Greetings from S. Texas!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Howdy, folks!  My name is Ed, livin' (in this HEAT) down here in Corpus Christi.  Just picked up a MES 40" from Academy.  I've always wanted one of these and juggled my research between this and the Bradley product.  I like the idea of using chips over pucks because I can ALWAYS get mesquite chips.

 

I've pit-smoked my share of briskets and pork butts but, in my "advancing" age, I'm trying to take it easy(er) now.  Spending a full day tending to a firebox is getting less and less appealing, especially in the summertime.

 

Looking forward to reading/learning from this site.  Give me a holler if you're in the area!

Spring, TX? DANG! You're in a PRETTY area of the state. Yeah, I spent a lot of time in "Aladdin's Castle"....oh....gads, I don't even want to say how long ago.  We still have great breakfast tacos, though - and some pretty good local tamale joints, too!  Thanks for the response.  I'll be doing a LOT of R&D on the MES 40.  Now to find some good deals on briskets & butts!
