    I just got the MES40 out to smoke some PP for the 4th and when I added the apple chips to the drawer they would not burn. I microwaved them for 3 minutes on high to no avail. The smoker temp went to 225 OK but the wood "cooker" part of the unit doesn't seem to be working. Last year all was OAK.

    Thanx Don

    Did you remember to clean the chip tray after your last use?

    Check to see if the chip tray is inserted properly.... down on the heating element.... sounds like it is raised above the element...
