Ok so this was my first smoke with my MES30 and it just so happened that I had a London broil in the fridge so away it went.
I marinated for a little over 24 hours with
1 cup soy sauce
¾ cup Dark brown sugar
¼ cup A-1 sauce
4 tsp Tapatio (IE hot sauce)
2 tsp Black pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
I wanted to inject as well so I left a bit without the black pepper so it wouldn’t clog my needle (over sized ones we use at work in food processing)
I heated up my brand spanking new MES30 (already seasoned) to 220°F and added some wood and away we went! I cooked the meat until the internal temperature was 138°F. I lowered the temp in the smoker to 150°F at let the meat set in there for about 40 extra minutes because I cooked it much faster than I originally thought. Once we were about ready to eat I threw the meat on the gas grill on high just to make it a bit crispy.
I was really supprised how fast this thing cooks, for some reason the mentality was low and slow meant 2-4 hours not 90 minutes. Maybe it’s just the warm California weather; I don’t know it was only 70°F that day.
