    With so many guys on the fence about buying a MES, maybe this deal from Cabelas + Free Shipping will help

    How do these stack up to a cookshack unit? I have an older smokette, works well, but temp only to 250 and kind of small in side, but have gotten 35# of butts in it with great results.. I have never had any issues with mine, Just curious if I need one of those MES units?

    thanks
     
  5. Oh my...only 4 days? I've just got started smoking, and have really enjoyed the manual method with briqs. But this would simplify my life, but may also put me on the hook for being the go to "smoke guy". Got a friend that smokes so much meat for his friends and family every year, he has a 50 gallon drum style smoker with an offset, that his friends and family went in together to buy him a smoker on wheels with chrome pipes and all. It's absolutely beautiful, but he told me that he's smoked so much meat at biking events he arranges as well as family and friends that he can't stand the smell of smoked meat...I don't want to be like that. lol

    But man oh man this looks tempting. Hmmm, new camera lens or MES...tough call, both hobbies I love...

    Maybe it was there & is now gone?

    I don't see the link either.

    I'm guessing it's about the ALL Stainless MES 40, on sale for $339, but I'm not sure.

    I don't think it the all stainless model. I think it like the one Sam's sells, at least that's what the photo looks like.

    The 5 buck shipping gets  an extra charge for larger items.

    I got my grinder when they had the 5 buck shipping deal. Paid extra..

    It was well worth it to get it on that sale tho..

  18. Nice! Just counted up my lens money, and I can get this. LOL. Hmmm, even if the SAM's club one isn't stainless it's the same thing right? Same thickness walls and stuff? I may stop in at ours and get one. lol. It may make smoking my first butt a lot easier than with having to mess with keeping a fire going for 10 - 16 hours.
     
  19. Like SmokinAl and Bearcarver said above, it looks to me that Cabelas and Sams are selling the same model.

    You know what---The more I think about that, the more I think Cabela's is the ALL Stainless Steel model, even though the picture shows the other one.

    The reason I say this, is when I got mine, their ad showed the black outside MES 40, and My Cabela's had about 50 MES 40s, and they were all Stainless.

    My Son practically lives there, and he said he never sees anything but ALL stainless MES 40 smokers.

    Also, another thing I learned, from when I was looking for one----You can't go by their ad, and you can't go by what they tell you on the phone. 

    The only way you know for sure is to see it in person.

    When I got mine, they had about 50 in the warehouse & the guy on the floor said they didn't have any, and the people at the Sam's club in this area were even worse !!!!

    They had no idea what they had.
