My name is Justin, I'm new to the forums and new to smoking meats! I got a MES 30", one of the stainless window models with the newer heating elements and remote. I've already assembled it and seasoned it. My first attempt at smoking was a disaster, I had too much going on and managed my time poorly so I turned out some chicken breasts that tasted like a camp fire(too hot? and way too much smoke!) but I expected a little bit of a learning curve. I plan on my first attempt at a brisket tomorrow so we'll see how that goes! I look forward to learning from you guys, I can't wait to start pumping out delicious smoked goodies!
