in Lubbock, Texas. Casually lurked for a while but since I am the proud new owner of an MES 40" I thought I'd sign up and see what all I can learn. I also have a 12"x40" Uvalde grill with the trailer-hitch attachment so I can take it camping. So far on the MES I've done a pork butt that turned out well and I hope to do a brisket soon if I can get a good sale price. Is it true that it should fold in half in order to be a good one?
