I was wondering the trick to a smoke ring. I use a MES 30' analog smoker. Which I am adding more venting today.
What's the trick??? Are there any MES 30' Mods out there?
Buy a new smoker.
Not trying to sound rude but you are fighting a loosing battle with an electric smoker. The smoke ring comes from a chemical reaction that occurs during combustion in wood, propane, and charcoal smokers. It has no flavor and adds nothing to the food other than the look.
I don't even notice the lack of a ring when I use my MES. It tastes good and that's all that matters.
If your MES works then stick with it. As I mentioned above, the smoke ring does nothing for taste so it really doesn't matter.
Chrismoker , wen looking do yourself a favor and get a "GOOD" one.
Bmaddox is correct in that Watt Burners do not make a ring , but really that is just 'Bragging" rights , taste is priority one.
If you decide to get Wood Burner , try to save up for a thick metal one (3/8" or better) . You'll thank me later . Also get one the next size up from what you "need" , again , you'll thank me
later . . .
have fun and . . .
