Hi all, I'm one of the latest new guys. Can't believe I didn't find this forum in the last 5 years since I started smoking!

I have a MES & the controller started losing its mind a couple of weeks ago, JUST as I was about to slip a $100 brisket into it. I managed to limp through the process (thanks to my friend who was nice enough to loan me a smoker in the middle of the night as a backup, gotta love the smoking community!). I started looking for parts and realised there was a better way, thanks to the this forum and the mad scientists/technical wizards on here. By some minor miracle, I found a used Auber PID listed locally for $30, just needed to order the probe for it (its on the way). Found the instructions on this forum on how to rewire (simple enough for a technical guy like myself) and now am getting set to do just that. Didn't want to throw out a perfectly good smoker because of a faulty, cheap controller!

Of course one thing leads to another (doesn't it always?) and in reading about fixing my smoker I noticed on one of the local smoking FB groups that I'm on, that there were Camp Chef Pursuit 20 on end of season sale for $399.99 down the street from me. Went for a drive this morning and somehow one jumped into the back of my truck before I was able to make it back home! Haha!

Never had a pellet grill before, looking forward to giving this one a try (for now it's safely in its box, too many other tings to do today). Fortunately, my wife is VERY understanding & has agreed not to kill me! 😎

Have really enjoyed smoking and have learned a TON in the past 5 years with my MES. Time to try something new, and hey, nothing wrong with having two different types of smokers, right!? I thought you'd say that! 🙂

Did my very first whole brisket a couple of weeks ago and it turned out fantastic! Can't wait to do more! Ribs have been a favorite in the past, and smoking hams as well.

Well, that's it for now, will keep reading up on MES on here, as well as learning this new-to-me technology that is pellet smoking!

Take care,
Luc
