Hello all. My name is David and I am a new member living in Katy, Texas. I just purchased a MES 30 (digital). I used the web site prior to joining to perform my research and make my purchase decision (this site has already proven helpful). I'm am in the process of seasoning my new smoker and will probably throw some ribs on tonight just to get going.
I love cooking all types of foods and can't wait to add my smoker to the mix. I'm looking to learn how to smoke traditional meats as well as non-traditional food such as shrimp, burgers, pizza, etc.. I've seen a lot of interesting recipes thus far, have registered for the newsletter and continue to learn the site to try and develop an approach for learning the fundamentals of smoking along with how to most effectively use the type of smoker I have.
Thanks for allowing me to be a part of this community. I look forward to learning many things and meeting lots of good people along the way. I hope to eventually be able to help people as much as I am sure I will be helped. Any guidance on where to start is greatly appreciated. I will probably use the smoker recipe for ribs that came in my owner's manual. This will give me time to locate the recipe for my next adventure tomorrow.
