Hi guys,I'm Bobby and live in Pa. I'm smoking with a masterbuilt electric smoker. I know,I dont get any man points for using an electric smoker but I had a half barrel type with an offset firebox and keeping the temp above 220 after 3 hours was a major pain. I'm looking forward to picking the brains of the pit masters here and getting all the advise I can get regarding the MES.

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.

Hey Bobby, welcome to the forums. We have a number of wattburners here so you're in fine company. The MES is a good little unit and folks that use them enjoy the ease.

welcome to the site, I use the MES exclusivly now thanks to a big oak tree and a storm. I love it. That unit will put out some fine smokes and is easy to use. I will give you a tip that was passed on by Ron, Our resident MES pro.
Get a 12 x 12 UNGLAZED ceramic tile and place it over the heating element in the unit. This will eleminate the hot spot that is on the right side of the unit.
