If you're looking for a new smoker, make sure a 30" MES isn't one of them
I've had mine for about 6 months, but only used it 3-4 times and the digital control panel no longer displays correctly.
Its almost like the connection to the LED panel is loose, if i press on the screen really hard i can see the numbers, let go and it goes black again.
I emailed Masterbuilt Customer Service which didn't really help me, except to say I can buy a replacement part from them.
$60 for 3-4 smokes? thats more than I paid for my ECB 4 years ago, and that thing is still going strong after probably 40 smokes.
So much for my 'upgrade'
