    Have roughly 4 1/2 pounds of marinated London Broil in my MES 30" smoker. Hand sliced the meat to roughly 1/4" then marinated. Used a recipe John Meyer posted awhile back. Have 1/2 mild recipe and the rest with some kick to it. Things have been in the smoker about 3 hours so far, have been adding Cherry Wood with a touch of Pecan to smoke, and have the temp at 170. Started at 155 for the first 2 hours to dry the meat. So far things look and smell ok. Below are my first few photos of progress so far. From what I've been seeing here in the forum I'm going to let things smoke for several more hours before I even think about taking anything out of the smoker.
    1) First bag of meat when I first took it out the frig and drying.

    2) Starting the drying process.
