This may not be the right place for this thread so if The Mods want to move it to some sort of build forum that might be appropriate. On my phone I didn't see such a subforum so I figured I'd start off here.
So having decided I'm not enough of a boy scout to keep a very steady fire...
I'm looking around to see who knows of a Wi-Fi barbecue thermometer.
My trusty old ink bird four probe Bluetooth one is starting to become flaky.
I find that I don't like Bluetooth because I live in a house with thick rock walls on the 1st floor and all I have to do is get one of...
Hi everyone -
I have been given a secondhand MES 30, the older analog type.
It only has one cooking rack in it.
I would like to get the other three, but the only online sources I see are for pairs of racks, and I don't really need five racks after I order two pairs to get three....
Meh... It's just that I'm a longtime electronics/electrical tech.
That _really_ should have occurred to me.... it's not like I haven't known insulators from conductors for years...
I was actually overthinking it, imagining that by the point at which the element was touching the metal,
So, after many hours of intermittent pounding on it to clean it, here is the resulting mailbox mod.
Freshly painted, rolling stand built, mailbox plumbed in.
PID controller still underway -- I'm using an Auber 2342 a friend gave me, with an SSR and heatsink from a PC.
Previous owner had...
OK thanks -- <whacks forehead a few times>
:oops::oops: (if there were an embarassed emoticon on here...)
Can we now not discuss the fact that I've been a amateur radio operator for 30+ years, and didn't even THINK about why pots don't short stove elements out!
Geez, that was...
Hi all -
I've got a MES30 I was given, which I've been rebuilding.
It's the older analog 30
One thing I noticed while cleaning it up -
It has two permanently installed left-to-right chromed metal bars in the bottom, riveted into the walls off the smoker.
The element is mounted from the...
I followed your instructions without having even seen them!
I did just that hole in the side of the smoker. I did hit that brace inside the wall, and that got exciting for the 4" hole saw I was using - I didn't have a tight grip on the drill! I was just easing the drill along, and...
Hi everyone -
I'm sure this has been done before-
I just got given a completely free MES30, specifically it is the 20070210 version
(see pic below) which only has the internal chip tray, not the later version with the tube that slides in from the side, and dumps chips into a covered tray.
Just curious --
Has anyone ever tried using any type of cold smoke injector in conjunction with a crockpot
to smoke any kind of meat?
My wife loves to crockpot various pieces of pork, chicken, etc.
I'd love to find a way to gently add smoke to some of those, for part of the cooking time...
Here is a set of ribs I just finished up --
I spent the entire day up on the roof of the house working on ripping off and replacing the roof around the chimney.
Thanks to Todd and the A-Maze-N-Smoker, these didn't require any attention from me at all for the smoking.
I get to have perfectly...
