Kansas Newbie

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, well I am a newbie here and to smoking from Salina, KS.  I received a Masterbuilt electric 40" smoker for my birthday and love it so far.  From what I have read on here so far, these are referred to as a MES, correct?  After my first attempt at ribs, I discovered that the smoker seems to cook at a higher temperature than the set point, at least compared to my cheap oven thermometer.  Does anyone else have this problem?  Anyways, I enjoy reading everyone's advice and recipes here and looking forward to smoking and trying new things.  I think summer sausage may be my next attempt!

We have an Articles section that is full of great information about smoking to include a lot of recipes and instructionals. Check it out there is a lot to learn in there!

You might want to check out Jeff's Free 5 day E-Course, it will teach you all the basics plus a whole lot more!

The MES is notorious for temps being off, your best bet is to get a good accurate digital thermometer like the Maverick ET-732 and go by it so you know for sure what temps you are smoking at.

welcome1.gifto SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 

 

We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

 

If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

 

If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
