I just bought a mes 30 from Amazon and haven't fired it up yet. The "seson instructions have me confused. Here they are " Preseason smoker prior to first use. Make sure water pan is in place with NO WATER. Set
temperature to 275°F (135°C) and run unit for 3 hours. Shut down and allow to cool. Some smoke
may appear during this time, this is normal.
During last 45 minutes, add 1 cup of wood chips in chip loader to complete preseasoning.
My question is the last line "add 1 cup of wood chips to the LOADER" ?
Do I turn the loader and put the chips into the woodchip HOLDER, or leave them in the LOADER ?
I feel like a kid the week before Christmas. Always loved to cook, then a woman at work was going to buy her husban a mes for Christmas. That's all it took and I'm hooked before I even start. :-) Thanks for your help.
