Whats up everybody. Whats up all MES owners. I am thinking about buying a MES. i currently own a 18" WSM that I love. My WSM stays at my lady's place. She has a fantastic yard. My place... Not so much. I am considering the MES because of its apparent easy use ( electric/set and forget qualities ). I live in NYC and the weather has been up and down. Its been everything from cold to warm to wind/rain. I am going to build a shelter for my WSM but have not made the time for it. My lady live a good distance from me. I dont always want to take the drive to do some smoking. So why not have one here. This is where the MES comes in. How does the MES perform in cold weather? How does the MES perform in windy/rainy weather? Are there any other good things about the MES I should know? Any bad things to consider about the MES? Thanks in advance for your input and help.
