Received an emergency work order last night.
I bought a pork butt and a couple of baby back rib racks last night, then realized my element in my MES had took a crap.
I almost bagged the whole holiday smoker delicacies when an ingenious thought came to mind: I needed a heating element… where can a heating element be had on a holiday weekend? Well, I just happen to have a crapped out old milk-house electric stand up heater (1200Watt).
Worked late last night tearing apart the heater and the MES and came up with a setup that is chugging along just fine right now, getting the job done until I can order an upgrade 1200watt element from Master Built.
Got the AMAZN fired up with pecan, got the milk-house MES smoking away, life is good!
BTW: Safety moment… I am watching this thing close just in-case an emergency shutdown is in order. I am only using this thing once to get me through the weekend.
Happy Labor Day 2013
MES EWO CLOSED!
