Ok..I cant be the only one with this issue.
When i add chips , any flavor, any size, dry not wet.., the smoke fires up white and strong. I have the retro kit on my MES 40 unit, but it seems the element is so hot , it just burns chips right now. I have used a full tray to 2 pieces and it has no nice aroma. My boss brought in pork from some small infrared smoker and it tasted awesome...i just get this meat that tastes like im licking the inside of a briquette.
