I need some advice.
Will be using the MES 30 for sausage, snack sticks and smoked cheese only.
Smoker came yesterday. Last night I by-passed the digital relay and it will now
be controlled by a PID.
Totally removed the chip tray assembly and tube
.(installed a homemade adjustable vent cover)
My question is: Do I need some sort of heat shield over the heating element
(quarry tile) or just fill the water pan with silica sand? Maybe I don't need to be
concerned with big temperature variation at low temps (??)
Thanks for your input.
