    Hello,

    Thinking of getting this to unit for smoking sausage.  Wondering how those who have it like it for this purpose? 

    $288.15 online right now, hard to pass on.  Was also wondering what the temp range in on this unit?  The manual says max is 275, whats the lowest temp?  Don't see it on the manual.  Thanks!

    Bah, not sure how I missed it but I found it on their site 100-275 degrees.  Just pulled the trigger.  Called Hayley at MB and they still have them for $200 plus shipping.  Saved $33.15  .

    Isn`t Hayley a real treat to work with at Masterbuilt??? I am glad to see they still have some of the $200.00 units still available. Mine is working great and getting ready for another load of Salami and Snack Sticks this nest week.

    Thinking of calling and seeing if they have any of these left.

    I take it you just call the customer service number? And ask for Haley.

    She has a direct number but I got her when I called the main toll free number the first time. She is a pleasure to work with and I hope they still have a few left. I just smoked two big whole Salmon Fillets using the AMNPS with Alder Dust and they made some really great Lox. This combination is perfect for cold smoking and then I use the heat to make my snack sticks and Salami. When the Pork prices come down If ever I will be back into the BBB and the Canadian Bacon. The control you have with this simple unit is great for all the products and AMNPS makes it a trouble free smoke. On this one I lit the Alder Dust and got a three hour burn with just one row of dust. The Alder burned completely and the smoke flavor for the Salmon was perfect.

    Well, I just ordered mine. Did not get to speak with Haley, but did talk with Tiffany who was very helpful.

    They only have a couple units left with slight cosmetic damage (scratch/dent) that will not effect the operation.
    $206 and that included the shipping :)

    Now to wait.

    Already have an AMNPS so all I need is a mailbox.

    My new MES40 Gen 1 showed up on Friday.

    Very small dent in the bottom corner at the rear. Overall in great condition, can't wait to fire it up. For $206.00 I can't complain.

    Question on the mailbox mod, do you remove the inards where the wood chip tube slides in?

    So sad, I haven't even un-boxed my MES 40  [​IMG]

    Putting together hopefully today or tomorrow!

    Finally unboxed the new MES40. Had the very very smallest of a dent in the top front, didn't even notice it at first. Put it all together and cleaned it up. Also ordered the Hickory Square cover for it. Time hasn't been on my side to use this yet and coming weekend will be out of town again :(

    It's killing me not to get this thing up and running.
