My wife got tired of waiting for me to fix the burned up wiring ends in my MES 40, so she went out and bought me a new one. Now I have 2 non-working MES 40s (Gen 1) that someone can either rewire back to stock, or rewire to work with a PID. One of these just needs a new power cord spliced back on. Masterbuilt had me cut it off and send it back when they sent me a new replacement smoker. After multiple controller changes it wouldn't heat to a consistent temp. After moving, it seems that may have been more a problem with the wiring in my garage. If anyone's interested, just PM me here and make arrangements to pick up one, or both.
