    Never go got a call back so i guess i'll call back Monday morning.. I did do the initial 3hr at 275 and the last 45mins smoked some chips.. that smell was awesome.. can't wait to try smoking a butt on Sunday.. Im gonna get it ready tomorrow and let it sit in the fridge overnight before i start early Sunday morning.. :)

    How much was your shipping costs, if you don't mind? This is $195 cheaper than retail, so even after customs if I drive across the border to a US mail service I could see some significant savings.

    My cost was $162 and an additional $28 shipping to central Missouri.

    Hmm, so total savings for me would be about $170 all in, definitely worth the drive. More than I can expect should it go on sale here. Looks like I may be crossing the border soon.

    $30 USD shipped to NY, $60 USD to my house in Ontario. After all the associated costs, shipping to NY would save me $7 USD. Definitely worth $7 not to deal with border crossings and an hour and a half of driving. Direct to my house it comes! Ordering it today.

    i got busy yesterday but i just got off the phone.. the operator i spoke with last Friday called me and apologized for not getting back to me sooner.. they are sending me replacement parts and to compensate me for the dents and damage they are going to send me a few accessories that they carry.. I am fine with that and I appreciate they got back to me about it so quickly.. those parts and accessories will ship out tomorrow i should have them by the end of the week.. 

    I did however smoke my first pork butt over the weekend.. i will probably start a new thread and post pics :) what started at 3am on sunday morning.. ended up hitting 195 degrees at 1:30 that afternoon.. and my wife and son went on a picnic and i threw the butt into a cooler and went.. it was still super hot and oh so tasty at our picnic.. :D  

    thanks again everyone for sharing the information about the MES from Masterbuilt directly.. i love my unit..

    Hi all,

    Found this thread searching for a smoker the other day. Thanks for the info, I ordered one yesterday!  It came out to $150 +$50 shipping to the Portland, OR area. As previously mentioned, they only have red in stock (model 20076716).

    That's Great !!

    Masterbuilt  CS has been Awesome for quite some time now.

    I don't know if you saw this yet, but it could be a help to you.

    All Smokes were done on an MES:

    Just click on "Bear's Step by Steps".

    Took an extra day to get the order in but it's now on its way! They must be selling out, there was no mention of colour choice to me. After factoring in all expenses I saved about $140 vs buying it in store. Hopefully it doesn't get caught up in customs for six weeks.

    I too ordered a red one this morning. It was $210 shipped to Columbia, MO. I've been lurking this forum for quite some time but just recently pulled the trigger and bought my first smoker.

      Interested in how much the charges are for brokerage fees and taxes.

    I'll let you know. I thought they were charged to the sender but apparently that changed Feb 27th. According to the FedEx website it should be $7 CAD.
