I think I got a good MES 40 (gen I)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I'm on my third smoke in one week on my new MES 40 (20070311).  So far I'm extremely pleased and trust me I was sweating bullets when I ordered it.

 

I've used both the AMNPS and the Masterbuilt cold smoker attachment.  Both work well but the attachment really puts out smoke!

 

Right now I'm cold smoking 9 lbs. of andouille sausage and 3 lbs. of snack sticks.  The internal temp probe is reading about 15F higher than the Maverick so I just set the temp using the Maverick.  Believe it or not the meat probe is reading exactly the same as the Maverick's meat probe.  It took a few minutes for the MB meat probe to settle in.  I am surprised at this based on all the probs folks are having with it.

 

Time will tell whether this smoker is truly a good one but so far it's been worth the money.  Here's some pics of my first three smokes.

 

Here's the sausages loaded in the smoker:

 

The cold smoker attachment puts out a lot of smoke:

 

The first smoke ever was this salmon:

 

The AMNPS did a great job on the smoke:

 

This was the best jerky ever.  Way better than the dehydrator:
