So I bought a Cajun Injector 30" the other day at Gander Mountain on a whim. I knew the MES 30" was a decent little workhorse but didn't know much about it. I haven't opened it yet and yesterday got to work and decided to do some research. I was hoping for mods, tips, tricks, etc. Instead I found that this was probably not worth the money I spent since the CI is no longer a true MES clone. So I am taking that thing back and getting the MES 40" Digital with the remote. I already have 2 WSM 18.5" for competition but I wanted something a little easier for weekends and small smokes. I have 9lbs of pork belly getting picked up tomorrow from a butcher to do some bacon but I think I'll be seasoning the MES this weekend if I have time. I'm so glad to be back on this site. It's good to see the familiar folks and all the new folks!
