Well howdee Navman, pleasure to meet you.
I could tell you about the awesome search engine and how its loaded up with unbelievable amounts of info on all things. Maybe tell you about the Gurus around here who will help and guide you in your smoking endeavors, or possibly the great folks just to discuss insights with or who will keep you inspired. But I won't, guessing you already realized it all.
My only words of wisdom, take notes, I know it sounds silly, its not nuclear engineering but the notes allow you to remember what you did, how you did it, and what you need to research or what you want to tweak after hearing another solution to the same thing. If you don't now where you were you'll never get where you want to go. besides what if you got the perfect smoke the first time and couldn't duplicate it?
But this is the howdee section and I do get long winded don't I?
Enjoy the boards, enjoy the smoke and don't ever stress over it, its supposed to be relaxing and fun.
Enjoy the smoke and welcome to my addiction.
BTW I have a MES 30 and like it, you know its good when you wish you'd bought the 40 for more space!
