MES with cold smoker

Discussion in 'Electric Smokers' started by big eata 9, Jun 1, 2016.

  1. I recently got the cold smoker to go with my MES 40" with window. I'm not sure I'm sold on it after multiple uses. I've smoked a few shoulders, and a few racks of ribs on it. It doesn't appear as if the smoke is even rolling over the meat as much as leaking out top of smoke box, and point where cold smoker connects to my MES. Can anyone give me any pointers on what I'm doing wrong or similar experiences? Thanks

    I usually put something heavy on the lid.

    Also put a fan on low in front of the smoker box with the ash tray cracked open about 1/2".

    I have a piece of stove pipe between the two of them too.

    Here's a photo of the way I have it setup.

    Hope this helps.

  3. Thanks for the advice! I'll try that.
