First smoke on my mes30 and amps. Found my mes runs high. Set at 210° it runs 240° (testing with my maverick ET733 found this for me). Cut the slabs in half so they fit, will put them in in the next 15 mins or so. Using the 3-2-1 method. Wish me luck. My previous experience is on a offset woodburner. I could make awesome ribs on that, wanted to try an electric so I don't need to babysit the fire.
