Hello all! Not new to smoking but new to electric smoking. Love smoking in Austin, TX--own a home there. I'd travel to Austin 2-3 times a year to get my stash of smoked brisket and then return home to CA where I work. Now, my travels to Austin are limited, and I don't want to short supply my family and friends with my TX smoked brisket, so I am trying this new MES 30. I hope that they turn out as good as the real TX smokin' brisket. I am enjoying all the good feeds in this forum and would love to learn more, as I also would like to venture outside of brisket in this smokin' life.
