Hey all, just joined after reading these forums for great advice for a few months. Just bought jeffs rub and sauce recipes and will be smoking ribs in my MES tomorrow grilling_smilie.gif

I'm curious and love to experiment. I love trying new recipes for rubs and sauces, dry/wet brining, cold/hot smoking, making sausage and grilling up tasty meats for entertaining as I'm sure most of us do!

I will create posts of some of my trials and successes in hopes to give a little back after taking from the forum for a while now.

Happy smoking friends!

Thanks Bear! I'm reading your excellent posts, learning a lot! It looks like I unfortunately have the gen2 MES 40, but it's been treating me well for over a year now. The temps can be all over the place to start, but once it's going steady it seems to hold fairly well.. Maybe I got lucky?

If you do run into trouble (due to that slanted drip plate), what I've been recommending is to remove the slanted drip plate & small water pan.

Then put the bottom grill rack in & put a foil pan (9" X 12") in the middle of the rack to soften the direct heat rising.
