  1. Hi All,
    New to forum - well as a member. I just recently got a MES 30 for my birthday, which I knew I was getting so I have been perusing the forums for a few months now in anticipation.

    I attempted my first smoke yesterday - two birds. Used the Slaughterhouse Poultry Brine (Awesome) and my own rub (S&P, sugar - brown and white, garlic power, onion powder, cinnamon, chili powder).

    Cooked them at about 240 (although not sure how accurate it is given the MES issues I have read on the accuracy) to 163 then threw them on the grill to crisp up the skin and coated them with some BBQ sauce.

    Came out delicious and family was very impressed - was super juicy. Did not have as much of a smokey flavor that I expected - maybe because I used apple chips which I believe produces more of a tame smokey flavor?

    Using the left overs for tacos tonight :)

    Anyway - already addicted. Pic below:

    There u go. I would dump the chips and move to pellets. AMNPS or 12" Tube Smoker can roll smoke longer and less hassle. Good luck.

If you don't find the answer there then just post it and someone will chime in with their opinion on the subject.

    Those are some tasty looking birds!!
    I agree with ElginPlowboy get an AMNPS or a 12" Tube Smoker eliminates the hassle of adding chips.

    Always remember the only dumb question is the one you don’t ask!!
    Keep Smokin!!!
    Wolf
