Well, I just ordered an MES 30 digital after having a bit of bad luck with the Brinkmann electric. After reading all the posts about the AMS and AMPS I am curious what will work best in my new smoker coming next week. I'm curious which model will fit best, and what model will work best for both hot and cold smoking. I'm new to smoking, but I know all you guys will steer me in the right direction. Todd, feel free to chime in, I know you'll take good care of me. Thanks!
