MES Smoke Ring

Discussion in 'Electric Smokers' started by pastor smoke, Aug 19, 2014.

  1. This is my first experience with a MES, and having used propane and wood smokers in the past, I'm not seeing the smoke ring that I got with them using the MES. Does anyone else have the same problem or am I doing it wrong (which is my guess)?

    I don't have my MES yet ,if I ever do , but I haven't heard anyone griping about it . . .

    Someone with one will be here soon and will clue you in on the details, meanwhile . . .

    You will not get a smoke ring from an electric smoker. Its something we give up to not need to tend the first box.

    Since it doesn't increase or reduce flavor, it seemed a go trade off to me.
  4. Thanks! I know my flavor is great and moistness is incredible, but I was wondering if I was missing something. Lord knows I love my MES.

    If you want a faux pink smoke ring, rub it down with Morton's Tenderquick. Just for looks, has no effect on taste of brisket or other meat you do this trick to

    Hmmmmm. My Brisket rub is Kosher Salt and Cracked Black Pepper. No need for extra.
