    I am looking at a MES (20070411). I can get it for free due to some points I have earned.

    My question is, is this a good model? I hear get gen#1 not gen #2.

    I don't go by the serial number any longer--- I Can't keep track of all of them.

    The one you want (Gen #1) has the digital controls in a slanted box that fits on the back of the top.

    The one you don't want (Gen #2) has the controls built into the top of the front, above the door.

    There are many other differences, but that's the easiest way to recognize it on sight.

    It is a 30 inch Gen 1 with a glass door.

    You should be in good shape with that one.

    The only other things you should have to make your smoking Perfect would be a Digital wireless therm, like a Maverick ET-732, and an AMNPS for smoke.

    Then you can set the temp where you want, fill up & light the AMNPS, and sit back and relax, while you get up to 12 hours of perfect smoke without touching it. A smoking match made in heaven.
