    We had 60 mph winds in Omaha yesterday.  Knocked over my MES40.  Looked ok, but I'll have to fire it up this weekend to see if it's working.  Fell face first.  Glass and door looks ok.  It got tied down.
  2. Sorry to hear that man - I hope it's ok  [​IMG]   If it was mine though I'd have to test it right away - I wouldn't be able to wait till the weekend to know!

    Whoa...thanks for posting. We have some strong winds on occasion and even though my MES is somewhat sheltered, I think I better secure even more.  Sorry to hear about that, but hope it is ok.  I'm with Smoking B, I don't think I could wait.

    Couldn't wait, either.  Turned it on to 225 and it looks like it's okay.

    Welcome Zjolsen!!

    Please go to "Roll Call" so you can be welcomed properly.

    With an MES and an AMNPS, you have a Great team.

    The other thing you should get would be a digital wireless therm set, like the Maverick ET-732.

    Then you'll have a Good smoking box, a great smoke generator, and accurate smoking temperatures.

    Yup winds here in OMA sucked yesterday this week but I am lucky enough to have a awesome wife who allows me to bring it indoors covered for storage.

    Could be worse. Your smoker (& everything else) could get sucked up in a twister. It's been a bad season for those right now.
