I recently bought a MES 30 from Lowes and cycled a few racks of BB Ribs last weekend and a Brisket. The ribs I did the 3-2-1 method and the Brisket I smoked for 4 hours then another 5 hours no smoke. Both came out pretty darn good for a first timer. My question is have any of you used charcoal in your electric and got that good old smoke taste?
Also instead of using chips do any of you use chunks? Sorry for the lack of info...I did get a good smokey flavor I just was wondering if by using say mesquite woods chip along with charcoal would the combo of the two give it a different "BETTER" smokey flavor? I am using the element for the heat source.
What smoking methods/combos have you all used and what was your outcome?
Any feedback is much appreciated. Happy Smoking
