Default Why did I do it

Well maybe it was because this little guy way all alone in the corner of the garage sale unused and un loved or maybe its because i will have some time to do some venison and elk jerky and sausage this year and this would be great for it or just maybe it was because I got the farking thing for $75 who the fark could pass that up!!!! So will this thing do some acceptable Q?

I don't know about BBQ on it (not in a negative way - I mean I really have no knowledge), but I've been looking for a score just like that for smoking sausages, hams, etc. Nice work and congrats!

There are a few guys smoking on those. Search for Masterbuilt or MES and you'll find some info.

There are lots of videos on youtube about that cooker in specific. I think you will be more than happy with any que that comes from that cooker!

After watching those videos I do believe they are extreemely efficient, and with the right amount of wood chips, you will have some of the best flavored que you ever had.

On second thought, I heard they are really dangerous and should never ever be used in NY, PA, CT, RI, or any of the surrounding states. It should be shipped directly to Zephyrhills, FL and disposed of properly. PM me for addy.......

I started on the Masterbuilt 30" and it was super easy to use and was great to start out on. While you won't get the deep smoke ring and flavor of other smokers it still worked well. I've heard they are great for jerky. Now you kind of make me wish I still had mine....

I have the MES 40":

Everything I've done on it came out great - ribs, prime rib roast, chicken, pork shoulder etc. Leave the ash drawer open 1/4 inch or so to produce more smoke.

Unfortunately, I haven't fired her up since I bought the WSM 22.5.....

I would have done it, too. It should be good for the stuff you mentioned.

Nice score....
Where can i get one for that?
You can produce good quality bbq on that with a little practice.
I have smoked chickens,turkeys, briskets, ribs,jerky on the one i have.
If you want to smoke cheese, get the temp up 225 to produce smoke and then lower the temp to 145 and put the cheese in.
I need to get it out and use it some this winter.
I have used pellets, wood chips, charcoal in the tray without incident.
You mileage may vary.
I don't think you can over smoke anything in it.
