I've been reading the forum for about 3 months now. I've purchased an MES 30 with window and have had moderate success smoking. Here's what I've done so far. Ribs - first time turned out really tough. Will try the 221 method next time! Fattie - turned out excellent! Pork loin - bacon wrapped, excellent! Chicken Legs - too much smoke, almost made me sick after eating a couple. Whole Chicken - one of the best most juiciest chickens I've ever had! Here's what I want to do next. Pork Butt Ribs till I get them to perfection. Sausage/Ring Balogna after I shoot another deer this fall. Wish me luck.
