    Can't believe I haven't started smoking before now.   But better late then never.  The best bbq I have had has always come from a pit (raised in the deep South) or here in Texas where I reside now.  Cluelessly, always thought one had to slave over a pit to have good q. Fortunately, someone I work with mentioned how easy it was to smoke on an electric smoker (hadn't even heard of those).  So last fall I bought a MES 30" 20070411 and AMNPS.  First smoke was a pork butt and it went great.  Started branching out to other pork products, turkey and brisket.  The tips on this forum helped a lot but my learning curve still has a way to go.  Unfortunately, the original MES I had broke (controller went out) and Masterbuilt sent me a new one but mentioned it might not be the same model.  Well, they were right -- received a 20077515, which I do not like as much as the first one.  Still trying to work it out but am hooked on smoking now.
