Hi Folks... Love this site and just had to join.
I started smoking 4 years ago and cut my teeth on a small side by side charcoal unit given to me by a friend. I learned alot with it, some mistakes proved costly in time and $ but gained some valuable experience along the way. After a year of that I got a vertical charcoal Brinkmann, I enjoyed that too and turned out some great product but maintaining of coals and temp grew frustrating.
Two years ago I stumbled on a MES30 display model at Home Depot $79 and could not pass it up. I knew nothing about it but quickly learned to love it. I have amazed myself , friends and family with great ribs, chicken, fattys and my favorite... brisket... ever since.
Look forward to expanding my knowledge from y'all!
