Introducing Myself, as suggested

  1. Hi.  I´m Jonathan P., handle El Toro Furioso from Jalisco, Mexico.  I retired at 53 in 2003 and we moved full time to Mexico 10 years ago.  I did some smoking when we still lived in New York on a Brinkmann water smoker, the $45 USD kind.  I had great results with a variety of things from wild salmon filets to up to two 14 pound turkeys at once, brined then rubbed with a marinade under the skin for another 12 plus hours before smoking.  We recently drove to the US where I picked up a Smokin´ It No. 2 electric smoker.  I love it.  Then I found a barely used MES 40 inch with window at a charity bazaar.  I love it so far too.  We live 6 months of the year in a home we bought on the beach in La Manzanilla del Mar on the Tenacatita Bay and the other half of the year on Lake Chapala outside of Guadalajara.  So now I have an electric smoker for each house.  I won´t have to haul the Smokin´It back and forth like I had planned.  Will be testing the MES next week with baby back ribs.  I´ll use the Smokin´ It rib hooks that came with the smoker and just hang the racks from the top grate.  Having the window has got to be a good thing, at least reassuring that havoc isn´t taking place inside that tight-sealed box.  I´m looking forward to learning as much as possible from the more experienced members of Smoking!
