    so after a few years of wanting to become a smoker. the weather "forced" me to have to purchase a smoker for my father's day. too windy for my bbq

    I purchased an MES 30 on Friday, seasoned it that night and then did my first smoke.

    I made a 10lb brisket that turned out decent and I had no complaints on it. I was rather disappointed with it only missing a smoke ring. but after some reading it is kind of expected with an electric smoker.

    then on father's day, I smoked some ribs. these were really good and my family loved them.

    I thought you were just excited about your new smoker! LOL

    Sounds like you had a few good smokes. Hats off for attempting a brisket on your first smoke...was by far my most challenging. :)

    Next time you should post a few pics so that we can drool over your success ;)

    Cheers

    some great tasting ribs that needed about 20 more minutes in the smoker. I also basted some BBQ sauce on them and threw them on the BBQ for the caramelization.
