    So I bought this smoker on Craig's List and the model is no longer being made.  I took it home and it worked great on some Butts, however overnight the smoker got some rain on it.  When I pulled the Butts out it was registering 300 degrees.  I shut it off (BIG MISTAKE) and can't get it to do anything except the blue power light flashes on the display panel.  I don't think I blew a fuse as the power light comes on and flashes, but don't know where to go from here.  I have searched online and found the manual once, but can't locate it again.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Do you have a model number? 
     
  3. I have one of those and after some reading different places i'm anal about bringing it inside my covered porch on when rain is in the forecast. Had 3 smokes so far, butt and ribs, no problems. Hope you get it straightened out.
     
  4. Actually looking at it better mine is not the same model, a little different.

    Anytime electronics get wet make sure to dry them completely before attempting to re-energize them. 
     
  6. Every time I smoke with my MES, I put two patio chairs beside it, one on either side,  About a foot to 18 inches from the smoker.  I then drape a plastic tarp over the chairs and use something to weigh down the tarp, so it will not blow away.  The chairs keep the tarp off of the smoker and suspend the tarp several inches above the smoker.  Drapes down both sides.  Rain cannot get to anything, easy to lift up and get at the smoker when needed. 

    Like other posters say, if the controls get wet, let it dry completely before applying hydro again; doing otherwise will probably fry the electronics and give you one useless smoker box.  Leave it in a garage or shed, out of the rain, for about a week, before trying anything.
