Thanks! Yeah, I have done wings, chicken breasts, Drunken Chicken, a ham and a couple of Boston Butts. What made me crazy about the pork shoulder was feeding wood through the incredibly ineffective Cajun door for a bazillion hours So, I'm checking out the pellet thing ASAP. :)
And, yeah, I hear you on the school thing. But I ain't missing it this week :D
@daRicksta, I'm offended that no one is offended!! (Not really) :D
You're my kind of girl, from South Carolina, I would love to hear you talk, I would surely melt
My wife does not have that drawl, I love hearing those cute southern accents, you gals have us guys all messed up in the head when you come on the scene looking all pretty and talking with that southern drawl, people say I have a strong accent but do not think so, but they are always asking me where in the south I am from LOL, I may live in the Capital of the Confederacy but Va is as far South as I have lived, I have been to the Carolinas many times, N and S on runs for the Patriot Guard and the Sinese Foundation, nice ride for me to SC, and very nice scenery might I add, and the people remind me of the farm and the people I came up with, down home and just real as they come.
And now I understand your issue, that is why I got the AMNPS before I even used this MES 30, I read so many posts in here about having to add chips, except the manual and the posts indicated it had to be done every 30 minutes !!!! for mine, that would take all the enjoyment out of this electric wonder, it would be like I was tending the smokehouse again on the farm.....................but the AMNPS, if you are cooking below 250 degrees, it will last a long time, mine went 9 hours at 275 degrees filled, and I used the Cabela's pellets, nothing fancy.
They are really cheap to, and the pellets are cheap IMO, a big bag that will last me till next year most likely for 15 bucks, I am just impressed with all of it to be honest and still cannot believe it smokes better than my CharGrill, but then next time I use the CharGrill I will probably be using the pellet smoker in the side box also ROFLOL.
