Grease fire or something eh?

Never know---Anything can happen:
Grease, Electrical problem, etc...
I know of a guy who had fats accumulate inside the door of his MES. (strange)
Then the door burst into flames, and burned. Luckily he was nearby, and put it out before it could do more than ruin the Smoker door. Masterbuilt gave him a new door.

My MES is on my Wood front porch, on a wood platform, next to a log house wall, under a wood T & G ceiling, on an All Wood Log Home.
All worth more to us than a couple Brisket Meals or a couple dozen Pulled Pork Sammies.

Yep, I set some pork to cook on mine a couple weeks ago at about 1am, I was definitely aware of where I was placing the smoker in case something did happen. I had also set myself an alarm to keep checking on it fairly regularly.

Funnily enough, my biggest fear was a bear coming and kicking it over to steal the meat.

I will be doing my first slow cook tomorrow, a boston butt. I cooked some ribeyes, chicken thighs and salmon last weekend. All turned out well. Gonna start in the early a.m. and get this puppy going.

My first Butt took a lot longer than I expected.
It was chilly and breezy.
