    Hey everyone,

    I want to thank all of you for making this past Thanksgiving the best one ever at my house.  I've been lurking here for quite some time and have learned a ton from all of you.  I have tried smoking in the past with a ecb but it was such a pain in the butt for me that I hardly took the time to fire it up, so after tons of reading and discussing the benefits with my wife I stepped up to the plate and got the MES 40 from Sam's.  It is one of the best things I have ever bought.  Waiting on the chip box upgrade, but it still turns out awesome food.  I'm also hoping there is a amnps in my stocking soon.

    So far everything I have tried from you guys has blown me and my family away.  We have done pp with Jeff's rub and the finishing sauce, my wife's personal favorite.  Brined a couple turkeys up with slaughterhouse and they are awesome, also have done some spatchcock birds and a ham.  I will try to get on the ball and start snapping pics soon.  My avatar is the mes on thanksgiving, those foil pans are a life saver for clean up.  Turkeys got smoked the day before and warmed up in the morning.

    Anyhow Thanks everyone for sharing all of your knowledge, I look forward to getting more involved here.  Here are a few misc. things I've learned from here.  Dang it my mouth is watering like crazy now, I gotta find some meat now before anyone gets hurt lol.


    Oh yeah I was gonna tell you I just got an email about my mes, and they linked me to smf for more info on the mes.  Thought that was pretty cool.

    BigCase, it's sounds like you got bit by the smoke bug big time.  Sorry to tell you that there is no known cure for it except to feed it - often!

    Your q-view looks great and it's a good thing I had just finished eating my lunch or else my stomach would be chewing on my back bone. Great Job all the way around!

    Enjoy the Smoke!
