Ron,what is a smoke daddy and where can you buy one?Thanks for the info Double RL
Have you called the 800 number on the back of the user manual. (1-800-489-1581) Speak to customer service. I have model #20070211 and their was a design issue. They have sent me an updated box for the chips. Should be here any day now. I'll let you know if it fixes the issue.
Good luck
The Amazin' Smoker is a good option for MES and Bradley owners that want to cold smoke, or supplemental smoke. Cheap and easy to use, and will smoke for 4-6 hours without attention.....Just a thought.
jusmokit... thanks for the tip! I am 3 weeks in with my MES40 and feel like it was struggling generating smoke. Would have never thought to call for a new part. Customer service is sending my chip tray retro kit next week.
I will also say that on recommendation from another smoker, i spent the day with my MES40 and added chips, dry, wet, soaked then towel dried... The dry chips gave a lot of smoke. Soaking wet chips took 45 minutes to generate any smoke at all. The towel dried chips may be the best answer. It was a day well spent.
Let me know what you all think.
I heard that if you open up the vents a bit and turn up the heat the element will stay hotter longer with out getting too hot on the inside..... give it a shot???
This is an excellent smoker but for some reason Amazon's pricing is not competitive. I read electric smoker reviews and I buy a lot from Amazon, but pricing on this item baffles me. Check around at the warehouse clubs and outdoor/fishing-hunting places.

The remote control, a new feature, was not well thought out. It gives you only limited functionality. It can't even display the current temperature of the smoker. And it's easy to "think" your smoker is still on by looking at the remote, but it's off. The range of the remote is quite limited too.
