Well I picked up my new MES30 with probe from Cabelas Sunday. I started to get it ready for seasoning. In doing so I noticed that the door wasn't sealing right. Luckily I was able to take the cover off the hinge and found the 3 screw were loose. I tightened them and all is well. We are having a cold spell so I hope maybe I'll be able to season it later this week, and start my smoking adventure this weekend.

I put a light inside to see the gap. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
