I have read about the accessories I need to buy to add on and have done so. I have the AMNPS 5X8 shipping out to me any day, I will be ordering the ET 732 once I get paid again but I have no idea how to set these things up and actually use them. I have read threads on setting them up but I still feel completely lost. I also don't know if I need water in the pan, use pellets or wood (how much), when to add these things along the way. Again I have never smoked anything in my life and I am a complete greenhorn. A video would be really cool if a master of the MES 40 has time to put something like that together it would be appreciated by us rookies. Thanks to everyone that contributes to make these forums easier for newbies.
