Here is my Merry Christmas from the Wife Unit

Discussion in 'Electric Smokers' started by ewetho, Dec 3, 2011.

  1. It is an MES30 Model 2007011 featuring two shelves and a 1800 Watt element. Should be fun.

    Oh and according to the thermometer, the water boils in my house (at an of elevation approximately 500 ft) at a grand 250 degrees! Yeah!

    This is the one that was at Gander Mountain for ~$100. My first Smoker. Yet to be seasoned and cook but Christmas is coming soon enough.

    Here is the Outside


    And the insides too

    just take a chub of Jimmie Deans Breakfast Sausage and throw it in there... Nice score for a $100
  16. Well seasoning is done. Supposed to let it run for 3 hours with last 45 minutes of smoke. I gave up waiting and added the wood chips for 3 hours after 1 hour of heat. Had smoke till the end when I put water on the chips to put them out, but it never got that hot. The manual electric only has a dial and Low-Med-High and was supposed to be done on Med and I went to Med-High. I know the gage reads high (water bath tested) so just under 225 is not very hot when measuring boiling water it was a 250. I was on an extension cord and from previous research on this site I am sure I need a better (heavier gauge) one and will see what happens then.

    Here is the seasoning run.


    Good amount of smoke when the door opens.


    Was still smoking after at least 3 full hours on top of the burner. I did soak them per the directions.


    Old No. 7 Brand does have a distinct odor. Nice! Got to like a whiskey cask for wood chips.
