New To Smoking

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by poetryww, Dec 31, 2009.

  1. First I want to thank the person that alerted me to SAMS having the new 40" Masterbuilt Electric Smoker. I called the Buckner store and they had 8 in stock on Wed. They now have 7. [​IMG] I seasoned it yersterday evening and preped some baby back ribs last night according to the instructions outlined in the forums. I can't wait to get them going today. I plan on using Hickory and maybe some apple chips for the first 2 hours in the 2-2-1 process. I have been using a barrel type for years but was curious about the electric smokers because of this forum. It is all your fault, SMF. I do have a couple of questions (actually a lot) but that will come later, Do I leave the damper open or closed during the cook? Also, do you use the water pan for ribs? Thanks for the forum and hoping to post some pictures soon.

    Thanks again,

    Welcome to SMF James. Yeah, we kind of get the blame for a lot of things but it's all good.

    As to your questions about the damper and the use of the water pan for ribs, I suggest you post those questions in the Electric Smoker section of the forum. There are a lot of watt-burners that use the MES smoker that will be more than happy to answer your MES related questions.

  5. I will post on the Electric Smoker section.

    James. you're starting out on the good foot by joining the SMF. It's all good my friend.
  9. Welcome to the forum, If they talked you into the MES from Sam's I (happily) regret to inform you that they are going to talk you into a billion more things that you absolutely must smoke in that bad boy.
