Second MES smoke

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm having a marathon of smoke to break in my new MES for a picnic roast I'm doing for the 4th. Yesterday was a Turkey breast that turned out ok. Today is a Bottom Round roast. I found I like Emeril's Steak Rub for a brisket I did a month ago so I used it today.

I'm curious how the meat will turn out with my MES vs the Vertical charcoal smoker I have. I can't wait to try some fatties and ABT. Now, to decide if I'm going to slice or shred...

Once I figure out how to post pics I'll supply Q-view.

I got pics of most of it and now just have to post pics. I never tried ABT before and shared it with my neighbors. Everyone, including myself were AMAZED! PDT_Armataz_01_37.gifWe did agree that we could wrap a stick with bacon and it would be good, though.PDT_Armataz_01_05.gif I used cream cheese, breakfast sausage and mexican blend cheese. Wasn't even hot.

Things took much longer than I anticipated. I pulled it off to rest at 9:00, so it was a good thing I had some hamburger handy for supper. I could have used some more smoke, so I'll keep that in mind for next time. Hickory and Apple, BTW.

Pics to come this afternoon.

I do like the meat that is coming out of the MES the more I use it. It seems like every time is a little better than the last. That being said, I do miss the charcoal flavor.

One of these days I will have to fire them up at the same time and see which one I like more. That's a great idea! The next time I do ribs, I'm doing just that.
