I've been smoking ribs and roasts on my Weber charcoal grill for the past few years but it's always difficult for me to commit the time required to keep up with the charcoal and temps. After finding this incredible site, I started lurking and learning about electric smokers. Weighing all the options between the different makes/models available I decided to go with the MES40 BT (Sam's Club version) and Todd's AMNPS. Now I just have to get the smoker seasoned and the weekend to arrive. Thank you to everyone's previous posts that helped me decide and I hope I can return the favor (flavor?) at some point.
