New to the forum and new to smokers. Based on some online research, I just purchased the MES 40 model 20070211 from Sam's Club.
I've done some reading on the forum and noticed there is apparently a free mod available for my smoker. I have a 1/2 size chip tray and I've read a few posts and seen people mention a free upgrade full size chip tray available. I haven't bought meats to smoke yet, so it's going to be a little while before I use it.
Here are some questions I have:
1. How does one go about getting the upgrade full size chip tray? I'd like to do an upgrade before I use the smoker when it's still new. I was an electronic/electro mechanical technician in my past and I know upgrades are much easier performed on new equipment.
2. Are there any other modifications I should consider doing to improve the unit? Again, I'd rather upgrade wiring, etc. while the unit is still new.
3. I'd love to hear of any other improvements I might make to the smoker at this time.
