    I am new to Smoking.

    I have plenty of Food Toys, I.E. Bread Machines, Meat Grinder, Ronco Rotisserie, ETC...ETC...

    But - I am new to smoking.

    I am happy to have discovered this Forum.

    I recently purchased a MES 40 from Lowe's...Let me tell you more...

    Not sure if it is a Gen I or II..

    1200 W element - Controls in Front(Not on the back)No glass doors...Yes, I bought the 3 year warranty after reading these boards...

    I bought it to primarily smoke my excellent homemade Kielbasa:):):)

    I live in NE PA(hanna or no)and use my prunings from my apple, cherry, pear and peach trees to smoke.

    I keep a "Meat Journal" and so far I have Smoked - 

       Rolled & Netted Boneless Pork Shoulder 3.5 LBS. - Not Bad - Probe Temp is way off...25 degrees low - learning experience

       Re Smoked the leftovers...Better 2nd night... :):):) Adjusted Temps & Wood

       2nd smoke - Home ground/home made Beef Sausage - Kielbasa test flight - first taste seemed over smoked - 3 days latter OMG -      kind of taste like Lebanon Bologna....excellent colar...

       3rd smoke - The Christmas Kielbasa - Most Excellent - Only 2 hours of smoke - Good oven safe meat therm in meat - good oven         safe therm in smoker - Nice result - Color not as cherry red as I would like - Paprika in recipe? 

       4th smoke - The Christmas Ham & Pit Beans - 8 LBS.Spiral Ham from Aldi's...Face slices kind of dry but OMG - rear fat and bark         out of this world... 

    Well, The Boss has come home and I have to go...

    Looking forward to meeting all of you!
