    Hello all from San Antonio, Tx, I am new to smokin and already can see there is a lot more to it then getting a smoker, turning it on, shutting the door and expecting quality to come out. Just got an MES 30" for christmas and have tried several diff meats so far and all taste somewhat bitter (not trying to start discussion on bitterness of meats, I will go to correct section for this). So I am here to learn. I look forward to getting a lot of knowledge from the novice here and and learn from the mistakes of the rookies like me. Ty for allowing me to be part of this forum. I also have a weber grill in which I am very good at. Thats probably where the mistake came in that I thought I could hit the ground running with smokin. Well anyways hope everyone is having a great day.

    Welcome to the forum.  +The space bar at the top of the page is a great resource.  Have a question or a problem (such as your bitter q) simply search and read about it.  My thoughts on your bitter q surround too much smoke, in other words white billowing smoke.  You should strive for a thin blue smoke or TBS.  You may always post questions and someone will be along shortly to help you.

    Good luck, Richard

    Welcome from Canada, 210rtp.


    I had the same experience as you a couple of years ago. I picked up a Bradley smoker and didn't have much success until I found this forum. There are lots of ideas in the posts and many generous members who share their experience.

    I look forward to your posts.

  6. Big welcome to the forum. CF
  7. Congrats on the new smoker, looking forward to seeing you around the forum
