Been reading a lot on these forums and finally decided to join the brotherhood. Took the drive to cabelas last week to pick up a few gifts and also purchased an MES 40 for myself. I have to say that remote is SWEET! Nothing but from the wifey though. So far I've only gotten ribs under my belt. That's changing this weekend when we throw a bird in there. Just like to say thanks to everyone taking the time to post up their trade secrets and experiences. Helps rookies like us get it done...right.
