I'm looking to augment my UDS with an electric here in Minnesota. I've searched, read, and read some more...and I'm more confused than when I started! I like the features of the MES 40. That being said- Amazon says 3-6 months shipping on the "new generation", leading me to believe it really isn't available, while the "old generation" is available. Masterbuilt's web site shows out of stock on 2 different 40" models. Walmart can ship to store, but which version will I be getting? Which of the 3 wattages I see here is correct? 800? 850? 1200? I'm fully prepared to spend $600-700 on a smoker, Maverick thermometer, and tube smoker, but I want to know what I'll actually be getting with a MES 40. ***qualifier*** I'm new here. I've lurked alot, and have given an honest effort to searching for the answers. I want to smoke fish, pork, beef, sausage, fatties, turkey, and chicken. Maybe cheese on occasion. Thanks in advance(and if i should be looking at a different smoker, please let me know).
