    Hey everybody,

    I've been happily using my MES 30 for a few years now for most of my pork butt/shoulder smokes and my only complaint is that I cant do too many at a time. I have an event coming up that will require 8-10 shoulders to be smoked up.

    Can any of you MES 40 owners tell me how many can be smoked at a time and still have room for smoke to circulate around the meat? Maybe this will give me an excuse to treay myself to a new smoker.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the quick reply redneck! I cant tell from the pic but is yours the model with the window in it? If not do you think the dimensions are the same?

    MES 40 with or without the window is the same cooking chamber size.  You should be fine doing 8 shoulders
