Hi everybody, my name is Elliott and I am a 27 year old virgin smoker. My birthday was last month and I received a few Amazon gift cards. Coincidentally the next week I had some amazing smoked chicken wings at a friends house. Right then I knew I had to have one. I found this forum and started researching. I decided on the MES 30 and an Amazen pellet smoker for good measure. Long story short, it is seasoning now with apple and hickory chips so I can see what the stock chip tray could do. I plan to smoke a little bit of everything, and am looking forward to gleening knowledge from the old hands!
