Started browsing these forums this past Sunday when I found out my wife was buying me a smoker for my B-day. I've been wanting one for the past year or so, and my wish is finally coming true. She bought me the black, MES with the regular door. Hopefully, I can get it seasoned this week and smoke something this weekend. Looking at either doing a pork shoulder for pulled pork or some baby back ribs. Used to have a smoker a long time ago (can't remember the brand), but it got destroyed when we moved and just never got another one. Haven't done any smoking in the past 5 years and thought it was time to get back into it.
