Hello everyone! I am John from Maine. I ordered my first smoker yesterday and expect delivery on Thursday. I puchased the MES 40 gen 1. I have spent weeks reading posts on this forum, researching a plethora of smokers, and truly believe i made the right decision. I also ordered an AMNPS package deal from A-MAZE-N products. I have much to learn and this site is the place for the education that I need. I will be sure to post, with photos, a synopsis of my first smoke. Thanks for this exquisite site!
