MES 40" How do you tell the difference between the different GEN ##'s

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi All,

 

As I keep reading more and more information about electric smokers the MES 40" always comes up.  When the MES 40" comes up so follows the GEN ##, Gen 2 or Gen 2.5.  

 

I have read not to buy the Gen 2.  I'm not sure why but when people tell me not to buy something a little red flag goes up in my head.  

As i said, I don't know why not to buy the Gen 2 and why to buy the Gen 2.5.  This leads me to my 2 questions.

 

Can someone please explain the difference and the one to get?

Can someone tell me how to differentiate between the 2?

 

Thanks for reading.

All the Gen 2.5s come with Bluetooth, the vent on top, the sun shield over the LCD etc.  Thats the one you want to get, or the Gen 1s.  I dont know enough about the Gen 1s to identify them but their availability is limited. 

 

Sams, Cabelas, Bass Pro and Amazon have the 40 BT.

I don't know enough about the Gen 2's to tell you much about them except that GEN1's are Hinged on the l right and the GEN'2s the door hinges are on the left..   Jted

Thank you guys.

 

I can't get myself to pull the trigger yet.  I keep going back to the XL Cajun injector with solid doors.
