Morning!! Started out early today. Wanted to get the butt in the MES and make sausage. The sausage turned out good. Rubbed the butt Thurs nite. Here it is today. Cranked the smoker to 230 and let it warm up. Loaded the AMZEN with hickory and a little cherry mixed in from yesterdays wing smoke. Lined the water bowl and added water and apple juice. Put it in. Still learning how to get all things working together, learn something new each smoke. Three hours later the meat is at 136 the MES is holding 226 and the AMAZEN is smoking steady.. Life is good so far today. The only thing that I dont like is the et-73 doesn't make it 25 feet. I guess I will call them and get another one. Looking good! More pics as this continues. Have a great day !!!
