My wife bought me a new 30 inch MBES for christmas. It's the one with a dial on the plug not a digital. It doesn't have an adjustable vent.Just a 1 inch hole in the top corner. I have smoked chicken quarters and country style ribs on it but I'm not getting a good smoke flavor. I have used mesquite wood for the ribs and apple for the chicken. The meat looks like it was cooked in the oven not on a smoker. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. The chips seem to be smoldering it has a small amount of smoke coming out of the hole.
