  1. My name is Ken and i have been reading on the forum for 3-4 months.Ive been wanting to smoke for a long time and i finally did it.I live 28 miles from Penn state .Im sure everyone knows where Penn State is . Now that hunting is over and the ground is almost froze so i have to quit metal detecting i needed something for the cold months.I decided to smoke things on the weekends. I have done 3 BBB and 10 pound of cheese. I was using a dorm size refridgerator for smoking the cheese.I work in a student housing complex so there easy to come by. They work very good for cold smoking cheese.Well 1 month ago i was in Lowes and they had Mes 30s on the shelf for 179. I looked at Walmart online and they were 173. I took the ad to Lowes and ended up getting it for 157. What a deal. I just smoked ribs in the Mes and they were awesome. The first week i did 2 whole chickens.They were good but i need to work on the chickens. My coworker has since took the ad to Lowes and got one to.I just cant get enough of this smoking hobbie. I have smoked cheese and BBB for Xmas presents for the family. Well thats all for now . I got to read the forums.
