Just got a MES 40 and a cold smoker attachment. My only experience is grilling (Hot and FAST). [I can cook pizza on that Weber summit in 3 minutes flat] So, I'm going to take a bit to learn Low and Slow... I'm crazy excited to master this thing. My first attempt was pretty bad: I tried jerky but the result was overly smokey and acrid tasting. I Loaded the cold smoker attachment nearly full of dry chips (peach). I'm sure it was too much and too dry but constructive criticism is welcome.
