top or bottom rack mes 30

  1. Smoking 2 8lb butts tonight, my question is do I get more smoke with meat on top rack as apposed to bottom? Seems as if I get a better crust on top and meat is finished before bottom rack. I really want a nice crust and smoke floor this time. I always leave my vent wide open when smoking until I wrap.

    I'm no expert, just commenting on my experiences with the MES30. The top rack seems like it would work best to me ( And is what I always use ), smoke is going to rise and the temperature at the top should be more constant than it would be closer to the bottom near the heating element.
  3. It's up to you where you want to put it. I know I'm late but I usually use the 2nd rack from the top on mine for butts - the top rack is almost always reserved for salt. That's just what works best for me...
