    Looking to offload both of them for one price. I am not getting the results I like so I am moving to a UDS.

    The one that is all stainless stopped heating. I figured it for dead and my wife bought a new one. I later learned these things are noturious for a wiring issue that is a pretty simple fix so this may be all that's wrong with it as the display still works. Not guaranteeing anything. It has had a lot of smokes ran through it but I will have it as clean as possible.

    The other one works fine. It has a stainless door and a black cabinet. It has the window in the door and a built in meat probe. It has had only 4 smokes, one of those was to season it. The chip loader had that divider in it but it got hung up in the smoker and I had to force it out damaging the divider. I simply tack welded a half circle piece in place making the loader work the same as before.

    Both smokers have little dings or scratches, I swear they ship that way, but are in good shape otherwise. Well except the one that quit working.

    Ask any questions you have. I feel it is a good price for them both even with the one not heating. If it is a simple wire fix you could have 2 nice smokers for the price of one.

    Smokers are in Topeka. I can deliver for a fee.

    I would suggest that before you give up completely you get an A MAZE N SMOKER and give it a try- almost everyone who had tiried it swears by it. I have one that I use in my SmokinTex and I love it - just a thought they are only $30

    I have gotten good results, just not consistently good. I got into smoking with the MES due to ease of use but I want to go more with a wood / charcoal fuel source now. I briefly thought about propane but I choose to grill with charcoal over propane because I like the flavor more, so I figure the same must be true about smoking. I would keep my electrics but the other issue is money. I have these 2 smokers that were rather expensive purchases and if I want to build a UDS or reverse flow I need to sell these or so says my wife. :o)  I know you can build a UDS on the cheap, but I have a few ideas to take it to a higher level and ideas take money.

    Great offer , great price, but if i was in need of one the shipping would kill me.

    Good luck on the sale.
