OK, so i bought my MES becasue i wanted the satisfaction of perfectly smoked foods, but yet the easiness and little time it takes to manage... I'm looking for ways to give me smoke without having to always add in more chips every hour or two.. I've looked at the smoke daddy, but that seems to give me 2 to 3 hours of smoke... For a brisket for example, is 3 hours enough smoke and the rest of the time just letting the mes cook it without smoke??? OR I also found this link for a longer smoke: http://www.bbqrsdelight.com/whatsnew.html The smoke stick claims it can go 3 hours+. If I combine the smoke stick with the smoke daddy, it can go for even longer.. What are some methods you use to make it truly a set it and forget it???
