New MES 40 20070211 Owner Questions!

Discussion in 'Electric Smokers' started by coconuts, Sep 3, 2011.

  1. Just purchased the MES 40 at Sam's and was wondering about the retro tray mentioned on the forum for it.

    Is this a model that it is available for? Model number is 20070211.

    Have a 7.5# brisket marinating and a couple of yard birds seasoned, one with Walker's Wood Jerk Seasoning and another with rub.

    Can't wait to get smoking tomorrow!

  3. Thanks Todd! What model of your dust/pellet smoker do you recommend for the MES 40?

    I think Todd meant call Masterbuilt customer service.

    I think he will recommend the pellet smoker. It will use both pellets & dust.
  5. Thanks Al. Thanks for all your posts as well. I have enjoyed reading for a while before joining in.

    Welcome to SMF! I have the same exact smoker (got mine about 2 weeks ago), and yes they do have a retrofit kit for that smoker. The only problem is it is on back order and will be in stock some time in October. They will put you on a waiting list and once it arrives they will send it out free of charge!

    Pellet Burner if you plan on smoking above 180°

    You can use sawdust or pellets

    Use coupon code = SMF$10 for $10 off the pellet burner.

  8. Todd, I already placed my order. Order number 2870. Not sure if there is anything you can do after the fact. Ordered the pellet burner and 4#s of pellets. 
  9. Thanks for the heads up! I tried to call them but they apparently are buried after the holiday so I sent an email with my model/serial numbers and asked for the retrofit tray. No reply yet but I assume I will hear from them when they have a chance to get caught up.
