  1. I just wanted to report back after sun. I smoked a almost 17lb. turkey I cut it up I used the same spicy apple rub I used on my spachcock chickens a couple of weeks ago somebody told me on this site to put Mayonnaise on the turkey & chickens before I put the rub on & the skin come out great & crispy I have a Mes-40 the chickens took only about 2hrs. to smoke the turkey took about 3 & a half hrs. temp was on both 250 with turkey turned down on last hour so it would take a little longer to cook can't show pics because have not a new camera after wife dropped & broke it----------Ken

  2. Sounds good, so the mayo made a difference? I'll have to keep that in mind and I'm going to try your apple rub too. 
     

    I'm curious though...your MES 40 goes up to 350? Mine only goes to 275 or am I missing something?
     
  3. do you have a cell phone with a camera? thats all i use to take my pics with - and i would really like your recipe for your apple rub - gonna do some ribs this weekend and would like to use an apple rub on it - think it would go great with the apple butter sauce i have planned

  6. Gosh I thought I had missed something on mine!!!!! Yep I got mine at Sam's in Colorado Springs and pd about the same price. Mine has the glass window, which is not mandatory for me, but I do love the remote! Thinking of buying another one. [​IMG]
     
  7. thanks for the recipe - we're lucky to have a store here called the bulk barn - they sell a variety of spices and such in bulk including a plethora of dried fruits and veggies - no need to go thru the hassel of drying my own apples haha

  9. No not opening my own store but it seems I always have jerky, snack sticks or summer sausage on there and I want to smoke something else. I swear I smoke something every day of the week except weekends! That's when the significant other is home and I gotta spend time with him! I never upgraded the chip tray...wonder if it's too late?
