Just got a new MES $40 w/ window from Academy on black Friday. For $200 it was worth the standing in line at 5 am in the cold. I hunt and fish and do almost all the cooking at the house. I had an old propane smoker that finally fell apart. I had a friend that has a MES 40 and I liked the way it maintained the temps while we were out on the water prefishing for tournaments. When we would return to the cabin dinner was ready. I smoked a couple of small briskets and had to try the fatty once I came across that thread. I've got a turkey fatty w/ pepper-jack, cream cheese and spinach on now, along with 3 racks of baby backs and a pork butt that I am going to try Jeff's pork burnt ends recipe. This site is a wealth of knowledge and the people really seam nice and don't just post a bunch of smart-ass remarks. Seems like a rarity these days. I will post some pics soon. Thx

This was the first fatty I tried. Sausage peperoni, jalapeno cream cheese wrapped in bacon. Was good but very salty due to some weber chipotle rub I put on it.

Welcome from Canada, Cullin.


I agree with you about this forum. The people are great and I have learned a ton since I started smoking last year and found this forum.

Your fatty looks terrific! I look forward to more of your posts.

Hello and welcome from East Texas. This is a great site, lots of information and great people that are willing to throw in their two cents worth on about anything.
