So I've had my mes40 for a year now and the control panel bubbled up from condensation with some of stress cracks around the front panel. Masterbuilt was cool with their warranty and sent me a control unit fast...other parts on back order. My local Costco has their display model landmann 40" electric for 300 (99 off for it being display model). I'm not coming at the bit for a new smoker. The mes has served me well. But would hate to pass a deal on something that could be better. Thoughts?
