Hello all. Newbie joining from Sharon, MA. Just ordered an MES 30" and the AMNPS Package #3 and can't wait to start smoking for more than 4-5 months of the year (previously used a Brinkmann Bullet charcoal smoker which had terrible heat control). Have been smoking for the last two years and have been pretty successful with pulled pork and chicken, but less so with brisket and ribs. Look forward to joining the forum and using my new smoker and AMNPS.
