    Looking into building a stand for my 40 MES. I don't want the one masterbuilt has out because it provides no storage and can't be moved around. I have zero metal working skills so it will have to be made out of wood. Anyone built one or have any ideas?

    Anything you build would be fine, as long as it's strong enough.

    When I used to Chainsaw carve Bears, I had built 4 boxes 2' X 2', by one foot high, with pressure treated 2 X 12s. I used them to get small carvings up higher, for my back.

    Now I stacked two of them under my MES 40. No storage, but I wouldn't want to bend down that low anyway.

    Thinking of doing a stand with sides and storage in the side. Kind like an entertainment cabinet for a TV.

    That sounds Great !!!

    At 6' 3", I found the best height for the MES 40 would be 2' to the bottom of the smoker.

    Cool Idea, Moses!!

  5. I need to build a stand for mine.Looking forward to seeing your build.

    Happy smoken.
