I was wondering if Sams would get one in from another store for you since it's a club. Too bad they're not all alike when it comes to inventory.

Thanks! Been doing tons of research and probably spent 3 hours reading on this forum yesterday. Learned tons! I am new to all of this and ready to pull the trigger now. It appears from eveything I have read that you can't go wrong with this unit as a "newbie", or a seasoned veteran!

Well I made the "plunge" into this new world of BBQ finally! I received my 5 X 8 AMNPS in the mail yesterday. Went to Sams and picked up the MES 40 BT and it is fully assembled. Will be running my seasoning cycle today. Plan to throw a couple of slabs of babybacks in tomorrow.

I would like to give a big "THANKS" to Bear and all the other guys that have taken the time to post TONS of valuable info for us "newbies" on how to start out smoking like veterans!
