Hey everyone, I am new to the world of forums and I think I posted my previous hello to the wrong area. But, after a week or so perusing this forum, I think I've got my bearings. My names Copter, and I'm from the southern suburbs of the Twin Cities. I received a MES 30 for fathers day and per many recomendations here I picked up an AMNPS. That product sure takes the leg work out of smoking. I attempted my first smoke over the weekend, a pork butt. Smoked it for 13 hours. Turned out great, but I slightly over seasoned it. Live and learn right. I can't wait til I can fire it up again. Planning on turkey legs tonight. I've been brineing them for 3 days. I never knew what a community he smoking world was and I'm glad to be a part of it. This site has already helped me and I'm sure it will be my saving grace many times in the future.
