WooHoo! All I can say is Masterbuilt betta watch out! I am all over my new MES, even though I didn't get the one I thought I ordered, even though the nice lady at Cabela's told me it came with the remote and wheels, even though it really didn't, and even though another nice lady at Cabela's said they didn't even carry that one, and yet another nice lady gave me $50 bucks back because they marked down the price like a couple of days after I ordered it. Whew. I do have a smoke leaking problem and will send a PM to the Masterbuilt tech guy, maybe he can tell me how to fix it. Regardless of all this, I still am loving this thing. I love the way the smoke smells and that I can have it right on my back porch and it does seem to be very forgiving towards blonde squirrels. Okay, I confess, it took me a little bit to realize that you actually have to set the timer before the heat will come on, I was just setting the temp. I need a t-shirt that says "beyond blonde". Whateva, I surely was a man in a previous life because actually reading instructions is obviously beneath me. Double . So here we go. How could I not "christen" my new baby in style? Really? Hey man, go big or go home. Triple . There should in fact be some sorta majestical music in the background at this point, yep, I bought a 9+ pounder of a real deal PRIME ribbage. I will not tell you how much I paid for it because I could have fed a small nation. Okay now I'm a selfish, indulgent, greedy squirrel. Not really greedy because I kept one small piece for me and gave the rest to, umm, to some guys that do stuff, umm, to things that are really hot and charcoallyish, and might cause things to burn down. OKAY I ADMIT IT I LOVE FIREMEN and all their hot steaminess. Cuatro . I should have gotten a better picture, because you can't see the rack but it is there. It's an "A" cup obviously. I rubbed it down with some of this, I really like this stuff. You guys that are making rubbage, why don't you try doing something like this. PLEASE! Hello my love, shall we dance? No? Well, may I lick your fat cap? So, to go with my special "I love my new MES, and it loves me back" themed day, I made something very special, YORKSHIRE PUDDING!!! No, no applause, thank you, yes, I know, that is sooooo British of me. But I'm not British. I'm Irish, German and Native American. That would explain alot. It hurts my head to even think about it sometimes. They are soooo good and simple to make and remind me of my "cat" head biscuits. I also roasted some asparagus and "shrooms: I also put a couple of heads of garlic in the MES to use in my garlic mashed 'taters, I didn't do photos of the taters because I have sooo done that and am bored with it. I also made this for dessert - apple caramel cake. It was okay. I added some cherries and that made me very happy. Really happy, like touch myself happy. Okay then, here's the grand finale, drumroll please, or atleast everybody pass gas in such a syncronized way that the universe bows to us all Thanks for sharing my special moment. A moment of pure love and bliss. My new MES may not be perfect, but by gawd it is still awesome!!!!
