I'm now 4 smokes into my new MES 40 and I am extremely happy. I definitely plan on ordering an AMNS to top it off. I do have one question about my drain. It sure appears to me that it is sloped up out the back of the smoker. I have never had anything drain into the drip pan on the back, but then again there hasn't been much make it past the water pan. Does this picture look normal?
