Very nice. How tall is it from the floor to the bottom of the smoker. Just ball park doesn't have to be exact.

I have been inspired to build my own for my MES30 after reading this! My ol lady hates the mess I have created with smoking stuff strewn about so I will begin building tomorrow! I just went to Home Depot and purchased the supplies.

Hello all, I just got the 40" to add to my arsenal of charcoal smokers (Acorn,Broil King Keg and Vision grill M) I have yet to get it out of the box(I know the agony of it all!! lol) Im not will to spend another $127 for the stand via bass pro shop thats just robbery! If i make a stand or but some sort of stand will a wood bottom be safe? im not sure how hot the bottom of the smoker will get. Any reply will be appreciated!

 

 

Thanks

Thanks

 

I never noticed the bottom of mine getting hot.

The upper 2/3 of the right side gets hot, as does the right side of the top surface. This is on my Gen #1 MES 40.

 

However I do have a sheet of aluminum under mine mainly for easy to clean reason.
