I have an mes30 electric smoke. I found it on sale at Walmart for $99 after my Cajun injector electric smoker stopped working. I had the roast out for about 1.5 hour and then put it in. I have it set to 230 degrees but will monitor it in case I need to make adjustments.
It's a bone-in prime rib and we are planning on eating around 7 tonight. I do have a meat thermometer and will def keep close eye on it. I'm hoping to get it to medium rare. Gonna take it out of the fridge in a bit and let it set before putting in the smoker. Seems like I read somewhere that...
Bought a 7lb prime rib and will be smoking it using bearcarver's thread. Quick question, it's 8 degrees outside here in Indiana. Will that affect the smoker much?
Going to start it about 2:00pm so I'll post pics shortly.
The issue is that there doesn't seem to be any power. I cannot turn it on no matter what I do. I tried again today thinking maybe something overheated, but it still wouldn't turn on.
This weekend I'm going to try removing the cord and see if there is something up with it.
I live in Bloomington Indiana and my smoker is called a electric Cajun Injector, but it looks like the MES brand.
Unfortunately, right as my ham finished yesterday, it shut off and won't come back on. Outlet is still getting power so I'm not sure the problem is. May have to get a new one.
