        I'm from Asheville area NC in the Summer and Palm City Florida during the real cold time of year

    I have just purchased a MES 40 (2011) from Sam's. Did my first smoke a simple Beer Butt chicken with Apple chips it came out nice.

    Considering the unit topped out at 250 deg, and couldn't reach 165 internal in the chicken in 3 hrs.. Been reading lots on the Forum and mods will be made to unit an Amazing pellet unit is on the way. Masterbuilt said to return unit to Sams get replacement due to unable to reach 275 deg. I checked it with a maverick 732 and another unit I have.

    Doing some BB Ribs now and holding 221-225 deg nicely       GO FIGURE  !!!!

    Great Info on the forums

Just be patient and don't double post it because you don't see it show up right away, someone will get to it! We do this to keep the spammers out and so no one posts anything inappropriate until we get to know them. This only lasts until you make about 20 posts.
