  1. Wife got me a materbuilt electric smoker for christmass.  Looking forward to learning the right way to smoke for everyone, and  find some good ideas. Going to try Mac n cheese with baby backs next weekend for the rose bowl. Saw a good recipient in John mclemore s web site I want to try.

    Welcome to SMF!!

     There are many mes users here, including Me.

     You can put out some real good smoked goodies w/ it.

     The first thing you need to do is get a good wireless thermometer and check it's calibration. then place this in the mes and verify cooking temps. some units will show a temp on the read out but actually be 5 -15 + - .once you know your actual cooking temp then you can adjust accordingly.
  3. Good idea, will do. Thanks

    First off welcome to SMF there Duckie. You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course. It is free and it will also give you the basics on smoking. So with all that said now go and get something to smoke.

    Welcome To Your New Addiction
