Name is Dan, and I live in Eastern PA, where the weather is beginning to get decent. not new to smoking and love outdoor cooking. I have a Char-Griller Super Pro and a Weber WSM, and will have an MES 40 delivered from Sams on Monday. Also have a Broil Master grill and just got a Char-Broil 4 burner RED last week.

Love cranking up a smoker and doing outdoor projects or yard work and going over to check for coals or add some wood, but sometimes I just want to chill and let do other things and do not want the hassle of the charcoal and wood, so what the heck, I'll try it.

Some really good stuff on this forum. As with a lot of cooking forums, lots of helpful people.

Hi Dan, welcome to SMF x2. I am formerly from the Scranton area. My parents still live up in Dickson city pa. I transplanted to NJ, then 23 yrs ago I moved to NC. Miss those mom and pop kielbasa shops...that's how I got started making kielbasa down here. Was not available here in NC.

Good luck with the mes and happy smokin..

Would have started with a better first impression if I spelled ELECTRIC properly in the title!!!!!!! I am located in Bethlehem. Moved from NJ in 1987 and never looked back. Still work there. Jersey wages are a nice thing in PA.

I will look into that course for sure. Can always learn something new.

I feel kind of funny saying this since I'm new here also, but Welcome anyway! I love this site! And it looks like it's growing at a fast pace..... I'm not surprised!

LOL..... the new Electorc Smoking Machine..... it really torques out the smoke! Sorry I couldn't help it :-)

Dan give some chunk wood a try you may need to chop it down some but buy it sure does put out the smoke.
Good luck again with the MES40 got mine last week and the only day I have not used it is my days at the fire station.
