Butt on new MES

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys, it's been a while! We were in the process of selling and buying a new house, so I haven't had time to smoke anything for months icon_evil.gif. We're settled in the new digs now and Mrs. WildSide got me an MES for father's day. First smoke was a nice butt for pulling. Rubbed with brown sugar, garlic, onion, cayenne, and chili powder. Here it's just going in the freshly seasoned smoker:
The Mrs. gives the thumbs up to the results:
I'm liking the MES! I wanted one for low temp smokes like jerkey and sausage, but I had to try it out on a butt. Thanks for looking!

Nice job... I have never used an electric- but it sure seems they have come a long way in the last few years from the older models I have seen. Temp control on units that burn fuel can be a real art/PITA, depending on your experience and patience levels- especially low temp stuff.

Thanks Guys! I forgot to mention, I used hickory and the Jack Daniel's charcoal pellets. They're made out of the filter coal from the distillery, it claims to be sugar maple. They worked great, nice smoke and flavor. I think I got lucky, so far the MES seems to have no issues including the door seal. Next up is some bacon and cheddar burgers and a couple of fatties for the 4th!
