Got all the meat on and recovery is going slow. Put a palmfull of pecan chips in the chute and now the dang thing won't smoke????

 Don't want to open it back up to check the pan till the temps get back up.

I wanna hijack your thread for a minute eman, I just didn't want to start a new thread. I am looking at the MES 40'' with the window. I've been reading alot of reviews about the heating element in these things going out, what's that all about and does it require alot of mods?

Mine was a couple of years old and it's a  1 - 1.5 hr fix.

 The new ones have an access panel in the back . which cuts down on the labor by over half .

 I don't know that the newer models have the same wiring problem that the old ones had.

 It is not the element itself that goes bad  The connector that is on the wire that attaches to the element burns loose.

 I have done no mods to mine untill doing this repair.

Hey Dale Check here for all sizes of Hi Temp Wire...
