First smoke on MES 30


Joined Dec 3, 2013
Got one for Christmas and gave it a go today. I have been using a Brinkmann electric and it worked pretty good smoked a turkey on it for Christmas Day and a ham for Christmas Eve. The new MES was like driving a brand new car though. I seasoned it last night then put the butt on first thing this morning. Needless to say it turned out great.

I don't do any posting in here but I do read all the threads and want to say thanks for everyone's ideas and recipes it has been a ton of help. I have a maverick 732 and an Amazen pellet smoker but I had a lot of trouble with it today given the cold wet conditions. I am going to definitely make some mods to the smoker to take advantage of the pellet smoker very soon. Today though I just used the pellets in the smoker just like I would wood chips and it worked fine!!!

Once again thanks for all the help even though you guys didn't know you were helping!!!
