    LOL---My Son's coming down there in 2 weeks for a "Train the Trainer" Tower Safety course.

    They have to renew their cards every 2 years, so instead of paying $1000 for each of his 12 climbers, he pays $2000 for his "Train the trainer course".

    Then he qualifies to train his guys himself. He has to do this every two years, and it's always in a different place. This time in Texas.

    Good way to save $10,000.

    Bear I dont see turkey on here?  I was thinking about Thanksgiving and how great it would be to smoke one.  Do a lot of people do smoked turkey?

    Thanks Cliff !!

    Glad you like it !!

    Nope---No Turkey---Sorry.

    Turkey is one of the things my Son smokes, and shares with us, so I don't do them. He does't cure things, so I share cured things with him.

    There are a bunch of Turkey Smokes around----Jeff has a good one---Click on  Jeff's Smoking Meat

    You can find that at the bottom of my Index page too.

    Hey Bearcarver, on your MES 40 where exactly do you place your AMZN pellet tray? 

    A picture would be great.

    I have an old MES 30, with my AMZN pellet tray it was such a PIA to stay lit, I drilled an 1.5" hole in the side, works great!

    I am thinking about upgrading to the MES 40 and see you are using an AMAZN pellet tray, how's it work? Does it stay let well?

    I have been using my MES 30 with an AMZN tray for years without much problems, just wondering your experience with the new MES 40 and the AMZN tray.

    Thanks for any help!

    I have the MES 40 BT you can see in the pic above.  This setup is great once I can actually get the AMPS lit.  I'm having issues but others are finding success.  I highly recommend it.

    Hi John!

    It depends on which MES 40 you get.

    If you get the Generation #1, like mine, it will be best as in my Pic below.

    If you get the Gen #2.5 Bluetooth, the best places seem to be where "mummel" has his in post #127, or setting it on one of the ends of the Water Pan.

    Those are the two that the AMNPS works best in.

    I would say if you are at a high altitude, you should get the Tube smoker (AMNTS), but since you've been using the AMNPS in your MES 30, you should be good with it in your MES 40.

    Hope that helps,

    Bear

    Thanks Guys! 

    I was just wondering if I would have to cut a hole in my new MES40 if I bought one... no big deal if I have to LOL!

    Ever since I added the left vent hole in my MES30 and super vent stack pipe my AMAZN has never went out.

    I have burnt the element and replaced it once, fried the connectors 3 times from some extended 18hr smokes too. 

    She still keeps chuggin along, I sure would like to have the extra space though, THAT would be nice.

    I love that air inlet set-up, John !![​IMG]

    You could do that with an MES 40 too, if needed.

    Are those "Bear Loaves" in that last Pic??

    One thing----I'd be careful not to cover racks nearly completely with foil or pans, and block air flow.

    OK---I did that one time---Way back!!

    Here's something you might like better, and cheaper & no Shipping charges.

    Also an easy way to keep the shape of the loaf:

    Smoked Mini-Bear-Loaves (All Beef)

  15. Sorry Bear, I'm guilty of this I think we all just take it for granted.

    From now on you'll get my 2 cents worth when I try one of your "step by steps"

    Cheers.

    No--Sorry Kurt.

    I only put things in this Index that need a lot of Information in Step by Step Form.

    Not a whole lot of steps in a Reverse Sear Steak.

    I got Hundreds of Smokes on this Forum, but this Index is Special, and most of my Smokes don't make this list.

    Thanks for asking though!!  I Appreciate it.
