Hello from Cleveland

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I have a MES 30. Did 3 oven roaster chickens for my first try. Brined overnite, and smoked at 235-240 for 4 hours. Did it for the Ohio State vs Michigan game weekend before Turkey Day. Friends that were over devoured them like savages. Used mostly apple wood but added hickory to each load. Sorry I did not take any pics.

Christmas Day had the family over and smoked a 7.5lb pork loin roast. Left the spine in and a few rib bones. Brined overnight, used a sage, coriander, and celery powder rub. Smoked with cherry and hickory almost 4.5 hours at 240. Took off at meat temp of 140 wrapped in foil and at rest it arrived at 158. Entire family mowed it down like condemned convicts.

I do have pics of that put my camera is not cooperating. Both of these smoking adventures took place in horrific weather conditions. Rained all day for the Buckeyes game and was cold. Christmas Day we had a blizzard and 20 degrees. I did follow instructions I read in here about bringing the MES indoors to warm it up prior to use. Worked fine and held heat fine.

Hey neighbor!

Welcome to the forum! I'm rather new here myself, but have found it not only highly informative, and a lot of fun...but a bit addictive as well!

I've started to see some others from Ohio here -- which is good. And you have got to be relatively close. Live in Akron now, but spent most of my life living in the Cleveland area.

What part of town are you in?

Looking forward to seeing those pics!

welcome, we all like pictures but many of us understand the picture/sizing/posting thing is almost as hard as the cooking itself.

First off welcome Zen to SMF. What part of Florida cause I'm in the jacksonville area and there are some of us near tallehassee too. You'll like it here cause there are abunch of good folks here that would just love to help you out with just about anything to do with smoking. We really like to have newbies here because they can bring in a new propective to how things are done. There's nothing like a new set of eyes to give and new way to make things that little differant to make things alittle better. So I hope you know about the Qview here.
Here's a link to photobucket it's free and easy to download pictures. Then if your really new to smoking Look up the E-course.
