Yes----You should purchase a 5" X 8" AMNPS----You'll not regret it.
Either an AMNS or an AMNPS. The first is for only cold smoking and the second is for both cold and heat smoking. I never mind adding the wood chips when needed when I smoke with heat so I only got the AMNS to smoke cheese, nuts, spices and other stuff you don't want to cook. If you don't want to bother adding chips all the time and have a consistent generation of smoke for 6+ hours then by all means get the AMNPS. The AMNS uses wood dust, comes in two sizes and depending on which one you get can last for 8+ hours of smoke and the AMNPS uses pellets.
AMNS = A-MAZE-N SMOKER
AMNPS = A-MAZE-N PELLET SMOKER
I definitely recommend the pellet version. Unless you do a lot of cheese and need the cold smoke capability, it's the way to go. The MES, Maverick wireless thermo and AMNPS. The combo is a perfect match.
Bear convinced me on this AMPS business with my MES. It arrived this week and going to use it this weekend. I also bought a few different pellets.
Now just contemplating what to smoke. Ribs.. Brisket... Did Butt last week so thats out.... Hey ... Turkey maybe?
Chicken legs and thighs.

Check out the Home Page and you'll find an article on SMF acronyms.
Also, in the Forums section, under Announcements the first drop down is Roll Call. Stop by and let us know a little about you and your smokin' projects.

My 30" Analog MES.
Top rack Memphis dry rub St Louis cut, other two are spares with Jeff's rub, pecan chips in the box. Yum!
Nice Ribbage!!! Top ones look like Beef Ribs.
No Bear, they're Swift Premium pig ribs.
Been wanting to find a good Memphis rub recipe and got lucky on this one. The on ly way I could have gotten closer to Chili's would have been to have my buddy's daughter snag me some from the one where she works.
DAUUUM That looks good !
Those ribs look mighty tasty, got to where I do all my ribs St. Louie style.SS
I bought mine about two years ago! I love to do small meals (5-6) people. I bought it at gander mountain for 150 I believe with $20 mail in rebate. Really couldn't turn it down at that price. I'm currently working on building a 275 gallon tank smoker/cooker with an offset FB and a slide out coal tray just in case in want to use it as grill.
I got mine, a MES 30 and wish now I had the MES 40 like Bearcarver says. Had mine for a few months and just love it. I'm still learning BTW.
My MES 40 1200W quit working in the middle of the smoke....electronics just quit! Saved the butts (finished in the oven) and went and got an electric Smoke Hollow.
Took a while to get the temp adjusted where I wanted but if the element goes out on it at least its easy to replace AND no electronics to fail.
My MES was only about a year old....never got wet.
Don't think I will buy from Masterbuilt again.
Same thing happened to my Buddy's Chevy. I told him to get a Horse & Buggy---No electronics there.
get the AMazin pellet smoker -----it is a great addition
you will see it mentioned often on the forum (AMNPS)
