    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.

    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.

    Nice Ribbage!!!   Top ones look like Beef Ribs. [​IMG]

  12. 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.

    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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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. [​IMG]
