The mailbox mod is one of many ways to consider. Do a search, but meanwhile, here's a very active post on the same issue:
The MES 40 is capable of producing CLOUDS of smoke. So not sure what you mean by saying can't get any smoke into the meat. Do you have a gen 1 or gen 2 (controller in the front, exhaust vent on the left side) model? I've had both generation of the MES and, although there are a few issues with both, I never had a problem with them producing smoke. There was one model that needed a full chip tray replacement but that was some time ago. Is the unit producing smoke and you just aren't tasting it in the meat. As soon as the words MES and smoke are used in the same sentence around here everyone yells AMAZ N without getting to the root of the problem. And the gen 2 (and some gen 1's) just don't have enough airflow without mods to support a reliable AMAZ N pellet tray burn. Give a little more into and lets see if there is a problem with your smoking procedure or the MES.
