Lol, the first piece I tasted out of the smoker was pretty salty, but it was that very thin belly piece, so that's to be expected. The thicker pieces were just nice.
My MES is an older 40 inch digital, I've had it for about 4-5 years now, caught it on an end-of-season markdown at Sams club for $119 (don't hate me!)
Since I was cooking here in Fl with an ambient temp between 83 and 91 today during my smoking time, it was hard to keep the temp low at the beginning, (the AMNPS alone will hold my pre-heated smoker at 120), The majority of the smoking was done between 120 and 140, bumping it up toward the end to get the +140 finish temp. About 5 hours total.
Still fighting with my Maverick ET-732 and my smoker, the Maverick keeps reading 10-20 degrees higher, got to keep playing with probe placement, I suppose...
And yes, filled the AMNPS 1/2 full, was still smoking when I was done...
