    Since Mrs. J decided to get me a MES 40 for Christmas I guess I will hang around this group for awhile. I'm looking forward to playing with this new toy real soon. Right off I see I have to contact Masterbuilt for the replacement chip box and loader as this unit has the small chip pan...JJ

    CONGRATS JIMMY!

    After you season your New MES 40, check the accuracy of your display, and temp probe.

    My MES 40's all vary from 10° off to 25° off, and all run HOT!

    Good luck on your Rib Roast!

    I'm thinking of upgrading to the 40 so I can have more room for ribs..Let me know your input on yours when you get a feel for it.

    Hope your roast came out fine, I'm sure it did though.
     
  8. Hoity.. get it and don't think twice!

    I bought a used one and love it. A buddy of mine here on the dock liked it so much he went and bought one at sames. His runs constantly every weekend!
