I have a MES 30" and have been doing a lot of reading on here. I read in the instruction manual to only load about a half cup of wood chips in it at a time, and let it burn before adding more. After reading a few posts on the MES I have seen some people say they add wood chips until it is full. That would be nice that way I don't have to refill it and watch it as much. I am new to this so am looking for you MES users to help me get the most out of my smoker. What to do? How do you know when it is full, will it just not add more chips? Sorry to bug you all with "stupid" questions too.
