So the fiancé got me an MES-30 for Christmas and well so far we've had the ups and downs. One brisket was way undercooked and the other was chewy and dry even though they were cooked the same way. Had a 5 pound slab of bacon turn out fantastic so that was a plus. Realized my probes weren't reading correctly after the brisket mishap so I ordered me a Maverick-732 and it should be here tomorrow. I plan on smoking a turkey this weekend after I test the new probes and see how far off the smoker is from what it says. Hopefully everything turns out great. Anyway I have been reading through a lot of stuff on here and I want to say I have already learned a lot!
