Hello everyone. I am new to the forum and new to meat smoking in general. I have been browsing the forum for quite some time now and finally decided I would join up on the forum. I have been seriously contemplating purchasing my first smoker and it seems the MBES seems to get relatively good reviews for a newbie. I am looking for something simple to start and learn with. Specifically looking to smoke pork, chicken, ribs, and maybe even some jerky. My question for all of you more experienced guys is would you recommend the MBES for what I have described above? If not please feel free to let me know which you would recommend. Thanks in advance fro the help.
