Right now I have a Char-broil smoker roaster that works really good but I'm not happy with the shape of the cooking area and want to get a better one. Right now my smoker has round cooking basket that can cook only two ten pound pork butts at a time. I would love to have a smoker with a large cooking area and has a bunch of racks so I can cook a wide range of meats. My charbroil doesn't have the ability of letting me cook ribs the way most people would laying down and doing the 3-2-1 method. I have to hang them from the basket. Also what is the normal range for smoking meats. I've read a little bit about the MES and it looks like it can go as low as 100 degrees and only goes as high as 275.
