Need help identifying the age of an MES I found online.

Cruising Craigslist as I am known to do, looking at grills and smokers for sale. Came across this listing...

http://longisland.craigslist.org/hsh/4456002630.html

Wondering if any of you MES owners on here could help me figure out the age of this smoker as well as clue me in on whether its a good buy. I have read that some generations of MES have issues etc. Thanks again for your help!

My 30 in. looks just like that only no window.  Its 7 or 8 years old?

 

I know not much help.  Maybe Bear will know.

You can likely find it here, seems like a pretty complete list.

That is a good price if it works. I would snatch it up...JJ

2010 first gen MES 40. Digital controls. It should also have a remote control unit, which is very nice to have but not absolutely necessary. If it's missing you might be able to get a replacement from Masterbuilt. The unit is the same one I have and I love it. It originally cost about $299 when new, and is highly prized over the "new" model. If it works properly, that's a real bargin.

I was just told by the seller that it is the 30 inch model #20070110. Any opinions on that one?

You didn't buy it yet? Get it. Where the controller and exhaust is, its a good one.

For $85 ?  In a heart beat.  Even if you don't use it as your primary smoker, it's easily worth that just to have on hand when you want to do a "set it and forget it" smoke every once in a while.

That's what I was thinking. I almost want it primarily for cold smoking and bacon and what not. But then I'll have to buy a smoke generator. Damn this hobby haha. It's more expensive than golf! Seller said it's only 2-3 years old. I am awaiting the answers to my questions about its condition and when it was last used. I will probably go for it if all is good.

Only two questions to ask.  Does it turn on ?  Does it heat up ?   :drool
