  1. Been looking for an electric is this model any good?  I'm guessing this is a gen 2.  Model # 20070411   I found this one used for 150$
  2. I am not sure which generation it is. However the 1st generation is the better of the 2

    Happy smoken.

    According to Amazon, that one would be a Gen #1 MES 30:

    Is that a remote laying next to the controller? Yep; just checked the MB website.

    I've got the "plain Jane" MES 30 Digital Gen I with no window or remote and I love it. If you're sure the used model you found for $150 is in good shape it might be worth buying since the price for a new one on Amazon is $284.91.  A new barebones MES Digital 30 Gen I (like mine) can be found for anywhere between $135 (or so) to $190.

    Listen, I will make a serious suggestion to you. Before you make up your mind, call Masterbuilt Customer Service

    Its a toll free niumber 800 489 1581.

    Ask them. While your there you may find a better deal or even a better smoke for only a few dollars more. If I could get a new one, with a new guarantee, at or about the same price, you know what I would buy.

    If you like and enjoy smoking and depending upon what you are going to be doing, if you can find a MES40 for only slightly more.... I wish I would have got one first.

    Just my thoughts.

    You may very well need an auxiliary method to generate smoke. You may want to figure that cost into your overall expense. Just Saying.[​IMG]

    I posted that link to show you what smoker the model 20070411 was, to answer your question.

    I in no way was suggesting that was a good price.

  11. I got it. It was brand new for 145

    This is a Gen I and a very good price for it.

    Let us hope that they do something to save their reputation. They need to do something to make up for the disastrous generation 2. You know you have a problem when people are seeking out the older version of your product over you "new and improved" one.
