Hello everyone. Found this forum while looking for a recipe. The wife got me an MES 30 for my birthday and I am having some fun. I have been cooking for years using different smokers but this is my first electric. I found out first thing that the meat probe in my smoker reads 28 F hot. You have a great forum here with a lot of good input. I live in the country in south central Virginia. Look forward to a lot of interaction with you. First name is Henley.
Hello Henley and Welcome to our addiction.  A word of warning: There is no 12 step program for this one!  Many good folk here with a load of experience that they are more than willing to share.  If you have specific questions just start a thread and someone with experience will be along soon to offer advice.  All info you can provide us with such as smoker type, location and so on will help us answer any questions you may have.  Spend some time doing some research on the forums, tons of advice and recipes already available there.  We look forward to your contributions.  Have fun.  Good luck.  Keep Smokin!

Hello and welcome from East Texas. This is a great site, lots of information and great people that are willing to throw in their two cents worth on about anything.
