    Sounds like that little devil went hog wild. LOL...Lucky for you though. Hope the wifey doesn't get hopping mad [​IMG]. If so, she'll settle down once she starts tasting some of the Q you will be serving her. Congrats and smoke on.
  3. This is what I have done thanks to all of the great ideas from this forum.  I by no means thought this up by myself.  The people on here are genius.  I only remove my chip tray and loader and place the elbow into where the loader would go.  It works great for me.

  4. i have a CAJUN INJECTOR which is the same as a Mes 30 " and i got it from Acadamy ,i say its the same but in reality it is a small fridge with a heating element in the bottom . i did have a problem with the wire's burning out to the heating element but after i rewired it it is working like a champ! i just bought my son-in-law the MES 30" and he loves it .

    i do like it alot but after it "dies" i will "up-grade" to a mes 40 !
  5. Well I bought my MES 30" for christmas from Amazon. It sat there waiting to be used like the oh so dirty whore she is. Then finally after Christmas when I got to open it up, assemble, etc - I went to plug it in to heat it up and season. NOPE. It just sat there and did absolutely nothing. Took off the back plate and as an IT technician I recognized the smell of burnt electronics (we call them burnt trons in server room). 

    Called them up - sent in my data plate and power cord. Now I'm waiting for a replacement box. Ugh! All I want to do is get my BBQ on! Either way I'm excited to finally use mine when it arrives.

  6. I have a 40 w/windows and purchased at Sam's Club two years ago.  For me it just works great and it did take me sometime to learn how to smoke with it.  My neighbors also like the smoke smell - as well as their dogs - and I always make sure a few of them get "samples" of the finished product.  I have trouble with brisket, but have nailed the baby back ribs using the 2-2-1 method.  Spring is on its way and time to uncover the MES40 once again. 

    Happy smoking to all.

    I got mine as a Christmas present from my wife. She got it from Qvc. I've smoked a turkey, crab legs, vegetables and a prime rib. All were great.

    Well I like that there are threads like this!
    I am an impulse buyer and reading about what brands work well and what deals are out there really helps me decide if I really need another smoker .
    There are plenty of threads on this site that talk about smoking things!
    I hope you can be an adult and stop whining .

    "Who really cares?"

    Lots of people, that is why there are 24 pages and growing. The MES fits peoples budget; sometimes they work as is, sometimes not and here is where people come in order to get help.  Seems sufficient for most.  I don't own one but I do find the posts interesting and informative.

    snakedoc66....did I tell you about the great deal I got on both my 30" and 40" mes', and how much I like them? And when I want to talk smoking meat, i go to some of the many other forum topics and have at it as an adult, without discussing any personal problems that I may or may not have, that may or may not need fixing. I might reccommend the same coarse for you, but in the meantime, Have a great online experience.....and be uplifting.[​IMG]

    I must agree that these discussions only help and while they may not be direct to smoking stuff, they are critical to get that state.  Besides who does't like solving a puzzle?  I'm happy to take part in helping.

    I have an MES30 analog, given to me for a birthday present by my mother-in-law last year, which she bought from QVC.

    It has certainly increased the number of things and how often I smoke because of the lack of effort in prepping the unit!

    Love it but would never give up my WSM.

  16. I have been through threw body replacements on my 40' MES, after the third went out I cut it up and threw in the trash and built my own out 1950 Frigidaire refrigerator. Best move I ever made.
