Just bought me a new MES 40 never used a electric smoker before always been a diehard stick burner but with working six days a week now I just don't have time to watch over my big smoker. figured id get me one of these electric smokers and give it a shot put on two boston butts and was very unhappy with the results hardly any smoke flavor and no bark at all. I could have gotten the same results cooking them in my oven. Ive got to be doing something wrong im guessing I used wood chips it seemed to burn them to ashes at first but then noticed it wasn't burning them at all. I did some research and seen some people talking bout using a smoke daddy got to looking at it and figured id make one my self since ive got a welder and plasma cutter wouldn't be hard got it all put together going to give it a shot this weekend puts off a lot of smoke ill get some pics on here once I get it mounted to the unit.
