MES 30 MAILBOX MOD HELP! - Page 2
SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
Finally got time to finish up my mod.
I removed the chip tray assembly all together, made a little bracket to hold my ceramic tile above the element, and piped up the box. I didn't have to add any holes to the box and I seem to get a good burn rate with my amnps. Awsome mod I love it!!
I tested it out with a fatty over the weekend which turned out great. My mes 30 seemed to be holding temp pretty good over the weekend. thermo read 246 as did my digital display on the unit, I guess I got lucky with this one.
Nice Job, I like the Kubota orange!
I did cheese in mine Wednesday night for the first time with the mailbox. It was 66* when I started and 71* two hours later. I'm so happy to be able to do warm weather cheese again!
Freeze up some jugs of water if you're worried. I've done that and it works better than ice cubes. I put the cheese in cold from the fridge and it actually lowered the smoker temp a few degrees. I did 6 pounds so I've got enough to do me for awhile. :)
