Getting ready to get an MES 40 gen II and a Maverick ET-733 temp probe (or two). A couple years ago I got a Grillpro Propane Cabinet Smoker and I’m in a windy area and have problems keeping the thing lit for low and slow so I’m hoping this smoker will work well despite some of the flaws. I'll be getting the warranty for the 2 years. My wife got some baby-back ribs. Getting the fever for smoking back after not doing much last year. Plus this winter has been too cold, minus 28°F was too cold for me . I'm still kind of new at it but I'm on the right forum to get the info I need. Thanks to all who took time to put their experiences here to help us new guys out.
