Here is an update that I received from Cabela's about the product description:

I am happy to provide information on Cabela’s By MB 40” Black Smoker (item #552046).

1. Internal dimensions  34.07" x 20.38" x 12.70"

2. Rack type materials are Chrome Plated Steel

3. There are 6 Slots on the inside of the smoker

4. Built in meat probe

5. Sun shield over Blue LED display for easy viewing in direct sunlight

6. Thermostatically controlled temperature for consistent smoking up to 275 degrees.

7. Includes cover smoker recipe CD and sausage hanger

4-5 weeks wait isn't bad but I'm filling up the queue with Q ideas and getting antsy!
Yup----That's the Gen #2.5 Bluetooth.

That's the one I'm currently using, and I love it !!

Check this out for ideas to do with your MES:

Got it at Bass Pro Shop. Love it. Had it for about 5 yrs. I've smoked all kinds of product. Gonna get a Treager as well
 
Still new ... Do I need to soak my wood chips before putting them into my MES? Or can they go in dry?

That is a question open to extensive debate and opinions often come with the caveat "it depends". I recomend you try a couple different smokes both soaked and dry and see what you like. If you would like to read a majority of strong opinions on this and even a couple very scientific arguments for and against it I recommend reading through this thread! Good luck!

For an MES, the best thing to do is to leave the chips dry, in fact leave them in the bag.

Then get an AMNPS, fill it with Pellets, light it properly, put it in your MES, and sit back and enjoy perfect smoke for up to 11 hours without touching it.

I did it, I ordered a MES 40 thru Sams Club today. It is to arrive around Thursday.

Excited to have it here and do my first smoke.
 
Just got my MES 30 gen1 with window last Friday. Loving this thing.
Bought it at Home Depot new on clearance for 149.00 which was a great investment.

So far I have smoked
3 racks of baby back ribbed
Potatoes and beef sausage
2 tri tips
1 pork shoulder
12 bacon wrapped stuffed jalapeños

And it's all been so amazing.
Never got into smoking food before and I can not believe I didn't get one sooner.

Now I need to order an amnps. Prolly order it tomorrow, gonna do a brisket soon.

I just got mine and am looking forward to using it....I ordered a package deal with 4 different type of pellets....and the torch nozzle...

I have Jeff's book and have been able to answer a few questions I had.

A friend of mine smoked a rib roast, 2 turkey breasts and some boneless ribs....watched and learned a few other tips from him too.

Sorry didn't have a camera/cell with me. But everything tasted phenomenal and got to take some home!!! 
 
I made 10 pounds of jerky, this was only my second time using the MES 44 smoker, Jerky came out tasteless didn't have much flavor, I couldn't keep the temp down low enough so the meat taste like it was more cooked then dried, I hoping that was the problem since I make good jerky in a dehydrator and I bought the smoker to do jerky.

Check out this thread by a gentleman who sells jerky. He gave a step by step toward the end. Also if you search jerky you'll probably find a few others to help you out.

Thanks, I think the problem I have is the temp though, I tried to turn it down but then the wood wouldn't smoke, I do have a masterbuilt cold smoker that I rigged up to fit the smoker so I guess I will have to use that, But I still might get the A-Maze-N smoker since it doesn't have to be plugged in which is a pain for me.
