Hello fellow smokers, well soon to be fellow smokers in my case. I’m a newbie with smoking. I just ordered my first smoker today. I went with the MES 30 from Amazon with a bag of apple wood chips. I relied heavily on the great recommendations I found on the site. I have been grilling for some time with charcoal and decided it was time to take the plunge after hearing my brother talk about smoking up some ribs. So, I talked with the wife and now my Christmas present is set to arrive this Thursday in time for Saturday’s game day festivities. I look forward to reading all the great articles and post. I know I will need more than a few helpful hints to get the ball rolling. My first smoke will most likely involve a chicken. Not sure how I want to go about it yet. I would love any tips or recipes you have for wings. They are a favorite in our house. Just a little about me. I’m 36 and recently got married to my wonderful wife Amber. We live in Alabama and can be found most football Saturdays with our friends around the grill with a cold beer watching the Tide Roll! Thanks for having me and hope to hear from everyone soon!!!
