    Just got mine for a Valentine's Day gift. 30" with window and digital display? Only had time to season it today. Tomorrow I'll throw some brats, wings, and beans in there. I'll double check the temps with a remote thermometer.

  5. I received mine last Christmas from my parents in the states.  It started out good but not as good as I wanted.  Since I live in okinawa I had to get a transformer for the unit since the voltage over here never got the temps where I wanted them.  Second problem I have run into was the smoke quantity.  I had to buy a 5x8 Amazin smoker to supplement.  Now I have to figure out how to get a decent bark on my brisket.  I have tried every method out there but still cant get what I want.

    I'm a newbie.  Just bought my first smoker - MES 30 at Lowes.  Am looking forward to my 1st smokin'!  Any suggestions as to what type of meat a newbie should try?

  8. Good, you keep it.

    Mine is going back tomorrow for a CASH refund.

    I did a whole chicken to inaugurate mine. First, because I like chicken, and second, it will splatter and help season the inside walls.

  10. I've had an MES 40 for over a year and I love it. It's fool proof. Excellent first smoker.

    Bought the 40" w/window yesterday at Costco...cured it and will be doing my first batch of ribs today.  I have a Weber Smoky Mountain Bullet that I have used for years..going to try this out since my time is limited and I just can't keep stopping what I am doing to go check on the smoker all day.
  12. Love it

    I got mine as a gift from my boss. He and his wife bought one and liked it so much, they bought 50 of them and gave them to us! I love it. It is like the Ron Popeil Showtime rotisserie of smokers! Set it and forget it! (for the most part)

    We bought our MES several months ago but just began using it. We had our old bullet smoker down to a science, had to get over the learning curve with this one. Now that we've been using it we really like it. Bought it at Gander Mountain, impulse shopping. Gotta watch that place!

    I put one on my wedding registry. didnt think anyone would bite. Now I'll have it in my possession tonight! Can't wait to break it in and smoke some ribs and shoulder! It's the old-gen 40 with window.

  19. Got mine about 2 months ago, so far the oly drawback I have seen was that it is so low to the ground.  Fixed that by getting the masterbuilt smoker stand.  Raises it 16" and makes it much easier to use.

    Been smoking alot of ribs, and jerky since I got it.  So much better than my old Brinkman Electric. 
  20. I have had mine about a year.  I have the MES 30.  I have nothing but good things to say.  Once I bought the AMPS it added a completely new dimension with its extra smoke and cold smoking capabilities.  will handle most anything that I want for the time being.  I am sure that as my boys age and I need more meat in there I may look to upgrade at some point.  For the time being the MES 30 has done everyhting that I could have asked for.  I definitely recomend it.
