Hello Everybody, My name is Lance and I am new to the forums. I just bought a MES 30 and thought I would get in on the wealth of knowledge contained here. I have been grilling and smoking on my Charcoal Weber for a long time, but keeping temperatures low enough to smoke ribs and such can be a pain so that is why I got the MES. Gonna burn it in this weekend! I live in southern California, but originally hail from Stevens Point, WI. I will end by saying that I love meat and beer.
