MES 30 or 40? - Page 3

post #41 of 48

40" is worth the few extra bucks and you'll appreciate it more in the long run, but if all you have room for is the 30", Go For It!

Thanks all for the replies... 40" it shall be... now the monkey wrench... all stainless or sams club?

 

Why go stainless for $50 more? Err how to convince the wife that we're now going to pay about double of the 30". icon_cry.gif

That's entirely up to you.

 

I think it's easier to keep clean & won't rust, and I actually was willing to pay $106 more for the All Stainless, and now due to the sale at Cabela's (Nov 26th to Dec 1st) the difference is only half of that. 

However I would say the size difference is more important that the SS vs Black.

 

How to convince the wife --- Stainless Steel?

Hmmm, let's see, my nearly 42 years of marriage experience says, find something in your garage, or shed, or laying around somewhere that is all rusty. Show her that & show her a nice clean piece of Stainless Steel. Then say, "Honey, Dear, Sweetheart, which one do you like?" If you don't end up having to Duck---You're in!

Just buy it!  It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Well, look at it this way, a "Coach" purse costs $400 and it's also Made in China".

 

This is how you have to explain it the the Wife.

 

Be careful though....or she may want a Coach purse and how are you going to say No??

I am planning to upgrade to a 40" SS MES, but I did not know they came with wheels, remote (is that a temp probe?)  and tilt handle.  What model is that?

That would be like mine----Model 20070311----Sold at Cabela's---I don't know where else.

 

Make sure you see it yourself to be sure it's the one you want.

 

These stores never seem to know which one they're selling.

 

The remote controls all of the same things you can do by pushing the buttons on top of the smoker, but it does it from 300 feet away & probably any room in your house. It has the smoker sensor in the back wall, and a built in meat probe.

Sweet...I like the sound of having one with wheels and a remote and built in temp probe...that sound like a perfect combo...I have a MES 30 right now along with my UDS....the MES is just so easy and handy to use, since I keep it on my deck next to my grill...much easier than going out and firing up the UDS everytime I want to smoke something...and now that I have the A Maze N smoker..I can also use my MES for cold smoke and jerky too.

 

I am seriously contemplating upgrading to the 40" MES.
