New to electric smoking.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Good evening all,

 

I just received  my mes 30 by fed ex today, and picked up an AMPNS from Cabelas, should be a good weekend.

 

I was doing the season process and added pellets to the loader the last 45 min, i hear a WOOF that almost blew the loader out,

 

I opened the unit to find the whole chip pan on fire. So lesson learned already . Many more learning curves to come i am sure.

Welcome to SMF, Billy!

 

Congrats on the new smoker!

 

Now you know why everybody uses an AMNPS for smoke!

Too many pellets...don't use pellets in the chip tray.  That is why you got the AMNPS

Ditto.  Remove the chip pan.

Also, MESs are famous for being inaccurate.  Consider using a reliable external thermometer for measuring your IT of your smoker as well as the meat.
