From Cincinnati. Just got a 30" MES for Christmas. Seasoned it earlier this week and tried it out for the first time yesterday. I did 3 racks of baby backs at 225 using pecan chips with varying degrees of smoke: 3-2-1, 2-2-1, and 5 with no wrap. My wife and we in lock step with the results. 2-2-1 didn't have enough smoke flavor for us. 3-2-1 was nice and smoky, very tender. 5 unwrapped was our favorite. More tooth to the meat but we would gladly sacrifice a little tenderness for the great smoky flavor.
