First time posting here. I picked up a MES30 over Christmas and I've had some success thus far. I have a few questions though and need some expert advice.
MES30 - While cooking I notice black liquid dripping down the sides and from the ceiling of the smoker. Can I assume that's creosote? The MES30 only has a quarter sized hole to vent smoke. Should I install a larger vent or additional holes for ventilation? Where do I put the holes/ventilation, top or sides?
A-MAZE-N Smoker - I have the 5x8 pellet smoker and it's great. When I use it I'm sure to not fill to the top, but I do light both ends. My issue is that at the 45 minute mark the pellets are all burned down. It only gives me 1.5 - 2 hours of smoke. Is that normal? Should they burn that quickly?
