We have had a rare east wind here in central Ohio for about a week now. The vent pipe that I had attached to the MES 30 was vented on the east wall of the garage. The wind has was making it almost impossible to draw smoke through the smoker. And you know what they say "not being able to make jerky is the mother of all invention" or something like that, lol. So here was the solution, and a batch of Eric's Hot Pepper Jerky is in the MES 30 as I am posting this. http://m.youtube.com/?client=mv-goo...ch?v=Szhwvq_ZpuI&feature=youtube_gdata_player I was made aware that the first link did not work for everyone, but this link will Thanks for looking everyone.
