Hi From Minnesota

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by beartoo, Mar 28, 2015.

  1. Just join the forum yesterday, I am glade to find it. I have done some smoking in the last couple of years. I still need to learn a lot more. I've only smoked a few things, Turkey thighs and legs, pork ribs, small pork loin. 

    I have a "Brinkmann Gourmet" electric smoker. I will be ordering a MES 40" electric in the next couple of months. It has to warm up a bit before I can fire up.  I also have tried Dutch oven cooking which some stuff has turned to ashes. I hope to smoke some sausage this spring after I get the new smoker.

    Unit last October my wife and  i did a lot of camping here in Minnesota, she had me sell the works.

    Well I hope to here from some of you, I am glade to be here.

    Welcome Beartoo!!

    In case you haven't read a lot of posts on this forum yet, I will suggest since you are getting an MES 40, please be sure to get the Gen #1 MES 40. It is Awesome!! That is the one with the digital controls in a box that gets mounted to the back center of the top, and the vent is on the top back right corner. The one you should avoid (Gen #2) has the controls built into the top front edge of the smoker, and has the vent on the left side wall instead of on the top.

    There is also a new one out, the Gen #2.5, but not very many review on it yet.

  4. Welcome, lots of great info here....
