Hi all, looking to get an electric smoker to go with my Big Green Egg. I find the MES to be a good candidate since you can use any wood source....right? That is I can use pellets, chips or chunks? What is the lowest, out of the box, temperature the 40" MES can keep and can I use it to dehydrate and smoke veggies? I'm asking this as an out of the box unit, no modding or other changes or extra purchases. Thanks for any info!
