Damon Warren Southaven MS, Got my first smoker a few weeks ago from santa! I have a mes 30. We started with a ham and it went really well as they are hard to screw up I think, Jumped into some chicken breast last week that I was very surprised with how good they came out. Just laid a 10lb boston butt on for 12 hrs to try my hand with that! Thanks for all the tips that I have already gotten here as a lurker!
