Hello from NW PA

  1. Hello everyone, my name is Matt.  I live in Russell, PA in Northwest PA.  I have been smoking on my Weber grill for several years.  I wanted to get into smoking with a true smoker and decided to start with an electric.  I got the MES 30" Gen 2.5 about a month ago and have done a couple of smokes with good results. 

    I used this site extensively when I was researching what to get and within the wife's budget allotment.  I did run into the AMNPS on here and will getting one for added smoke and cold smoking in the fall/winter.  I'm looking forward to doing pheasant this fall.

    Currently, I'm doing a temperature test with the MES and the iGrill Mini and a cheap Walmart RF thermometer.  So far I've found the that MES overshoots about 25°F on heat-up and then takes about 4 cycles for the PID controller to get dialed in.  Thermometers have been running 3-5°F apart and about 10°F less than the MES.  I will post the iGrill temp graph once I'm done with the test.

    I'm looking forward to learning more and sharing when I can.

    Everything is better with smoke regardless of what my wife says.  Smoke On!!!

    Welcome to the board, Matt! I learned to smoke in a Weber, with maple.
