Hello everybody from Iowabuckeye. My name is a combo of growing up in Ohio, moving to Iowa and currently on the Illinois side of the river. My brother in Florida (also on this forum) is pushing me in with both feet with his success this past year using the MES 30. Seeing as it's exactly 4 degrees outside at the moment, I'm hopeful I can extend my good smoking calendar quite a bit. Current grilling lineup includes a Weber kettle, a 5 burner main gas grill, charcoal vertical bullet, and just now adding a MES to my collection. I'm already finding everybody's discussions useful. Thanks!
