Hey all! Tim for NJ here! I've been grilling for a long time but, I'm a newbie when it comes to smoking. My brother is the smoke master using a traditional smoker but, I'm all about being a little lazy. LOL I got a MES 40 for and took it for its maiden voyage yesterday. Smoked a brisket flat, pork shoulder, three racks of baby backs and mac n cheese. All really good..... I look forward to getting great tips and ideas from this forum!
