New MES Bluetooth Digital smoker

  1. kelly3700,

    Thinking about getting one of the 40's. Would like to hear what you think about the new bluetooth model along with some picks. Thanks
     
  2. I am very interested to see more about this, seriously thinking of getting one. The only problem is trying to find one in Ontario Canada, I will try contacting Bass Pro to see if they have one. We can't check here for anything online there, it links us to the American site and if you order anything it comes from the States, so taxes, shipping and border brokerage fees and our dollar, It would probably be about $650 -$700 for a 30" by the time I got it.

    Still being new here, if anyone has any Ontario, or Canadian shopping tips please let me know, it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Well it's here and I put it to work the MES Bluetooth Digital smoker 40".

    I did the pull pork and the Mac and cheese. Everything went ok and the results was great.  One small improvement I love on the system is the light.  It's not on the inside, it's is located on the outside.

    Since you can not see anything in the window when smoking, but at night when I pull the Butt out of the smoke from a 15 - 16 hour day. When I open the door with the light on you can see clearing inside the smoker, it's very bright. (Love it)!

     I used Jeff's Naked Rub, for the first time.

    I really love the taste.

    I am very satisfied with the built of the smoker.  The Bluetooth worked great without any problems.

    Thanks Htown!!------Nice Butt too![​IMG]

    It's about time somebody got one.

    I'll be interested in finding out how even the heat is inside from left to right & on different grill positions.

    I like the idea of the light on the outside too. I can see through my glass, but the light inside isn't too bright & hard to keep clean.

    I just bought a Blue Tooth 30 inch from Bass Pro yesterday and have yet to set it up and use it.  When I do, I'll report back.  The 40 inch was available for $100 more but I decided on the 30 inch because it's just my wife and myself.  I'm not feeding a family anymore.  Just an occasional visit from the kids or a small party.  I'm hoping the 30 inch has all the bells and whistles of the 40 inch, just a bit smaller.  We'll see.  I like the idea of stainless steel.  I hope it has it inside primarily. I've got a smart phone so I like the idea of being somewhere else and checking on the temps of my smoke regardless where I am.  It's all new, and I'm pumped.  This will be my first smoker.  My nephew had a Gen 1, black and simple and it worked great.  Before he introduced me to it, I had always tried to smoke meat on the BBQ with mixed results.

    If you can exchange the 30" for the 40" I would do it. I have the 30" and cook for just my wife and I and I regret not getting the 40". It isn't the overall capacity that I need but the extra width. I can do plenty of food on the 30" but when I try a wide cut like ribs or a brisket I have to cut it down to fit. 

    If being limited on width doesn't matter to you then by all means stick with the 30". Either way I'm sure you will be happy with the MES. Good luck and lets us know how the bluetooth unit works.

    I agree with bmaddox about the extra width of the 40 inch coming in handy even if you're only cooking for two people. I have the MES 30 Gen 1 and my only quibble is that when I put pork ribs or brisket on a rack the meat touches both walls until it shrinks during the smoking process. However, the MES 30 was right in my price range and my first smoker so that's why I chose it.

    If and when my MES 30 goes south forever I would seriously think about the MES 40 Bluetooth model, although I have no use for the Bluetooth feature.
