It's weird saying hello from Utah, but that's where I am at right now. Just moved from Savannah GA area. Mine name is Steve. I like animals that have given their life for my sustainment and also happen to be delicious. I'm in Tooele county UT right now. I hope the Lord takes me back to the south, but until then....I'll be here. Elevation here is 4300'. I have MEB 30" Electric Smoker Model # 20072415. I have had it for less almost a year. I love it. I have recently ran into a problem with it though: the smoker element doesn't stay on long enough. It will smoke awesome for about 30 minutes. There are no other issues with it. No click. Temp gauge works. I wish I could control when that thing comes on. I'm not the most experienced smoker. I generally just do brisket, ribs and chicken. I am still learning, but recently I have accomplished something I have been aiming for over year: to make a simple, delicious, low-hassle brisket. I just wish it had a little more smoke flavor. I want to smoke that brisket fairly good for about 2.5 hours. So nice meeting you guys and if you have any pointers to this issue I got, that would be greatly appreciated.
