Longer smoke time in MES40

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi - 

 

I'm new to smoking and just bought an MES40 based on a lot of reviews from this site.

 

I seasoned it on Wednesday and was surprised at how quickly the smoke from the chips dissipated. Is there a way to use chunks? What do you do to get the smoke to last longer? 

 

I'm planning to smoke a brisket on Saturday and would like to not have to replace chips every 30 minutes (if possible).

 

Thanks in advance for any input - I'm looking forward to learning more about smoking through you all.

Hi Nathanael,

 

The best bet for getting good long smoke on your electric is to make a small investment in an Amaze-N-Pellet Smoker or the standard saw dust smoker.  These are available through one of our members, Todd Johnson (TJohnson - screen name).  He advertises on the site (Amaze-N Products).

 

Todd's devices will give you a nice thin blue smoke for long enough to get a good smokey flavor on whatever it is you are smoking.

 

Good luck,

 

Bill

Hi Bill -

Thanks for responding! That's what I was gathering from reading the forum.

Can I use wood chunks with it or should I buy some pellets?

Also, any tips for longer burning with this weekend's smoke?

I would get the AMNPS if it were me. The AMNS is made to burn sawdust & the AMNPS to burn pellets but it will burn dust as well. Definitely get pellets with it - it's not made to burn chunks. Todd has a 20% off sale going on right now for SMF members so it's the perfect time to stock up  Thumbs Up

 

As far as the longer smoke time with your MES I'm afraid I can't help you with that - the only time I used chips in mine was to season it. I break out the AMNPS every time I use my MES - both hot & cold smoking. If you get one you will be very happy with it  :beercheer:
