Hello from NW PA

  1. Hi everyone, my name is Matt and currently live in Russell, PA in Northwest PA.  I've been doing smoking on my Weber for several years and just bought a MES 30" Gen2.5 about a month ago.  I used the forum extensively in researching smokers.  I really liked all the information I was able to obtain so I pulled the trigger and became a member.

    I've done a couple smokes on the MES and they have turned out well, using as instructed.  I have now run across the AMNPS and will be getting one them.

    Currently, I'm running a temperature test with the iGrill Mini and a cheap Walmart RF thermometer.  Initial tests show the MES overruns about 25°F on heat-up.  The two temperature probes are reading about 10°F lower than the MES.  It also looks like the PID controller in the MES takes about 3 cycles to really get dialed in.  I will post the iGrill Mini data once my test is complete.  Also, I'm looking at getting the Maverick ET-733.  I was looking at the 735 but there seems to be issues with the app and I already have the iGrill.

    Can't wait for the fall and do my pheasants on the MES instead of the Weber, and cold smoking with the AMNPS.

    I look forward to learner and sharing where/when I can about the wonderful world of smoking. 

    Everything is better smoked regardless of what my wife thinks.  Smoke On!
