A picture would be great.
I have an old MES 30, with my AMZN pellet tray it was such a PIA to stay lit, I drilled an 1.5" hole in the side, works great!
I am thinking about upgrading to the MES 40 and see you are using an AMAZN pellet tray, how's it work? Does it stay let well?
I have been using my MES 30 with an AMZN tray for years without much problems, just wondering your experience with the new MES 40 and the AMZN tray.
Thanks for any help!

It depends on which MES 40 you get.
If you get the Generation #1, like mine, it will be best as in my Pic below.
If you get the Gen #2.5 Bluetooth, the best places seem to be where "mummel" has his in post #127, or setting it on one of the ends of the Water Pan.
Those are the two that the AMNPS works best in.
I would say if you are at a high altitude, you should get the Tube smoker (AMNTS), but since you've been using the AMNPS in your MES 30, you should be good with it in your MES 40.
Hope that helps,
