Got a new MES 40 ss w/ window

Discussion in 'Electric Smokers' started by stovebolt, Jan 3, 2011.

  1.  Daughter and Son-in-law bought me a new MES 40 for Christmas. Had a couple of small issues during set-up. Wire bracket that holds cooking racks had broken weld. Screws stripped on clip that holds grease pan. Nothing major. So on with the seasoning and then some cooking. I have been having issues with putting pictures in with the text today so this time I'm going to post no matter how it comes out. If it does as before it will put the pictures above my text and I can't get it to return. Here goes.

     First a couple of chickens and then a 7 Lb butt that smoked for 11 hrs.


     It seems to be working now. So on to the butt.


    This was early in the smoke. Since it's working now I'll try a finished pic.

    Looks good Stovebolt. What was that next to the Butt in the pan? I am still waiting for my MES 40 to arrive. Hoping it gets here in one piece.
  3.  Racenut, that's kosher salt. It was an experiment. I haven't even tried it yet. Hope you get yours soon.
