Ran across the site when I was looking for reviews on the MES I saw at Sam's club. All the reviews @ SAMS web site were very positive and read about 120 reviews on cabelas and only saw 4 bad reviews. Bought one Tuesday at Sams and have been seasoning in for a couple of hours this week. Going to try ribs tomorrow on it. What is every ones option of the MES. I smoke every Saturday during college footbal season and got tired of running out to check temps and wood all the time and missing parts of the game. I hope this MES works as good as the reviews turn it on and walk away. Also does any one have a good recomedation on a good thermometer to buy. The ones I get @ Wally World blow. Great site! Glad I found it. ROLL TIDE!
