So this is my second smoke on my MES 30". Formerly ECB and Char broil silver smoker. The MES is a godsend.
Anyway, my first smoke went well, but the fire jumped the maze. So I thought I would on do 1 1/2 columns for #2 so it didnt jump again. Then this happened, again. Am I doing something wrong?
As you can see, it didnt start on the unlit... until the column next to it was right there. I have the MES chip cylinder pulled out about an inch and took out the chip tray from inside. Food came out great, but its not going to last for a whole smoke and I am wasting the pellets at this point.
