My First Smoke... I'm Sorry

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok, so i made up my mind and bought an MES30 (#20071910) on Sunday. I seasoned it yesterday, way more than the company recommended just to be sure i seasoned it good enough.
This afternoon I rubbed a chicken down, put it in the smoker with some apple chips, and waited. In a little under 2 hours the IT was at 167 in the breast.
The chicken turned out fantastic! Great tasting, moist and just about perfect... But this is where I have to apologize. I didnt have time to take any pics... NO Q-VIEW. I am sorry, i will make sure to do better next time.
Thanks to all in the past threads. I read a lot of them! They gave me the knowledge i needed to make my first smoke a great success!
Thank You!

Glad your first bird turned out great for you!  thumb1.gif  You will soon be trying to smoke everything you can get your hands on  biggrin.gif

 

As far as the no Q-view goes since you are new here you can have a free pass this time  tongue.gif

Glad your first smoke turned out great. I believe you've now got the bug and the only way to kill it is to smoke, smoke, and smoke more.
