  1. Hey all! Been reading the forums for quite a while, thought I had finished my Roll Call. 

    Currently have a Masterbuilt Dual Fuel Propane Smoker and a Gen 1 MES (which just died, no heat at the element) Waiting on my MES 2.5 to arrive any day now.......

    Welcome from another Long Islander! I started smoking with the same dual fuel a couple of years back and this forum made it so much easier! Just two years later and this hobby consumes me. You have been warned haha. Don't get rid of the old MES if you aren't going to fix it. Make it a dedicated cold smoker for cheese and bacon and all sorts of stuff.
  4. So, I was using my MES for bacon, but the process i have been using involves steppling up the temps from 120 to 165 throughout the process. Once the new one arrives (tomorrow) i wil season and smoke a batch I have had curing since the 11th!

    I will not trash the 1st gen, I will do something with it. I have seen on here where people have drilled out the rivets of the old burner and used the gen 2 burner as a retrofit. 

    Nothing like cold smoking after 2 feet of snow, right?
  5. [​IMG]   Good evening and welcome to the forum, from a cloudy and cool day here in East Texas, and the best site on the web. Lots of great people with tons of information on just about  everything.

    Yeah haha I shoveled most of my deck so I could get to most of my cookers. I'm glad I did too because the sun today melted the ice that I left behind.
