chip box

  1. Ok, I couldn't wait for my a-maze-n smoker to arrive (sorry Todd), so I fired up my brand new MES40 this morning and I am four hours into some nice looking butts. Here's a question... I've added chips three times so far and see that wonderful TBS coming out.... is there a point where I need to dump the residue ash before adding more chips?
  2. I never dump the ash until the smoke is finished David.It is never that much ash when the tray is emptied. The less a person opens the door the sooner your meat will finish. Good luck with your first smoke and don't forget the Q-Views.[​IMG]

    On a long smoke you may have to dump the ash 1 time.

  4. So Al, how often do you add chips. That's one thing I'm still a little confused on when it comes to Electric Smoking?

    Add a small handful of chips every 30-40 minutes

    Don't try overload the pan with a huge handful of chips at one time
