Hey all,

Just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Brian and I just started getting into smoking. Been lurking around here for a while and decided to join. Looking to pick up my first smoker for xmas, and am leaning toward the MES 30", trying to convince the better half, that bigger is better and the 40" will be better..we will see how that goes.

Thanks in advance for all the help,

Brian

Hi Brain, and welcome to the SMF. Keep reading the great material available to you. You'll always be glad you've bought the bigger version, and you'd regret buying the smaller one. It's all good my friend.

Welcome to SMF!!!

 If you can convince her to go w/ the 40" you should. You will be happier.

 folks complain that its hard to get a full rack of spares on the 30" w/o cutting them in half . I own the 40" and wish i had Two of them.

 Also if you are going to smoke for friends and family ,The extra space comes in real handy.

 Either way you go ,You'll enjoy your MES.

There's a wiki here on using photobucket for your pictures.  There is a bit of a learning curve, but not complicated.  Congrats! on your new smoker. You'll find LOTS of MES users here, so you should feel right at home.  Pork butt or spare ribs are good starter smokes, IMO. Jeff's rub recipe is foolproof and can be easily adapted to suit your taste. Cheers!
