    Hey there Guys,
    I just ordered a MES 30" and it should be here by monday. I've been using a charcoal grill for about 4 years now and decided to take the next step. I'm looking at a brisket as my first experiment, any suggestions? Also, I live in middleburg FL so if anyone knows of any good butcher shops, I'd appreciate it.

  5. Hello Whitee and welcome to SMF! Congrats on the smoker!

    First off with an MES (Masterbuilt Electric Smoker) get yourself a good thermometer both for internal meat temp and for checking the smoker chamber temp. Some have been notorious at being off in the actual temps of the chamber as compared with the set temp. Keep in mind, especially if you are doing a whole packer brisket, that it's going to take a long time!!! Figure 1.5 - 2 hrs per lb. Foiling at 160* IT is a personal preference. 

    Good luck and let us know how it all turns out!
