New smoker with new MES

Discussion in 'Electric Smokers' started by southensmoker, Dec 10, 2010.

  1. Just bought a MES 30 (20070910) today and I'm reading all about this free retro-kit, and problems with loading wood chips.  Does anyone know that the model numbers are required in order to get the free retro-kit?  Also I'm smoke ribs tonight at 225 just wondering after an hour should the wood chips be just charred or be ashes?   Thanks

     I empty my wood chip pan every third smoke . dont care what's in it.
