I have went back and fourth on this for a while. I can get a MES 340g at the local SamsClub for $330 or I could order the Smoke Tronix for 445.00 at Walmart.com or Home Depot. I like one with a stand because I’m 6ft6 lol. I’ve owned a Masterbuilt before it lasted me a long time. I like to use the AMPS tray to. I don’t know how it would work on the Smoke Tronix. Any thought or advice Eric

I just bought one last weekend as well. Going to use my AMNPS for long smokes.
I was planning on pulling off the back, flipping the heating element over, and either using hi-temp wire, or put a hi-temp sheath around existing wiring.

I’m leaning toward the MES40 at least I know what I’ve got. I like the Smoke Tronix looks I’ve heard good and bad

My Local sam's (Cleveland Area) had them at an end of season price lower than the $330. An offer I couldn't refuse. I assume different areas of the country may or may not have that price.

Hey Eric,
Sorry to high jack your thread, but I saw you were from Maryville. I was just through there last week on my way from Tyson-McGhee to Townsend. Saw this on the side of 321 and had to stop. I was parched....

Oh okay

lol ya that is on 321 going to the Mtns. Hope you had a good time.
We had a great time. The local folks were very hospitable, and the Smokies were nice though they hadn't turned to fall colors yet. Good luck with your new smoker.

I got the Smoke Tronix - the stand with the wheels sure is nice. I also like the Fast Smoke feature to get it kicked off and/or when I add chips which I understand the MES does not have.

This is my first smoker, so I don't have much to compare it to, but I am really happy with it. I seriously run all the controls off the bluetooth app - I havent even used the buttons on the unit itself.

Here's two videos I made of it:



Let me know if you have any questions on the SmokeTronix - I actually got mine for super cheap at a summer end close-out.
