I am really enjoying my Sam's Club MES. The one thing I don't like is the constant adding wood. I've found that if I add more than what will burn up in 30 or 40 minutes, I get a bitterness to my smoke. I already have the smoke daddy installed on my Natural Gas Masterbuilt so I just added the hardware with the union and now I can put the smoke daddy on either as needed. I'm smoking some stuffed mushrooms, ATBz and some mildly cured pork chops as I type and the smoke daddy has been running for 2 hours without touching it. Actually I have to mess with it some or it wouldn't be as much fun. I could have filled it up with pellets and it would smoke about 4 hours without any needed assistance. I'll post supper later.
