Got an MES 40 a few weeks ago a quickly finding this to be a great hobby. So far I've tried my hand at smoked chicken wings, pork butt, brisket and baby back ribs. Still have some learning to do as I tweak methods and recipes but this site is now my "goto" for anything smoking related. My wife and I are originally from Nebraska (Go Big Red!) but we've been in Denver,CO since 2008. Cheers!
