I'm sort of torn between building a fridge smoker/cooker and just getting a MES 40" and mounting it on a custom made cabinet to raise it up to eye level. Would also have a short storage cabinet below and a work counter top to the side at normal cabinet height with at least double door storage underneath. Cabinet is an easy build and the MES 40" is pretty much sufficient for what I need size wise (for now anyway), plus it's ready to do and a proven unit.
Problem is, if I do this, the control box on top of the MES is above eye level. So since it's only two plugs from the controller to the main body, I was wondering if anyone had tried moving theirs and using a interim extension of those two cords?
I want to avoid stooping down like in this photo (knee problems).
Excuse the 30 second photo shop job, but this should give you the approximate idea of what I'm talking about doing (with a little bigger side table area). Thinking of moving the control box from the top of the smoker to the top of the side table at waist level. (with apologies to the original poster of the fine wood smoker I found via a google search).
