Hi I'm Dave. New here, old everywhere else.
Just bought a MB 30" electric unit the other day. Seasoned it according to the directions and am just about ready to do some smokin'.
First electric smoker, but have owned/used different types before. Favority was my trusty Old Smokey 18", but I'm tired of babysitting it and thought I'd try the MB unit.
Directions indicate to turn the unit On at Max heat to pre-heat the innards for 30-45min. Yes? Once I open to load, gonna lose all that heat....seems counter-productive.
Pre-heat with smoke, right?
Smoking a small trimmed brisket and will use low heat..200-225dg.
Later in the day will add a rack of pork ribs and a few Kreuz sausage rings.
Using Oak with a handfull of Hickory chips for smoke. No water.
Any tips using this MB 30"?
