Just bought a MES 30 (20070910) today and I'm reading all about this free retro-kit, and problems with loading wood chips.  Does anyone know that the model numbers are required in order to get the free retro-kit?  Also I'm smoke ribs tonight at 225 just wondering after an hour should the wood chips be just charred or be ashes?   Thanks
