality it does smoke ok.  Jted
     
  6. Their website shows the gen 1 and gen 2 models. The gen 2 is cheaper by 30 bucks and comes with the accesories listed above. I'm going to ace here in a little to see if they have any in stock and which one they actually carry.

    You know I'm loyal to Todd but I would hope that Traeger pellets would be 100% wood of the type shown on the bag. I haven't researched them.

    Sale starts today.

    I also see that Cabela's will have the same smoker on Black Friday for $139.99, but this one will include the cover.

    Yup. Should have looked at my first post.

    At that price, if it is a genuine generation 1, would be a good time to pick up a spare.

    I just scrolled up to your post. I had completely forgotten about it tho I did respond to it. I tend to reply to newer posts since I got emailed notifications about those and forget about the original post and my early replies. .

    I meant me. I had forgotten what I wrote. Sorry for the confusion.

    Damn... I completely missed the fact that the sale staryed already yesterday. Oh well... If I can't find one from the local Ace, I guess I'll go with the $139 one from Cabela's. That also comes with the cover and I don't really care that much about the rib/sausage racks.

    You spend enough time in these forums and confusion becomes a side effect. I thought you'd meant me and I was agreeing with you since your thread starter did mention the accessories included.
