You Guys On This Forum Are Great!

  1. Hello To All. I am new to the smoking community. I am from east central south dakota. I have cooked low and slow doing ribs for the day over charcoal with some success and now am going to get into smoking. I did alot of research before deciding which smoker was best for me. I had narrowed it down to a cabinet style electric smoker......Now for the which one..... This is where you guys came in. I read alot of different things and was at first leaning towards the bradly but I have decided on the Masterbuilt 40 Model 200070311. I hope this unit serves me well. I sure read alot of various things about these and have learned alot along the way. I had come to find out there is three different model numbers of the 40" unit and after a discussion with masterbuilt decided on this one. They seemed to "Have Time" for my questions which is sure a good quality in a company. Well I cant wait to do some experimenting soon. You guys have some awesome looking recipes that you have come up with WOW! Well, I should be recieving this unit early next week. Any pointers on initial startup to save me any confusion would be great, Thanks For All The Good Info~!

    [​IMG]  to SMF. You have come to the right place for smoking info. This site is loaded with great info just use the search bar at top of page to find what you are looking for. If you can't locate the answer just ask folks here are willing to share there knowledge. I suggest you take  the 5 day e-course on smoking its chuck full of great info. Smoking  5-Day e-Course

    The only advice I can give on your electric unit is make sure you use a heavy extension cord if you use 1 at least a #12. Also make sure you season it before you smoke any meat, your directions will more then likely tell you how to do this.

  12.    Hello and welcome to the forum. I have an MES 40 and I love it. In time you will probably want to add the A-MAZE-N-PELLET smoker (AMNPS). These are an awesome combination.

  13. Hello and welcome to SMF! I too have an MES 40 and love it.
