Wes from TX here. Been reading through some of the forums for the last couple days and decided I needed to join. Really impressed with the tons of recipes and great info on here. Been grilling and smoking on a giant stick burner for years but just purchased a MES 30 so I could be a little more portable. I move just about every 4 years or so and its tough to tote an extra 500lbs across the country. I can't wait to try it out and use some of the info I've read here.
