MES 30

Discussion in 'Electric Smokers' started by smokingmymeat, Apr 20, 2011.

  1. Going to buy this one today. My question is Good, Bad, Other. I live at 9000ft.

    It's a lot of work using my horizontal. It's hard to plan ahead, you never know

    what the day you plan to smoke will be. Last winter I had to alter my smoke

    a couple of days. Keeping the heat up is real tough when it's warm. Yes,

    I'm a rookie that's still learning. So electric seems the way to go. I learnded that here thank you. This one

    seems like a good choice. Any help from you all would be great!

    MES is a great smoker, if you can afford the 40", that's what I would get.

  4. thanks guys, I'm heading home tommorrow from a fishing trip on the texas coast and the 30

    is across the street and a 40 is about 45 min. away, wife doesn't eat meat, and I'm

    cleaning camper/boat so I hope that the 30 will work out. Otherwise I would take your advise Al.

    thanks again

  7. Excellent choice! I put wheels on mine and added a tile to the rt rear above the chip box like some of the others here had done and I love it! Check out the MES forums for helpful tips, suggestions and the great advice members have posted on SMF. Just reading them helped me out a bunch and I can use all the help I can get....[​IMG]

    I loved my MES 30 for a whole year, but then it shrank, and I had to get the MES 40.

    Hopefully that won't happen to yours.

    I think it's the Pork Fat that made it shrink, so you might want to keep pork fat away from it.   [​IMG]

  11. Just got back from Lowes, and my $200 bucks have gone "UP IN SMOKE". {HAR...HAR...HAR}   Sorry, couldn't help it. Picked up some

    Cowboy lump charcoal to take home for my SFB's. I've been reading about it here at SMF. Hope this will help me some. I haven't got squadueche where

    I live. I'll be checking out your pics FPNMF. Thanks for the support guys. Are you all ready for the next question?
