What MES 30 should I get?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Bas Pro has the new MES 30 for $239 they also have a floor model of the 1st gen MES 30. What one should I get? Are the phasing out the 1st GEN? Will parts be hard to come by in 2-3 years?

I bought a new one (controls in the front) in 02/13...lasted a week.  Swapped it out for a gen 1 ... I think model 20070910.  Works perfect.

Wow, you think I should by the floor model first Gen? The salesman said I could get it discounted since its the floor model.

I know the next gen had controller issues...can‘t say if the one you're looking at does or not.

Do you know if Masterbuilt is discontinuing the older Gen? Is it going to be hard to get parts for it in a few years?

Number one---If they were going to discontinue a model, so far it looks like it should be the new one.

 

However they're working on fixing it as we speak.

 

I don't think parts will get any harder to get than they are now.

IMHO not worth worrying about for a ~$200 smoker.

In case you didn't notice...you'll be wanting a AMNPS.

There is only one AMNPS (Pellet & Dust)-----It is 5" X 8".

 

The other Amazing smokers are:

 

various sizes of AMNS (Dust only).

 

and various sizes of AMNTS (Pellet smoking tube smokers)

 

 

Best one for an MES is the 5" X 8" AMNPS.
