My MES 30 has developed a "short", I touch anything metal and I get zapped, so obviously it needs to be replaced. I called master built and they offered a pretty good deal on a new electric since it's way out of warranty, the discount is about $100 lower than the cheapest price I can find anywhere. Before I take that plunge, my brinkmann charcoal grill has also seen better days, both charcoal trays are rusted out and need attention. So I am up for upgrading both, maybe getting one unit that can do both? I would like to stay with a good charcoal grill, But, I like the idea of pellet grills too, however, don't like the idea of all pellets all the time. Are there pellet grill manufacturers that sell a dual purpose unit with a charcoal tray option? Or an after market charcoal tray for pellet grills? Let me know if there is something out there I should be looking at?
