Finally tookthe plunge

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi, My name is John -- and I want to be a smoker......

Have been lurking here and there and trying to pseudo smoke on a Weber Genesis. Finally broke down and got a MES. I know it is still Lazy-Q,but it is a start!

Seasoned it today and will do some chickens this weekend to figure out the wood/smoke rates. Then I have a small rib roast to do on Sunday -- watch for the Qview!

Welcome to SMF , John , congrats on the MES , you will love it and continue to use it often , even if you get another smoker later ! The MES is very versitile and can be used for most anything ... watch the amount of chips you use ! don't use a whole cup full as the instructions say ... go with a small bit in the palm of your hand ... approx 9 - 10 , quarter size chips every 1/2 hr / 45 min or so will do the trick ... good luck on your new habit !

Welcome to SMF. There are times when I wish I had the MES (along with the ECB and Smoke Vault). Sometimes it would be nice just to set it and forget it.

Welcome to SMF John! As was mentioned, you may just end up with other smokers too! Heh... I'm considering a small watt-burner for fish/cheese and other lo-temp/accurate control applications.

Enjoy yer time here!
