Name is Curt and i live in southwest Montana. Been smoking meats off and on for some time but really just found a passion in it. I have a MES 40 and a Traeger mini for my smoking needs. Previous to that I used a Big Chief and a master built propane vertical smoker for all my stuff. The MES is quite the upgrade. I have some experience in ribs, sausage, and jerky. Recently been playing with Chicken and pork. Thats all I have for now. Happy Smoking.
