Ok so 2 days ago my new MES40 Gen 2 arrived. Yesterday my AMNPS and pellets arrived and seasoned the MES. Today I just had to smoke something so had the wife pick up a pack of chicken quarters for my first smoke since they are hard to mess up and pretty cheap. Set MES to 275 and let preheat to about 240. While preheating I put on some garlic/herb spices on 4 (back) and the remaining 4 I used a good amount of Tony's Creole! Put in my chicken and AMNPS. Roughly 2.5 hours later once the IT hit 170 I pulled out these beautiful quarters! I then put em under the broiler in my oven for roughly 3 min to crisp up the skin. Man do they ever taste wonderful! I cannot wait until this weekend and trying to figure out what my 2nd smoke is going to be! I am tore between trying a FATTY (since they look so delicious) or some ribs? I am up for suggestions!
