Hey all... been lurking around the last few days and pulled the trigger on the MES 40 Gen 1. I just couldn't pass up the $199 Deal Academy was running. I also purchased the AMNPS. I do a lot of fishing inshore and offshore and have been talking about buying a smoker for a while. Hopefully it gets delivered soon because after seeing all the great foods you guys are turning out I can't wait to try some recipes.
