Jakester, I also have the mes40 and love it for certain things. the temp gauge is notoriously off so a maverick is needed. Ive smoked 4 briscuits at once with excellent results.
I do enjoy the learning curve on a new smoker. The pellet grill is off to a good start. all I,ve done so far is some ribs and a chicken :)
That's a tricky question.
The short answer is, If I could only have one, as an all around cook anything, I would have to say the pellet.
If I'm smoking I tend to smoke a large quantity. I haven't done Butts or Brisket yet on the pellet but I can fit a lot on the MES and with the cold smoke attachment I get very smokey excellent results.
So far I like the ribs and chicken better on the pellet and I'm sure steak, burgers and vegetables will be great also.
I'm believe I will like ABT's and large cuts on the MES better.
The pellet is a much milder smoke and that's with the amazin smoke generator.
So for now at least, I like having both...
