MES just doesn't match the old ECB

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have had my MES since November, done several (not enough) smokes but the smoke flavor is just not as good as what I got in my old ECB.

 

I have to give credit where credit is due, the Masterbuilt Tech here has been great, they have sent me a new controller (wouldn't function under 32f) & a new smoker box.  Now I have the larger tray & can put larger chunks in the beginning of the smoke.

 

Done a few turkeys (smoke/fry), shoulders & ribs.

 

Any suggestions?

 

I may have to go back to the ECB during the warm months & the MES when it is cold if I can't figure it out.

 

Thanks in advance to all the fine contributors here.

I use an AMNPS in my mes 40.  Puts out great smoke.  If I want more smoke for something, I just light both ends.  I've actually made a couple of things too smokey in my experimentation.

If the ECB was a charcoal smoker, the taste will never be the same.

 

You give up a little taste for a whole lot of convenience.

 

I had a MES for a couple of years & never had any complaints about the food it produced.

 

Like Ron says, try an AMNPS.

The ECB is electric. 

 

I will keep stabbing at it, I will be doing a shoulder this weekend.

 

Thanks.
