PiginIt, you are an evil genius. I just brought home my brand new MES from Sam's, and now I have to go back and spend another $60 for the cart. I wish I had got it done while the little lady was in spending mode, but she loves the smoked food that it shouldn't be too much of a hard sell.

This is my first electric smoker in over twenty years. It's going to be a fun ride. I'm looking forward to y'alls help and mod info.

Welcome to the world of MES. I love mine and smoke on it two or three times a week. If I'm not smokin something up for the freezer I'm smokin somethin up for somebody else. I love this new MES and I haven't made any mods to it. Haven't felt the need. I'm going to hook up the smoke daddy with the chip tray.... that's all I have planned. It works so much better than the first one I had that I really think I must have gotten a lemon. The upgrades have really improved the little unit and I don't think you can find better bang for the buck. I love my cart too.

Update: I bought the 40" MES with window from Sam's a week ago. Between weather and obligations I have only had time to season it to this point. First smoke is tomorrow with a huge butt (I do like the big butts), a couple of fattys for my son and his friends, some boudin, ABT's , and a sausage to be named later. But I digress.

My patio and deck are not covered, and I don't have a garage (carport). My outbuilding is stuffed with tillers, mowers, tools, and the like. It was getting really tiresome bear-hugging the MES all over trying to find its "spot".

Today we were at Lowe's shopping for a coat rack for the entry way to the house. We found what we wanted and then just cruised down the aisle browsing, and then a light from the heavens shown down upon a package that solved my problems. A package of four swivel casters, two with locking wheels. The stem diameter and threads seemed to be right, and you can always bring them back, so I took the plunge. We ran home and took off the stock feet and low and behold, the casters fit perfectly! They are 4" diameter, steel stem, and a 500# rating. I couldn't be happier. Best of all, the price is $19.97. I highly recommend this mod to any new MES owner. The carts are great, but for we, the economically challenged, this is the bomb. Here is the link:

Good luck!

Do any of you guys have the Sams part # for the stainless cart?

post #47 of 109

I have several of these carts that I got from Sam's, and I bought them especially for my smokers. I found out the hard way, they will rust, even with wax applyed. There is no way I know to protect them from rusting.

This is just what I have been thinking about will be doing this one for sure.


post #49 of 109

I bought the same Smoker and the same cart from Sam's.  The only differences are I used the 1st rack to hold all my wood chips, and the 2nd rack to hold the smoker racks, and the 3rd rack holds the smoker.


Works great!!!!!!!!!!!


Oh yeah,  I have a BMW and a Kawasaki in the garage instead of a Harley)))

This looks awesome and plan on picking one up today when I go to Sam's.  It's been three years now, any further modifications, or new ideas?

post #56 of 109

Great idea.  Even though my MES 40 has wheels, I like that this cart raises the whole unit up, so less bending down.  The side shelves are great too.  I got mine at Sam's too so I'll check there for that cart.  Thanks.

post #57 of 109

Very nice work Pignit.  Looks great and easy to reach the bottom, gives me something to think about.

Great job and what a price for the cart, gotta love what folks come up with.yahoo.gif
post #59 of 109

Unfortunately, I did the same thing...or so I thought...bought the MES 40 at Sams and thought the cart was the same from 09 from this post.  The cart measured wide enough and was $59 with a 500lb weight limit.  The cart does NOT fit the MES 40.  It is too large to fit in-between the posts and is much smaller than the one originally in this post.  I can't even cut the posts down to make is usable, just wasted $59.  This is totally on me, should have been able to figure it was not going to fit.  

post #60 of 109

Okay, please disregard my previous post.  The error was completely mine and I ordered the wrong one!  There are more than one cart available at $59 with a 500lb limit.  The one you want is the same number listed.  Sorry I screwed this up.  Of course I have to take mine back and try to get the right one!
