  1. Looking good, I wish we had an HEB here in Tyler, closest one is in Carthage, Brookshire's eliminated all the competition except foe Wally World . As big as Tyler is, that is the only two grocery chains we have.

    Can't wait to see more pictures

  7. Just got mine last night for a B-Day gift. Have not used it yet but cannot wait. Family picked it up at Academy Sports. Just started surfing the forum for mods and suggestions.

    The mod that is most popular is the mailbox mod. But make sure you go to the Sponsors page, visit the Amaz-N website and pick up a AMNPS.

  10. Me. I have a MES 30. Just joined the fourm. Done a few smokes since I purchased it. Seems Im not getting the bark Im expecting off my briskets Ive cooked so far. Any suggestions. Its like too moist inside or something. The rub will come off with your just touching the meat after its been cooked.

    Make sure the vent is 100% open on top.

    Don't put water in your water pan. Either wrap it in foil & leave it in the smoker empty, or fill it with sand for a heat sinc.

    Hey Texas Hunter...

    If nothing else, get an AMNPS for your MES...best add-on ever! I was a 'stick and steel' smoker for several decades before I got a 40" MES for my birthday a couple years ago, and although it is a great smoker, the AMNPS will provide you with steady, consistent smoke for a longer time than the MES can do...and it allows you to cold smoke, should you choose to!

  17. I ended up sending master built a email a few weeks ago and they got back to me today.......   they are sending me a new unit of better quality although the new smoker has a window, not sure about that but hey I'm pretty impressed with the customer service!!!   I didn't end up testing the internal temp but the smoker was over heating for sure the exterior of the unit was very hot to touch...  [​IMG]

    Just curious, why use the AMNPS when you're doing hot smoking? Do you use that instead of the chip pan in your mes smoker?

    Yes. The AMNPS gives very consistent smoke for 6-8 hours for me. That means I can set and forget long smoking meats (like pork butt or brisket) and not have to load chips every 45 mins.
