    SAFFIRE Grill questions

    Thank you!  You bring up great points.  I was considering an 18" grill, but you are correct, for me and what we smoke, brisket for instance and 14 # turkeys, etc..  I will follow your advice, just like with gun safes, always buy the next bigger size than what you think you need.  LOL.

    SAFFIRE Grill questions

    I am getting close to buying a Kamado style grill.  I was absolute set on the BGE until I stumble into a local store looking for a fall deal on patio furniture when I see these SAFFIRE grills. Of course the salesman told me how the SAFFIRE is an upgraded version of the BGE because of the better...

    MES 40" New Generation or 2nd or whatever... Electrical Problem ~~~ GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE~~~!!!!

    I called Masterbuilt this morning. I spoke with a young lady who was extremely polite and helpful. She asked me a couple of questions and put me on hold for 30 seconds. She came back on the line and gave me an authorization number and instructions to return the end of the plug and aluminum data...

    Cleaning inside of Masterbuilt smoker? Do or Don't?

    I am having an electrical problem with my 40" MES right now.  In the short ten months or so that I have owned it, I just clean the racks and foil the bottom as Padronman stated.  With the moisture issues these MES apparently are susceptible to, I will not use liquid to clean the inside.

    Thanks for the responses.  That is not really the news I wanted to hear, although I expected it.  I should have put the money towards a more expensive brand; I am not sure what the point of replacing a defective part with another part that has the same design flaw.  I have a 15' deep X 20'...

    Hey y'all, A long story short...  My electronic dog fence was down and I had to chase down my dog.  I figured out that the last outlet on the 15 amp circuit run, that the smoker is plugged into (as well as dog fence) was bad.   After me not knowing enough about GFI circuits, etc.  Like an...

    First cheese smoke!!!!

    Too much smoke for us.  We like a slight hint of smoke and this is just too much for us.  I served for our New Year's eve party with some deer summer sausage and crackers.  Most of it was eaten with good reviews, however I am always a little skeptical of food reviews when the bubbly is flowing. ...

    Sounds good, say three days in fridge before I double wrap with saran wrap and put in zip lock bags?

    First cheese smoke!!!!

    Well, I got side tracked doing some other stuff today, i.e., watching football... and this smoked for just over 3 hours.  Everything looks mildly darker except the Jarlsberg which is noticeably darker.

    First cheese smoke!!!!

    O.K., there is no visible moisture on the cheeses and all of the various cheese portions feel dry to the touch, is that because my highest temp was 61 degrees?  Or am I just letting set to dry out moisture that I can not detect with a finger swipe?
