I've been on the lookout for an MES smoker after reading through the forums. I like the cabinet style door and electric is for me, the way to go. I had stopped in a little junk shop to pick up a a shallow well pump and as I was leaving saw the MES. A brief negotiation and $30 got it loaded into my truck an headed home with me. I need to do some studying and learn the finer points of using one, but I am very pleased to have it. I've got a digital thermometer probe to mount and a pair of vent wheels I plan to use to allow control of airflow from bottom to top. Probably fab a permanent tent for the AMNPS tray. Those of you who know more than I do, and that would be most all of you, please speak up and educate me.
