Hi everyone, It's a beautiful sunny warm day in the Black Hills of SD, finally! This is my first day for using my MES 30. I was up at 4 AM and started the smoker. At 4:30 the brisket went on with mixture of hickory and pecan. It smells so good and I have BLUE smoke. Also have a rack of spare ribs I'll put on a little later. Can't wait to see the results.
