    Masterbuilt not working properly

    Hello Luis, give then a call and talk to them. They were very helpful to me when I called. The first lady I spoke with was not a technical person, but when I started asking about the resistance readings & asking what they should be, she forwarded me to an engineering person. She was very helpful...

Last winter was way too cold and snowy (deep snowy!) to get it outside. I will work on this this fall. I am now using a thermometer inside for the heat and adjusting the...

    First Fatties & second smoke

    You bet we will be making more. I like the smaller ones because we can mix and match and everyone gets a sampling of what they like. Some beef, some sausage, some BBQ, some salsa... Will be making  a blend of sausage and beef next time, and I want to add more hot to some of the sausage for a...

    First Fatties & second smoke

    Sorry, not cuts. I'll try to remember them next time. We had the leftovers on Sunday. I fired the grill and placed them on with low heat to gently heat them. The bacon became a little more crisp and they were as good or better the second night. My wife liked the consistency of the bacon off the...

    "Nekkid" Chicken - Very first smoking in the MES.

    Thanks fellas, Will do. I have no problem experimenting. I will probably go to a single larger bird in the next go. I am also looking at the upright cages and beer racks. They are pretty cheap and will be fun to try. Thanks,

    "Nekkid" Chicken - Very first smoking in the MES.

    Thanks Chef Willie, Yes, I did close the vent. Also, should I have added more wood for fresher smoke? Thanks,

    First Time Turkey Smoke

    Hi TG Pythons, I have been smoking on a gas grill and got a MES smoker for Christmas. The weather has finally broken, snow is off the deck,  and the weather is warming up. I am ready to start on my smoking journey. I just seasoned my new MES smoker and will be doing two chickens for first meal...

    2 6# chickens for 1st time

    Just a question, how did you position the bird? on end on a reack, or on its back? Was there a lot of grease drippings? How did you go about preparing the bird? (Sorry - newbie - I did not think of smoking a chicken before) Thanks
