Hi, I wanted to stop in and let you know that I just bought my MES 30 with window(never stays clear enough to see in) but, I have been reading and checking out the website all week, yesterday I finally made a decision and started out with 2 whole chickens. I used the brine mixture suggested on the site, and my own spices and let me tell you, after a painstaking(because I was hungry and the smoke smelled sooo good) 3.5 hours, they were they best chickens I have EVER tasted, my husband thought from the sounds I was making when first trying the chicken, that I was going to replace him. He can be the "grillmaster", but, I will be the "smokemaster" in this household. I am planning to make some stuffed hamburgers, wrapped in bacon for dinner tonight along with some smoked corn. Forgot to take pics last night, because of being so excited will try to remember tonight. BTW this is the first and only site i have checked out, and do not feel that I need to go to any other site for any info. This is the most informative site, and if I have any ??? I know that I can check out the forums and that I can probably find any answers I need there. Thanks for making this easy and fun!!
