    I've been using my MES30 gen 1 now for a while and everything is working well.  I use both hickory pellets and some cherry wood chunks that I made from a tree I cut down.  The cherry seems to give a sweeter flavor to pork which I like.  The question is - What is the purpose of the adjustable vent?  Do I ever want to partially or fully close it while cookng?

    Also, Will liguid in the water pan increase the moistness of the meat?  I tried a brisket and it was a little dry.  Is beer a good choice for beef and apple juice for pork?
