I have an MES 40 electric. I recently bought it. I have always smoked meat on a trailer mounted 8 ft. smoker. I found with it that if after a days cooking and the grease gets all down inside I clean all the renderings and meat droppings out I heat the pit up to about 300 degrees, open the pit and splash about !/4 cup water inside. close the door and all the vents it creates steam inside and completely "sterilizes" the inside. Pit is clean, no more odors and I am ready for next cook. If I did this with the MES would it work?
