WooHoo, TBS on an MES...

  1. So,
    Smoking the Canadian Bacon as I type.
    Being new to the MES, I struggled with using Hickory Chips (which were actually a blend with Alder and more sawdust than chips) vs Hickory Chunks.
    I was worried that the chunks would not smoke at the 170-180 I was smoking at.

    Anyway, to get the chunks to fit, I had to split them to about 1in x 1in x 3 in sticks.

    Man NO problem with smoke at 170. Even to the point that I was initially worried about too much smoke, but it calmed down to a nice steady thin stream.

    My last smoke I used pellets, but they tended to be too much smoke initally, and then burn out quick.

    My first load of stick has lasted over an hour. Way cool.

    Glad to hear you got the wood burning technique down for your smoker. That was something I worked on all the time when I used my ecb.
