Hi all, My names Jeff my friends call me Jefe. Bbq'n and cooking is my hobbie. But I've never used a smoker before. I asked for a smoker for Xmas and got a MES 30 and also got a request for Xmas dinner to go with it! I'm from the central coast of California but now reside in Slinger Wisconsin. This website is awesome place for info! Hope to share as much as I learn from this site.
