    I am new here, first post.  Although I have been reading the forums for about 2 days.  I just got a smoker, I think you guys call it the MES 30.  Masterbuilt Elesctric Smoker 30 inch.  No window and it has the digital timer and temp on the top.  I did preseason it, but that's it so far.  I was hoping to smoke something this is Saturday, but we have too many places to go.  I may grab some rub ingredients while we're out, some ribs and a brisket to get started though as soon as I can.  One thing I wanted to try was smoking hard boiled eggs, as my friend told me they are great.  But he also just told me I need to cold smoke those, which means I'll have to get the Masterbuilt Cold Smoker add-on or the A-Maz-N Pellet least from what I have read.  With the MB one, I see the benefit of longer smokes without having to add chips every 45-50 mins for regular smoking and I can use the same chips.  With the A-Maz-N, it's less expensive, runs long, but I'll have to get dust or pellets.  It also seems to have trouble staying lit.  So, I don't know.

    Anyway, great community here, happy to be a part of it, and I can't wait for my first smoke!

    I use the AMNPS with my MES and it works great. Just take the time to get it going.

    That is where most people have problems.
    Happy smoken.

    Welcome to the board! I suggest you start learning your smoker with chicken, as it's quick and inexpensive if it doesn't go right.
