    Welcome and from what I have been reading, you made a good choice. I have an all SS model 0311 as well. Love it!...JJ
  5. Thanks for all the replies,my MES came with the smaller chip tray,I don't think I'll call Masterbuilt for the larger one since I have the AMNPS.

    I went to Bass Pro last week with a friend to buy the MES 40', when we got it back to his house and got it all setup I noticed there is a metal piece spot welded in the chip loader and the wood box.  Why?  Mine does not have this.  I suggested that we cut it out, but he said to leave it. So he will have less smoke and more times out to reload.

    OH Well!

    Too many chips is not good.... 1/4 cup at a time... better food, less fires.... "They" read the forum and made a necessary adjustment to their smoker..... Silly engineers..... we know best....... :laugh1:

    Thank you Dave,

    I'll pass this on to my friend so we do not alter it....I like mine the old way.

    I'll have to get him to join this forum. Great help always.
