I Agree with everything David said.
Also: Smoking is a problem if people use too much smoke, but as you & most others on this forum know, it's not how long you smoke that is bad, it's how heavy you smoke. You could do most of your cooking in the oven, and then smoke for just a short time with too heavy a smoke, and it would still taste terrible like licking a chimney.
Also putting pellets directly on an MES element is not recommended by Masterbuilt, as we all know.
It's not how much or how often you smoke that is bad for you, it is "How" you smoke that could be bad for you.
The name of the Game is "TBS" !!! TBS !! TBS !
Bear, I'm still getting to know the lingo. "TBS"? I can't figure that one out. LOL
