  1. Hey all, I just bought a masterbuilt 30" electric smoker without the window. Got it assembled, now what. ;)

    I figured it'll be smarter for me to learn from others with more experience.

    There's a bunch of MES owners on here and they will help ya a bunch... From what I hear, it's a great smoker..... The one downfall that all will agree with is the stock therm is not accurate.... I'd suggest like a lot of us on this site to invest in a Maverick ET-732 therm. The Mav is great, and it's a wireless transmitter so ya can keep track of your temp easy. Also it's a dual probe therm so ya can track smoker temp as well as meat IT !

    Congrats on the new toy, now get er dirty ! :beercheer:

    Welcome, from southern Ohio, to the best forum on the internet if you are looking to learn how to BBQ/smoke/brine/cure/inject. Well you get the picture if you can do it to something you put on a plate to eat then someone here has probably done it then smoked it. Use the search bar at the top of the page and you will be led to the answer to most every question you can think of. If you don't find the answer there then just post it and someone will chime in with their opinion on the subject.

    I to hope you got one of the good ones!! The two items that will help you the most when using your new MES, are a AMPNS and a Maverick thermometer The only advice I can offer is be patient, learn your smoker and all of its quirks, Start a smoking log and put all of the pertinent info in there for future use.
    Here is a link to the MES Owners Group:
    You may have to join the group to post there, but any questions you have that would be the best place to post them.
