    Other than the obvious 30/40 measurements.... I would like to know if there is any difference between the two the mes30 is more available to me.

    Not sure they may have a different heating element.

    Some of the MES gurus will be along to give you a better answer.

    I had a MES 40 w/window & they're hard to beat.

    I believe I've seen the MES 30 with 500W, 650W, and 800W.

    Not sure about all of the MES 40s, but my MES 40 has a 1200W element, and I love it!

  4. i have owned both, go mes40
     
  5. There are a lot of happy MES30 users on this forum, but I got the all stainless steel MES40 with window because it was so darn good looking. I really did not need the extra capacity of the MES40, but I knew I would enjoy seeing the bigger shiny smoker sitting out on my deck more.
