    Thanks guys. Mostly looking for something to smoke sausage. Couldn't beat the price at tad over $200. Been wanting to make smoked sausage for a while. Is there a version 3? I called the company and she said it's a v3 (?). Looking forward to sausage and bacon!

    Bob that MES40 you have in the link appears to be version 2.0....MES40  V 2.5 has the Bluetooth....from what little I've read here is you want to stay away from the 2.0....There is no 3.0 that I know of yet....I've been checking various smokers out trying to determine what I want to get for my first smoker  MES40 2.5 is on the short list....

    Do the Gen 2 have vents on either the top or side?  I thought the side vent was the biggest complaint on Gen 2.  This has a top vent.[​IMG]
