Good morning Smoke.
Welcome to SMF! I'm right across the Amite in B.R.
I have used the Master built electric (MES) for close to six years .
The MES smokes some great food. You will need to get a thermometer that you can check for accuracy as the MES thermos are notorious for being off up to 20 degrees. Also to use the MES as is you will need to feed chips about every 45 min. If you get one of The AMNPS pellet smoke generators you can get 8 - 10 hrs of perfect smoke without having to add anything .
Do not follow mfgs instructions when using the unit. Run the exhaust vent fully open.
The folks here have done more R & D on the mes than the factory has.
If you have any questions please feel free to PM me . if i cant answer i know folks that can.
