Got my A-Maze-N-Smoker yesterday and couldn't wait to try it out. Ran a little maple in it yesterday just to try it and it's pretty cool. The first issue is where to put it in the MES. I figure since I'm not planning on using chips in the MES I removed a bunch of the chip tray mounting parts. Then I just laid a piece of thin steel on top of the chip loader box/under the water pan to stop dripping. There's space in front of and behind for smoke to come up. I got the 6x8 and then I just put it on the left side of the drip tray. That way I can also light it and take it out handling the drip tray and not having to handle it directly. I loaded it up with half maple and half apple and I'm going to do some baby backs burning both ends. These are my first pics with my new EVO 4G, not sure why it sized them all over the place.. Hmm, in the post the pictures were all different sizes, in the actual thread they're just huge..
