Hello, my name is backporch and I'm a chain smoker. I'm from Gillsville,GA. I was introduced to smoke by my cousin about 6 yrs ago. I'm here because I can't quit. I'm addicted. I started on an old home made propane tank with a fire box. It was too big for small smokes so I got me a brinkman. Wore it out. I got me another one. Wore it out. So for CHRISTmas 2011. My wife bought me an analog masterbuilt electric smoker. We smoke boston butts and hams every year for bbq and brunswick stew at our church's fall festival. I've smoked hams, turkeys, tenderloin, chicken, and hot wings on my brinkmans but this masterbuilt is a whole different ballgame. I'm just trying to find out from others what I'm doing wrong. Looks like there are folks on here with alot more experience than me so I decided to join up and get some pointers.

Welcome to the SMF Family...Give some more detail on how the meat is coming off the MES...For instance, you would have gotten a good Smoke Ring of your other smokers but that ain't going to happen with the MES...JJ

Hello Backporch and welcome to SMF! I have an MES 40 (digital) and I absolutely love it! But as Chef Jimmy said "you won't get a smoke ring" because it's electric. What kind of problems you having?
