Hello, I'm Tyler and I live in Danville, IL. I'm a newly enlisted member but have occasionally browsed the site to glean some of the wisdom, which have found to be readily available!

I have been smoking for about a year now when my wife approved (
) my purchase of the MES 40. I have smoked plenty of things but I'm afraid I've been putting too many chips in the pan and have been getting some bitter flavors, possibly due to creosote. I'm planning on getting an AmazeN smoke generator which I'm hoping will bring things to a whole new level.

In any case, I look forward to meeting you all and can't wait to try any ideas/suggestions you might have. I'm new at this and have a lot to learn so feel free to share your wisdom!

Thanks and God bless!

Welcome Tyler! Nice to meet you! Glad you joined our group. You'll like it here...it's the best place I know for sharing ideas on smoking, grilling, curing, etc. Looking forward to your input, and just ask when you need anything...someone here will likely have the answer.
