MES40 20072612 vs. 20070311

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Ok guys been looking into an MES40 smoker but couldn't find any local dealers so I contacted Masterbuilt directly and they are going to sell me one and ship to me. The rep I talked to suggested I google both the part numbers above to decide which smoker would best suit me. from what I can tell there basically the same, with one being an updated version, though I can't find anything on which unit is actually better, can anyone shed some light on the situation?

The 0311is the tried and true gen 1 40 inch with 1200 watt element, wheels and reliable controller. It also has an access panel to get to the element if needed. The 2612 is a gen 2. Different interior design and controllers that have problems. I've owned both and wouldn't give you a dollar for the gen 2.
