I found this forum doing a search. I just got a MES from Sams that I've been eying for a year now. I've been smoking on my Jenn Air 3 burner, with several mods, for 4yrs now with great results. But always wanted an electric for less tending and lower heat, my Jenny is hard to get below 300deg during a long smoke. I'm not new to outdoor cooking. I've grilled, bbq'd, and smoked most every critter that swims, crawls, flies, or walks in the southeast (that is legal to that is). Got 2 butts rubbed and ready for the smoker this evening. Also have 2 chicks on the Jenny rotis now.
