    Has anyone found an appropriate cover for this new smoker yet?

    I was contemplating something like this :



    I don't want to wheel it inside regularly, so would like something heavy duty.

    That one looks like it would possibly fit the MES 30, but not the MES 40.

    I think that's the one I've heard is quite strong.

    I would double check the measurements of your smoker & any cover you buy.

    I have the regular black one that's made for my MES 40. It works great for my use, but no way would I put it out in direct weather contact.

  6. I just got that one (Hickory), and although it's a great heavy duty cover, it will not fit my new MES 40" Bluetooth. It's just a little to small to fit over the top of the unit and would be impossible to get over the handling bar at the back. I'm returning it and going to Home depot tomorrow (Sunday PM) to see what they might have in the way of a good quality weatherproof cover. I'll post if I find something worthwhile that is water and weatherproof. I'm in S. Florida and my unit is somewhat protected from direct weather, but I still need to have something rain-proof.

    Thanks, Bearcarver & Five String.  I'm puzzled by the amazon comments that indicate people have made it fit, but perhaps the new model is slightly wider. With the older models, I guess people removed the handle (or turned it 180 degrees), but I guess even that won't work well here.

    I'll keep digging to see if I can find something that works well and let you know if I'm successful.

    I removed my handle from my MES 40 Gen #1, so I wouldn't have to fight with the Stock Masterbuilt cover to get it on, but I don't ever move mine around, so I don't need the handle. Plus like I said above, I wouldn't trust the Masterbuilt "Thin" cover out from under roof in serious weather.

  9. Re: cover for the 40 in MES 2.5 Bluetooth smoker, I purchased from Amazon the a"Classis Accessories Veranda Stackable Chairs Cover #78972" and it fits over everything, including the handle. See attached.

    Hey Dennis,

    Will that one hold up in a blowing rain storm??

    If so, this is what those guys need who have to leave theirs out in all kinds of weather!!!

    Thanks for posting.

  11. I found one at Home Depot called "GrillPartsPro". The only dimension on the box says it "Fits grills up to 22.5" wide". No model or part number on box. It has plenty of room for the 40" MES Bluetooth. Length falls right at the bottom of the box, leaving some of the legs exposed. Quality is mid-range with a rubberized inner liner; it's not real heavy duty, but it's not flimsy either. Cost $ 20.00. It should be rain repellant which is what I need here.

    Are the stock covers any good?  This is the MB 40 inch cover.

    For the guys that own the Cabelas model - is the cover that's included a stock Masterbuilt one, or is it a different one?  If the later, how is the quality?  Is it durable & waterproof?

  15. My cabelas cover has Masterbuilt on it. Wouldn't use it for outdoor protection.

    Great, thanks.  Just what I wanted to know.

    I know Bear's son had something similar, but do you guys think this can work?

    According to Amazon's Q&A, internal dimensions are 47.5" x 25" x 41.   Does anyone know the exact dimensions of the Sam's model, without the legs?  The Cabelas one is 40.1"H x 19.7"W x 25.6"D.

    It looks like the depth is 0.6 inches too short (if the data is accurate) ???????  Do you think it could squeeze in?  BTW - I'm looking into all options including building a patio extension which would solve my space issues for an MES.  My quest continues.

    Exactly, That's the kind I have. Ones faded to gray. I like them, but I wouldn't use them out in the Direct Weather.

    Mine just gets Winter Sun & light blown in rain & snow.

    I think you might have that Depth wrong. That 25.6" is probably the width, and the 19.7 would be the depth.

    Ahhhhh.  I copied the dimensions right off the Cabelas website.  Seems like they are incorrect.  If so, then this shed would work perfectly :)))))))  The height wont offer much clearance though.  Looking at the pics, it seems the roof is angled.  I dont know if the 41" internal dimension height is at the back of the front?  If the front, then this baby would be perfect.  Anyone have one of these?
