thanks... another stupid question.... I realize this is based on not knowing how I would actually use this, and neither do I (my son and 5 little ones under 8 in my house) - I found a 40" bt at Sams $59. more. Is the additional size from the 30" worth it?
Thanks again.... getting so close to my FINAL decision :-)
I don't like to spend other people's money, but I would say a 40" is worth at least $100 more than a 30".
I didn't like cutting rib racks in half, or Briskets, but I made 10 pounds of Bear Sticks when I had my MES 30, and could only get 7 pounds on my racks.
And when I make Bacon, there's only so many directions I can turn the pieces to get them to fit on each rack.
Consider that I never use the bottom rack, because it's too close to the heat source.
