I am still a little new to smoking and look forward to learning more about making some great BBQ. Until recently, I had a Charbroil smoker with a side fire box. I was pretty successful with the Charbroil and had some good smokes. However, I found I didn't smoke often as I didn't have the time to babysit it all day.
After a lot of lurking on the site, as well as a lot of research, I recently ordered a MES 30 (20070910) and AMNPS. I hope this new setup will give me as close to "set-it-and-for-get-it" as possible and will give me more opportunities to smoke more often.
