I bought a Masterforge Propane Smoker at Lowe's and was disappointed with it. Too hard to get it to maintain a temp. Wish I found this place before then as I figured out the MES is probably the unit for me. Last week I won a little money on vacation at the Casino and ordered a MES that night from Cabela's since the Lowe's by me couldn't seem to get them in stock anymore. It arrived yesterday and I was disappointed to find it must be old stock as it did not have the built in meat thermometer. Good news is the other day I saw Lowe's finally had them in stock again and that Cabela's supplied a pre-paid return label! Cabela's smoker going back to them and going to pickup one of the MES with the thermo tonight. Will end up costing me a little money, but I get what I want! Can't wait!!
