The MailBox Mod Rocks!
I finally did the mailbox mod on my MES 30 Gen1. I have had the old girl for years and it is a really great little smoker.
But darn near every time the smoker would get over 230 my AMZNPS would catch fire, this is the fix for that!
I also recently bought an Auber PID which has greatly improved the temperature fluctuations.
Got a mailbox off eBay for $16 bucks.
Built some legs from some old car trim.
I already had a 3” flex hose and high temp silicone. Had these old 3 ½” turndowns from a hotrod exhaust project that I never used.
When testing I put probes near each of the 4 walls and used the iGrill to monitor temps, not too bad.
TBS - She is really cruising along now!
