MES 30" chip loader paint chipping

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Anyone notice this on their MES?  Is it paint or fat and grease? I don't remember what color it was when I first used it.  If it is paint, is it safe to be using it if it's putting off smoke?

Looks like paint.  Call Masterbuilt.

paint chipping away, I don't think the paint will smoke though, I could be wrong. Call Masterbuilt. After my second smoke mine did that a little but I did not worry about it too much. Could always sand it off and you some hi temp rustoleum

I would just scrape and sand it off. You don't want to be burning paint it the chip burner.

Is that a new Gen MES? I just checked mine (I've had it for over 3 yrs) and it don't look like that. I have a little bit of what looks like creosote where your's looks blistered. Mine is all metal too except for the handle. 

 

Is the blistered part on yours metal or plastic?

even better sand all the paint off and keep it off. I was reading reviews from a few years ago where they used to paint them and people would get a metalic taste so newer ones were shipped out with no paint. Now that I think about it mine only has paint where yours is chipping which is never in the smoker

Yeah I think it's a new gen one.  It's got the display right above the door.  The chip loader is all metal except for the handle.   I sent MB a message with a picture, so hopefully they respond.

I swear it seems like 50/50 with them. I have seen people that have had nothing but great service with them and others that cannot say anything positive
