Hi All, I've been lurking for a bit while researching which electric smoker to get. Total n00b smoker (long time griller). Was thinking of something like the Smokin-it, but ended up getting an MES 30 because the deal (thanks to tips from this forum) was too good to pass up. Using an a-maze-n pellet tray. Anyways, have done some St. Louis Ribs and Tri-Tip, but now have my first butt/shoulder on now. Also big into craft beer and bourbon. Cheers!
