    hi, i have an old fridge i'm working on and i also have a cajun elec. smoker that the heating unit just went out on...i called the masterbuilt people and she said they longer built that smoker and had no parts/burners..650 w....so i asked what else could i do and she said that she would sell me the new masterbuilt smoker with glass door 1000 w for 175.00 ...no mention of and i'm sure i wouldn't have to turn my old one in..i hope ....what do they need it for?   anyway i think that may be the way i go...also...my question is seeing as i have a cajun smoker i can do nothing with...i was wondering if i could take the controls and mod them to my fridge smoker with the 1500 w brickman burner?  if not why not? also anyone see why i can't take the wood chip box and everything that goes with it....also the wood chute?  i know going from 650w to 1500w is asking alot...maybe i could resize the wires..any thoughts?   i feel like they spent a lot of time and money to come up with those great idea's i may as well use them...literally ....ty so much for your replys....Billy

    You might want to ask them how much for the MES 40", it has the 1250 watt element and is very popular with the members here.  With it you don't have to worry about cutting a slab of ribs in half to get it to fit...

    The new model that just came out has wheels and a remote thermometer built in also.
