I've been lurking (and occasionally posting) here for a while now and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm just getting in to BBQ and smoking, and bought the MES from Sams Club to get started. Thanks to the wealth of information on this forum, my results are generally OK and quickly improving. In any case, my name is Darren and I live in a tiny, historical town called Mercersburg which is located in central PA -- just north of the Maryland border. I've never seena web site before that makes me so hungry.
