Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite 40'' #20070315 - Page 2

post #21 of 25

A CSR at Masterbuilt told me Sam's Club is bringing out a Gen 2.5 with no frills (no bluetooth, no window etc) in 6-9 weeks.  If I get this confirmed by another CSR I will let you guys know.  Otherwise if you need a 40 bluetooth today, Bass Pro and Cabelas have it.  Amazon will have it in early July.  Nothing at Lowes or Home Depot yet. 


I'm ready to buy one but I'm going to be patient and wait for a no frills 2.5 MES 40.  They are not on the market yet.  If anyone finds one, please let me know.

Rick covered about everything.

The only things I'll add is that it is my understanding that you can't get the Gen #2.5 without the bluetooth. No regular MES remote.


As for spacing, I would say it depends on what you're smoking. 6 racks would be fine for Jerky & Sticks, but even with only 4 racks, I have to remove the rack above to double smoke hams.


I use my racks in the following order:

If I need one rack, I use the second one.

If I need 2, I use #1 and #2.

If I need 3 I use #1, #2, and #3.

I never use #4 for any food, because it's too close to the heating element. IMO

Anyone have a pic showing the placement of an AMPS in the new Gen 2.5 MES 40?

Why Masterbuilt doesnt release all their models in the spring is strange.  Surely that's when most people are buying smokers?????
