I have been following the MES 40 threads very closely, I have found a first generation MES 40" Smoker on craigs list in my area. He is asking $200, says he has only used it twice. What would be a good deal to get this at, $150, $175? I have seen the post about QVC contact selling refurbs for $200 plus shipping but figured if I can not have to pay shipping and get him down in price it would be a better deal for me. Then the money I save I can get a AMNPS.
