    Hi yalls,I've been reading here until my eyes hurt trying to decide which mes to get. 

    I know I want a 40 with a glass door. 20070311 looks and sounds good to me.

    the 20070315 looks really good too. I like the 6 racks. my question is I'm trying to see if there's a 40 inch mes 2.5  gen with just the four racks. I see one listed at sams club part number 20070215 and am wondering if its a gen 2.5 hoping anyone knows.
  2. That one for $329 at sams is Gen 2.5. I bought one two weeks ago. I'm quite happy with it.

    This is the one you want and definitely get the $30 three year additional warranty.
  4. Absolutely agree on warranty. Usually don't buy them but this one made sense to me. It is pretty comprehensive

    Well I went to Sams club and brought home the MES 40 with Bluetooth (20070215) f:yahoo:eek:r $329. Had an added bonus I wasn't expecting: it came with the legs and wheels in the box!! It's all put together and waiting for the rain to go away so it can be seasoned. I'll probably smoke some ribs this weekend. Lordy I feel like I won the lottery lol. :yahoo:

    +1 ... I agree on the warranty. I hardley buy a warranty on anything, but did on my BT Gen 2.5 smoker after the problems I have with my 40" Gen 2.0

    I got the MES 40 BT seasoned and ready to go. I got my AMPS ready to go. Hopefully my first smoke Sat or Sun will go smooth. Looks like its gonna be a pork loin, maybe a brisket. I suppose I'm gonna just set the AMPS on the drip tray under the water pan and see how it goes like that, and try some of the suggestions I've read here about air flow if I have any problems keeping it lit. this place is so very informative. I am happy I stumbled upon it.

    You need to elevate the AMPS and pull out your chip loader in the dump position to help with air flow.  Also make sure you have the thing overlit for your virgin run.  I've had a lot of issues lighting mine.

    How high does it need to be? 3 inches? 4?

    The higher the better under the water pan.
