    This is one of those times when adding a location to your profile might help you as someone in your area might know of a deal close to you. Just saying. You don't have to give your address. Just a general location. It does help. With some 80 thousand members chances are someone in the know in your locale may know something that can help you find what you are looking for.

    Bear, I put mine on the foil covered drip pan on the left across from the heating element. No need to elevate, works great just lying there.
  9.  I understand your price point of 200.00 Think real hard about the MES 30 20070910. It is your basic entry level smoker. It has it's limitations, But it is as I said a good entry level smoker. It is the most popular model being a GEN 1  and they are still making it..  AMAZON will ship it for about 175.00 that price fluctuates a bit. Since you potentially like to get it from Bass pro they may stock or can get it for you. Just a thought from a 910 owner whose price point was 200.00  jted

    Cool !!

    I was just guessing on places to put it, going by the pics. LOL---You're cheating---You actually have a 2.5.

    I'm glad it works good there.

    It should only need elevating if set on the floor, to get air flow that low.

    I think the MES 40 is actually the most popular.

  12. Sounds like a lot of good advice !

    I'll make a poll post about size and see what people say.  I havent seen a poll in recent threads.  TY guys.
  14. I think you are right. I miss spoke on the popularity. But I think the 30 is the most purchased based on the SMF chart.

    I tried to find that chart the other day.

    If I remember correctly there were a bunch of different MES 40s to vote on, so the votes were spread out, instead of all MES 40 or MES 30.

    And you were only allowed to vote once, so I said I had an MES 30, and when I changed to MES 40, like all the others, I couldn't change what I had or preferred.

    If you find that thread, could you send me a link. Meanwhile I'll try some more.

    Thanks jted,

    OK---I found that old "Owner's" Poll.

    First of all, like I said once you voted, you couldn't vote again, and many guys who started with an MES 30 voted "MES 30", because that's the one they owned. Then when they moved up to an MES 40, they couldn't vote again.

    Here's the other interesting thing-----Below are the choices:

    Which one do you have??

    #1----MES 30

    #2----MES 40

    #3----MES 40 with window

    #4----MES 40 800 Watt

    #5----MES 40 1200 Watt

    So all the MES 40 owners were split among 4 categories & all of the MES 30 owners voted for one choice.

    Plus like I said---A lot of us made the mistake of getting an MES 30 first---Then getting an MES 40.

    So even in a real "Which do you own?" the MES 40 would currently win.

    Like I read on one of the old MES 30/40 threads:

    A lot of guys started with an MES 30, and moved on to an MES 40.

    However I never heard of anyone starting with an MES 40 and moving to an MES 30.

    Bear I would say the numbers are close enough to call it a tie (833 for 30" and 753 for 40"). You are definitely on to something about people buying the 30" first then getting a 40" (or at least wanting a 40" like I do).

    Well---Like I said my vote, along with many others went to the MES 30, so minus those from the 30 & add them to the 40. That old poll started 5 years ago.

    Anyway---That can't be proven easily, so this current poll on the new thread will show the real facts-----Not even close---MES 40 by a landslide. You'll see.

    Now if we can just get everybody out there to vote in the new poll.

    Here's the new Poll------So far the score is MES 40----12++++++++++MES 30----1
