need some advice on MES

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about buying an MES 40", but I want the 1200 watt model. Does anyone know what model # they are? I've already read the posts about the mods needed, which are no problem. Anything else that I should know about them? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Brad

Not sure about the wattage but this is the current 40" model. A friend of mine recently bought one and they have made several good changes to it. I wonder when they will figure out that having the top vent directly above the heat source creates a hot spot.PDT_Armataz_01_03.gif

Sams Club has the 40" but it may not be at your local store.

The one that I just got from Sam's has a model # 20070810, 40" 1200w. I heard that 20070710 could be the same one.
The one from Bass Pro looks the same as mine but the #is diff model #: 20071009. Not sure if that has anything to do with anything

The new model has 1200 watts on the inspection plate. You can also tell by the flat plate welded on the top of the chip loader tray. I love mine.

Great value for the $$$!

I went to Sams Friday & bought the 40" MES w/ 3 year warranty. Seasoned it yesterday. Probably won't get to do my first smoke with it until next weekend. I am gonna use Pignit's cart suggestion. Thanks for all your help & suggestions guys.

I just bought mine this past Saturday, seasoned it Saturday night and did my first smoke on Sunday. I love it. The temperature shoots right back up after the door is closed and its really easy to smoke with.
