    Ok so I've been lurking for about a year and I finally joined. Also just bought a mes and it currently has my first butt on it now (been on for 12 hrs). Live in Al and love to eat some que!
    I have found several forums , but I think this place has a lot of the answers and I look forward to learning from all og y'all.

    Hop Hop I hope you are not using the MES probe,they are normally way off. Aad the same thing applies to the control panel

    Unfortunately I am using the probe and control panel. I have been hesitant to open it to see what it feels like.
    After 13 hrs should I open it or just be patient?

    HH if you didn't check it yet when you do use a tooth pick to see how tender the meat is. Get a maverick or something to monitor the CC and Meat. Hope it is tender and juicy.
  9. Post some pics so we can see

    This is my first effort at postin a picture and smoking a butt.
    The bark was really black. Good taste but maybe my rub?
