  1. Hello new friends! Been enjoying the many articles you have all shared and finally decided to take part in your awesome community.

    I got a masterbuilt MES 30 that's a couple years old now. For the first year it really sat in a storage closet after a failed brisket attempt (point end). I got really discouraged I guess lol-

    After that I put a little time and effort into researching how to make some great ribs. After countless racks I have really settled into my zone with St Louis and baby backs and now I'm ready to evolve my game a bit. AMNPS is in the mail from amazon as it is highly recommended from the forum so I thought I'd give it a go---maybe some mods in the future- mailbox looks interesting.

    My in laws have a herd of cows and after helping butcher I came home with some free range, grass fed, organic beeeeeef. Got a flat, a point, a rib roast (or prime rib as it's affectionately referred to) and a couple slabs of short ribs. Also got a couple other shoulder roasts I might give a go.

    I guess the big thing I need to invest in next is a good thermometer for inside the rig. It has the built in one but I don't think it's too reliable. I mean I NEVER clean it Cuz I never use it HA!I'd be surprised if it ain't stuck to the inside permanently.

    Thermometer suggestions, recipe ideas around my mentioned cuts, and a general howdy-do are all much appreciated. It's a pleasure to meet you all and thanks for giving my intro thread a look.

    Smoker pic coming soon!
