Hello folks, my name is Les-but I go by Beerbelly. Got me a MES a couple of weeks back and got online to find out how to smoke and ended up here. Sure seems to be the right place to learn about smoking meat. I spent a couple of hours the other day reading the posts and really learned a lot. Can't believe how serious you people get about smoking. I am not sure that some of the things you do with a poor old pound of breakfast sauage is even legal here in this area. LOL Haven't made any fatties yet but got stuff today to make some. I live in northwest New Mexico. When I get time will post some pics. Happy to be here!!!
