My year old MES 30 started on fire last weekend and is completely ruined. It got so hot that it melted the controller, door gaskets and fried the insulation inside of the door. I'm not sure what actually caused the fire but I usually leave the smoker on the edge of the garage slab inside the garage, never again because if I didn't notice this I could have burnt the house down. Don't know if I want another MES after this incident or a different brand. Any thoughts, comments or advice would be greatly appreciated.
