Located on the southeast coast. Brand new here. Looking to purchase the MES30 Very soon. I see Walmart has them now for $174, and this is model 20070910. I am assuming this is one of the later models without having to worry about any retro fitting of the pellet loader? I am also planning a purchase of one of the "amazing" smoker boxes from Todd's site. I am learning a bunch from the forums here. A wealth of information, and I know I'll be here often. I'll be anxious to get started smoking meats. Maybe I'll be conversing with some of you. Just wanted to introduce myself, thanks.
