As most report I been following this site for years from when I used a wood offset smoker. However due to several reasons I am now using an electric masterbuilt for the first time. Long story for another day. But man oh man is it not the same. So most of my issues I’m running into and questions I have are all about this thing.

I’d like to try and do the proper thing here and hold my questions so I can introduce myself.

I’m in Maryland around sea level. Got a MES30 that I just installed the mailbox mod and the amazon pellet tray. Did some testing with it today with no food. Definitely a weekend hobby that I barely have time for as it is with my crazy family. But I still love bbq! And still want to keep at it with this setup.
Unfortunately medically retired Air Force veteran. Family of 5. We love all things sports outdoors drinking and eating! Bass fishing and watching the NY Giants are more of my fav hobbies.

I look forward to learning from this site and chatting with you all.
I’ll be posting some questions and pictures soon.

Welcome to the Forum, from Alberta.
Ask all the questions you need to have answered. Everybody is more than ready to reply and share their knowledge. Lots of MES smokers here (including me) who'll be happy to help.

Welcome from Ga. Also a fellow NY Giants fan. I usually don't go public with that info, as it's a little embarrassing. lol. You'll find this is the best place to be. I also use an MES 40, and this site has really helped me more in 2.5 years, than the previous 10 years combined. Ask many questions and you'll get the answers needed and then some.
