    Hey All, I just put my new MES40 together and am ready to do the "Pre-Season". It says to use wood chips but I only have pellets on hand. Any reason why they won't work or do I need to head to the store? I have a AMNPS so I won't be using the MES40 for anything but heating. Thanks.
  2. Why not just run the AMNPS for the final 45 minutes of the seasoning instead of wood chips?
  3. Why not run the AMNPS for the final 45 minutes instead of adding chips?  Seems like it would serve the same purpose.

    Pellets will work.
  5. I think the real question is, what are you going to smoker AFTER it's seasoned? [​IMG]

    Thanks all for the quick reply. I haven't gotten as far as what my first smoke will be as of yet. The AMNPS  (X-MAS gift) and the MES40 (bought 3 weeks ago) are were still in the boxes as of an hour ago. I finally have a few days off to get used to all of it. Thanks again for the info. I'll read the thread about taking and posting pics. Hopefully I can get that going also.
