Well, I have kicked off my first smoke with my MES 40 unit. I am using the AMAZN smoker with Hickory and a little Cherry pellets. Just threw it in the smoker after injecting and putting my rub all over this beauty. Its been sitting for about 10 hours after injecting and now, let's see how it goes. I am attaching a few pics to kick it off and will post pictures over the cook. FINGERS CROSSED!! The top pic is after I trimmed the brisket up, the 2nd one is of the outside shot of my unit and the 3rd one is with the brisket actually on the grate in the smoker!
