What is up with the MBS 40? Getting hard to find. - Page 5

post #81 of 97

For those looking for other sources of Masterbuilt -- we were in a Lowes today and they had one MES30 in a box priced at $179.   Didn't see any MES40s though.

I did see Atwoods had a sale on the older model 30'' this week. 149.99 not a bad price

Just an update.

 

This smoker seems to be a very good unit.  I am enjoying the remote control.  Someone asked about the range.  My home is 3500Sq feet and I can use it anywhere in the house.  The smoker is on my back patio.  It's a very convenient feature. 

 

The wheels are a welcome addition.  My last smoker did not have that.  I'd say the same thing for the light.

For all you guys getting the 40" at Sam's Club - do you already have a membership or what? I've heard that maybe you can shop there without a membership and pay 10% on top of the shelf price. Is that what you're doing? I can't find anyone I know here with a membership.

Sometimes they will let you in on a guest pass.. or a day pass. You can go in and talk to the customer service dept and see what they say.

Go and tell them you want a one day trial membership.

Here's a link to some info on the 1 day pass.

Realistically, if you pay the 10% for not being a member you might as well pay the $40 for the membership.

Ah, so I need the one-day pass just to be able to buy something there? That doesn't even avoid the 10% premium. Although $330 is still better than $399 and my local Sam's does have these in stock. I might have a new toy this weekend.

Buy the membership if you are buying the smoker.  It pays for itself right there.  Plus, they have a pretty good meat department.  I use their baby back ribs quite a bit.

I got my MES, it is all stainless but no remote and no wheels. I went to the Cabela's website and they have changed the description and it is a different picture than when I ordered AND it's all of a sudden $349 not the $399 I paid. I specifically remember the picture being the one with the black sides and I'm pretty sure it said it came with the remote. Maybe not, but if I'm not gonna get those extra's it sure would have been nice to pay the $349 price.

 

Man, I'm just gettin' shafted all over the place with my new toys, the stupid foodsaver, then the POS I bought from Ebay and now this. I'll go through all the BS of emailing and calling, but I shouldn't have to.

I'm pretty sure all of Cabela's "New" MES 40s with the remote are all SS (Model number ending with #311).

 

I'm also pretty sure that they have a policy taking care of the fact that you paid $399, and it changed to $349 nearly at the same time. I think they will refund you $50.

 

They always seem to play fair,

Bear

Squirrel,

 

Call them up and send it back A.S.A.P!!!

Confirm the model # you ordered wasn't swapped out for another model.

 

Fangs and Claws My Friend!!

So I finally got through to Cabella's and they said they don' t show where they had that particular model. I don't know why I was so convinced they did, but atleast they are willing to give me the $50 back. I'll keep it, having the wheels isn't important at all to me, I would have liked to have the remote. One thing I did come up with though is the place I am putting it is on my back porch right by my kitchen window. So, I can run my thermometer with alarm through the window and hear it go off! Problem solved.

Bear has the new Cabelas MES 20070311 with the all SS sides and the remote and wheels.

I did notice that on the Cabelas web site the 349.00 on is the older model. I posted about this same issue here post #12

http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/forum/thread/99899/mes-40-with-remote-christmas-present .

The Cabelas item number for the new 20070311 is JL-550174. See this link http://www.cabelas.com/product/Masterbuilt-Electric-Smokehouse-with-Window/1008588.uts 

I called them and verified that they had the same model number as bear gave me. The older MES 40 with black sides is cabelas item number IK-519373 see this link

http://www.cabelas.com/product/Masterbuilt-4034-Smoker-with-Window/732549.uts?Ntk=AllProducts&searchPath=%2Fcatalog%2Fsearch%2F%3FN%3D%26No%3D0%26Ntk%3DAllProducts%26Ntt%3Dsmoker%26Ntx%3Dmode%252Bmatchall%26WTz_stype%3DSP%26form_state%3DsearchForm%26search%3Dsmoker&Ntt=smoker

So they have both the new and old 40'' MES I would definitely  call them back and tell them about there item numbers I listed above.

Bought the 40" from Sams Club today. I got in with the one day pass linked earlier. They had 4-5 on the floor and one fully assembled on display. They had the newer model with remote and all, this looks like a helluva smoker.

post #96 of 97

I got mine seasoned yesterday, been too darn busy to give it a thorough cleaning today though. I have an awesome "christening" planned for this baby.

post #97 of 97

Got mine seasoned today with some apple wood. Have some bb ribs(3), butts(2), chuckies(2) in the cooler all rubbed up with Jeff's famous rub and injected with apple juice and cider vinegar for the butts and beef stock and some rub for the chuckies.  Gonna be a big day tomorrow!!  Ohh ya, also made some pork finishing sauce because i like it better when it sits for a day or two.  Jeff
