    Beer Butt Chicken Questions

    Hi all, plan on smoking a few small chickens this weekend with family in town.   I've read several threads on the beer butt chicken, some say to brine them, some say they are still moist without brining and some say cook low and some say over 300.  This is what I had in mind:  throw a few pads...

    Tied Sticks

    Very Nice!  Would you mind sharing what you did and what kind of casings those are?  From the looks and my very little knowledge of stuffing, it appears you stuffed it first and then tied it at the spots with a small piece of twine?  I'm trying to read up on all of this prior to stuffing my...

    2nd MES and still having temp problems

    I had my first smoke in my new MES 40 from Sam's this weekend.  I hung the ET-73 probe from the 2nd rack up from the water pan on the front of the rack.  With my MES set at 235 the probe was reading anywhere from 206-215.  I assumed that this was because it was at the front of the box and the...

    The State Fair Fattie!! and more

    When I hear the State Fair is here I immediately think Corn Dogs!!  I thought I would try to incorporate that into a fattie, so here it is.  I used two corn dogs baked in the oven and some tater tots, wrapped in JD and bacon.  The taste was just okay as the corndog got somewhat soggy.  THe other...

    New guy from SC

    Welcome Buddy!  I started off with a Masterbuilt Gasser and just now purchased the MES 40.  Hope to get my first smoke on it this weekend, but from all of my readings, the MES is the way to go.  Sam's has a great deal on them!   I'm up in Fort Mill, SC if you're ever up this way!

    First Fattie w/ First Qview

    Thanks everyone for the comments!  I do have to admit, I browned it up under the broiler for a minute or so after taking it out of the smoker.  I'm definitely addicted, dreaming of what's going in the next one!!  That blueberry pancake one sounds tempting...

    At What Level Should Thermometer be Inside Smoker?

    Did a short test this past weekend prior to putting the meat on.  The bottom rack, which is just above the water pan, was about 30 degrees cooler than the rack just above it, does that make sense?   I even let it burn for about an hour, thinking the water was having an affect, and it didnt...
