Just received my new MES and am looking forward to lots of good food. I spent last summer playing with a charcoal smoker and enjoyed it but do not have the time to do the constant baby sitting. I seasoned it last night and it came up to 275 in about an hour with it 20 outside. I put the chips I dry since that is what I read on here to do and it made smoke for about two hours or so. Heard a lot of talk about smoke problems but mine seemed ok. Main things I want to do is pulled pork, half chickens and snack sticks. Any tips or advice would be great. Also, any links to past post that have great recipes and cooking temps with time would be great. Thanks for all the info you guys have here.
