My wife suprised me last week after I had been asking for a newer smoker.
I've been smoking various meats for 10+ yrs and I've had charcoal and propane smokers in the past. I like to make jerky but my propane smoker would burn the edges of the meat. I couldn't get it 'cool enough'. After researching various smokers I elected for the MES40 for $299 at the local Sams club.
I did some chicken wings on it last monday-they were excellent. So far (my wife's used it as much as I have) we made pork steak, ribs, chicken wings, pork loin and chicken breast. Im hoping to make some jerky later this week. This is a great website with lots of info. I used the 3-2-1 for the ribs and they were great!
Here's my smoker doing the chicken wings last monday...
