Signed up today .. but I must have read half a years posts before I dropped the hammer on a MES 30 electric from Cabela's on the 11th .
Many thanks to the community and the dedication of other posters like Smokin-Al who shared with others and as a result answered all the questions I had in a number of his responses ..
I have always been a "top down" griller .. so it is about time I took the next step .. ( baby step ) and jumped to a MES30 ..
Yes I am aware that Cabela's dropped their price by $100.00 today and they will refund the difference if you contact them within a 7 day period .. I did, and Barb @ CS has advised me I will get the $100.00 refund .. I had to throw down a total of $535.00 for the unit with shipping/duty/taxes ( air ) so the price drop really helps .. I cry when I read that some of you folks can hit these units at Low's for $179.00 .. but then again I guess you need to be compensated for the lack of ability to take day long trips on a Ski-doo and enjoy -11c weather like I have today :-) ..... Yah right ! :-)
I live in Canada .. in the province ( Like a US state ) of Newfoundland .. It is on the east coast so I get the sun first :-)
Thanks to all the posters .. I will supply unit serial number and size of chip tray etc. as this seems to be a common thread of interest .. I dropped the hammer before the new units came out as I believe you guys seem to have all the bugs covered in the older ones .. the new model will most likely bring new problems and if they do not .. then I would miss the opportunity to tinker :-)
My weakness is Montreal Smoked Meat .. ( like pastrami ) .. so I should be good to go :-)
