Hello, I sort of put the cart before the hours. i bought the ribs and pork tenderloin but have been reviewing smokers for 2 days. would like to get some expert opinions and advice. Any feedback would be awesome. Whats the 4th of July without Ribs and meat. Juicy smoked to be exact. I have been himmin and hawing over the MES 30" digital bluetooth. or a WSM 18.5". I know MES only comes with the 800w element and the WSM would prob be better as the 22.5". but just starting out i do not know which way to go. i love the ease of set it and forget it. but also like the thought of getting out of the house with 2 screaming kids(girls) and drinking beer and tending the smoker. Although i know this may not always be possibly. Thanks in advance for even looking at my post!
