    Hello everyone,

    My name is Mike and I just bought myself the MES 30 (not the glass door model, but the one with the vent on top).

    I love to cook and I make a lot of beer and have been wanting to get into smoking for a while now. I picked up the MES yesterday, plan on seasoning it today and getting something into a brine or rubbed to sit in the fridge over night and do the first smoke tomorrow.

    Also I plan on getting the meat grinder attachment for the kitchenaid mixer and doing sausages.

    I am in Reno NV (for now) but CA , Sacramento area is home. I just wanted to introduce myself and say thanks for all the info. I have already learned a ton in the last few hours of research.

    Thanks again everyone.

    Welcome to the board, Mike! Consider starting with chicken to learn your rig, as it's inexpensive in case anything goes wrong.
