So, I just recently got into smoking and am hooked. 100% hooked. I ended up going with the Masterbuilt propane as my first smoker but didn't put a lot of thought into the purchase. I like it but I will most likely upgrade at some point to a "real" smoker. But, for the interim I'm gonna have a lot of fun with my current smoker. But, one thing that I've noticed, is that I want to smoke two things at one time and temps, etc. don't always align with the two smokes. So having a second smoker isn't a bad thing -- come on guys, you 've been there before. So, here's where I'm at. I recently learned of a really good deal on a used MES30 like the one below: https://foxandgrapes.co/products/ma...tal-electric-smoker-with-leg-kit-cover-and-gl Should I get it? I'm leaning towards a heck yeah right now. I know that there are several posts on here about how to tell if it's a version 1 or version 2 or 2.5. And @Bearcarver has given several great posts on how to tell them apart. But I'm not sure that my decision will be based on version number. Just more of an issue of how I'm gonna slide this smoker in beside my grill and current smoker without too much hassle from the wife.
