Thanks Doug


Like Mummel's post, I could only see 6 vs.4 racks.  Whatever is the best deal.  I'm only using the number of racks it takes to hold the food I'm smoking.  The 6 rack model gives more levels to choose from when using fewer racks.  Also, the top racks on both look as if there is the same amount of room so they put 2 more racks in between the top and bottom racks maybe for jerky and smaller cuts, giving it 1,462.5 sq. inches of cooking area instead of 975 on the 4 rack model.  With your handle are you using it at the Firehouse or home?

You both responded to my original post on this thread that helped me a lot.  It was the 20th post on this thread on page one two weeks ago.  Even when I read all my subscribed posts It shows that I have unread posts that I just clear.  Mark them as a read post.

I hate when I reply to a post before looking at the post date.

Uh oh. I hope that's higher than what you paid. When I bought my MES 30 Gen 1, I knowingly paid a price that was near the top of the roller coaster because I didn't want to wait any longer.

We got the price you posted at $273.68. It should be here tomorrow. That was a close call. yahoo.gif

Me too!  $273.  Good grief... so glad we jumped on that when we did!  I can't believe its back up to $399.95 today.  I feel soooo much better about this buy!

Home I retired from the department 2 years ago after an on the job injury.

 

Just got back from Bass Pro picked up the Masterbuilt™ Sportsman Elite® 40" Bluetooth® Smart Digital Electric Smoker for $429.99 less 10% also picked up the Cold Smoker Attachment.

 

I think I am going to also buy 1 of the AMNPS.

Kurt and dbbyleo, I'm glad I was able to help you find a bargain on what is undoubtedly a great smoker.

post #109 of 111

Greetings.  I am new to smoking and I am considering the following Gen1 smokers.

20070910 30" no window from Amazon

20070211 30" window from Amazon

20071011 30" window from Home Depot.

 

Besides the model number I can't tell any difference between the Amazon and Home Depot units.

 

I see the main advantage of the window units are the window, wheels, remote control, and meat thermometer.

If I go with the no window model what is a meat thermometer that is recommended?

 

I also plan to purchase an AMNPS which everyone seems to love.

Most people here recommend the 40incher.  What's your budget?

post #111 of 111

The 40" cover for MES is down to $25 (from $35 previously) on Amazon.  Just FYI.
