Newb smoker here and just got a MES30. Seasoned it per instruction manual and everything went well until I added wood chips for last 45 minutes. I never saw smoke. I turned up temp to max for another 30 min and still no smoke. I could smell a very faint smoke smell and when opening door there was a small amount of smoke but not what I expected. After turning it off and letting it cool down the chips in the tray were slightly black but not all the way. Should I be concerned about this for the seasoning process?
My AMNPS should be here on Thursday but I want to smoke something tomorrow. Also have a Maverick ET-732 on the same order as the AMNPS.
BTW - I have enjoyed reading all the info on this forum.
