Hello, new member here, Jason AKA rignerd. Been lurking on here the few weeks, thought I should join once I got a real smoker. Just bought a MES 40 from Sam's club and ordered an AMNPS from amazon. I've been using the Webber kettle for the last 20+ years, made some great Q on it, but it is just too small to make a three meat smoke. I also have a Q-2200 for fast cooking. About me: I live just north of Houston Texas. I have 9 kids (3 boys, 6 girls) 5 from the previous marriage and 4 (prefab) with the new wife. All the boys have moved out, not sure if they are cowards or geniuses. I work in the telecommunications field, have done electronics and communications since 1982. US Air Force veteran, 10 years active and 6 years reserve duty, separated with the rank of Tsgt (E-6) working in the Ground Radio Communications field.
