Hello everyone. I'm Enoch, 44 years old, and I was born and raised in Washington, DC. For the last 7 years, I've lived in Bowie, Maryland, just outside of DC. I bought my first smoker, and MES 30" in 2010, and just received my second 40" MES about a month ago. The 40" I bought in 2012 basically rotted out, at least the wiring did. I purchased an AMNPS recently and although I can get a consistent smoke, its not intense enough, so I'm hoping to get some help here. I've been trying new things and perfecting my food since the beginning and look forward to learning and growing as a member of this forum. When not smoking meat, I love to ride my motorcycle and am a single, widowed parent to my 8 year old son.
