I've been reading the eletric smoker forum for the past few nights after seeing the Black Friday price at Bass Pro. $179 for the MES 30" SS with window and meat probe, regular priced at ~$339. I'm ready to be at their door at 5:30AM but tonight on our local Craigslist was this listing: "$110 for a MasterBuilt 4 Rack Digital Stainless Steel Electric Smoker. Used only 3 times. Like new. Paid 225.00."
I spoke to the owner and he said the unit is 2 years old. Given the numerous posts on potential heating element problems, I'm leaning towards the Bass Pro unit but the low price and sleeping in on Black Friday are also appealing:-) Anyone see any issues with the Craigslist unit if it is as advertised and he accepts $100? Thanks, Mike
