Finally got me a MES

  1. I have been admiring all the tasty smoked meats for some time but did not have a smoker. Well I finally found a gently used MES 30 Gen 1 at a yard sale for $10. So I decided it was time to sign up officially and become part of the community. I got some CSRs bagged up in the fridge. Going to smoke them Saturday. Hope they come out tasty.

    Glad to have you aboard!

    Congrats on the new smoker!

  4. Thanks Guys! Trying my first batch of CSRs today. Hope the rain holds off. I'm in Louisiana in the flood area.

    This rain sucks!  Good luck with your CSRs, I've got two racks of BBs that I want to smoke tomorrow.  

  6. Here in Louisiana when it floods we all start thinking about food. Here is the first batch of country style ribs I have ever smoked. The MES did a good job. 5lbs and no leftovers to be found. I served then up with a jalapeno & cheese corn muffin, baked beans, potato salad and sweet tea.

    That is an excellent plate!  No wonder there are no leftovers!  [​IMG]

    Hope you're high and dry!  Just saw lots of flooding on the news.  The Southshore hasn't had all that rain.

  14. Mike,

    We are high and dry but most of the roads around us are flooded. A lot of our friends have had their houses flooded for the second time this year. So sad.

  15. Looks Great
