Finally seasoned my MES 40. It's been in my garage for a month. Wife and mother-in-law went together and bought for me for Christmas . Not only did it set in my garage I had to put it there(ups left it on porch). So all I could do was go to the garage and stare:drool: WHO does that!!! I even begged them to let me do the first Christmas turkey!! NOPE!!! I know deep down the enjoyed Torturing me I know it!! Anyway enough pity party. Hope to have some Q view soon!!! Oh yeah one more thing I'm now a premier member. Yahoo!!! The knowledge I have learned here and keep learning is priceless!!! This site rocks!!
