I am Cathy, live in MN and new to smoking. I have always wanted to order the MES from QVC, but never did until my husband said he wanted to give it a try. Our Maiden smoking Voyage was a pork butt from Dadgum II... the one with the rub and mustard. It was very tasty! The 2nd attempt was the sweet and spicy chicken wings that were a HUGE hit at a party. I live in MN, but I am Canadian. Canada Day is on Monday, so I am having some friends over on Sunday for a BBQ to celebrate. Was thinking of doing Dadgum II Pulled Pork Sandwiches with his BBQ sauce. So far, learning the ropes has been fun, it certainly is a learning curve. Can't wait to try more recipes!
