    Todd, you could NOT of named this most wonderful smoking tool with a better name than you have!! I got to use mine for the very first time this weekend (Wed-Thurs) and did a cold cheese smoke with excellent results!!

    I also finished off a beef roast with it and I must say, I am going to have to buy the 6x8 and add it to my kit of tools. It is a wonder how I ever managed without it before--as I KNOW I will never be without at least two of them from now on!

    Thanks again sir and keep up the excellent work!

    the AMNS has been one of the best investments i've made for my smoker.  cold or hot smoking, it works great!  i do have to nuke my dust to dry it, other than that i have no complaints.

    I am in the process of cleaning up the spot on my patio where the wood and black widow spiders used to be.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Going to try out my shiny new AMNS tomorrow on some spares. Anyone got an idea on how many rows i need to fill  on a 6x6 for 3 - 4 hours smoke???

    They can vary, but I would say, if you're only going to light one end, fill it halfway across. Normally that would get you 3 or 4 hours.

    I always fill and light both ends an when I am done I save the unused dust for the next smoke but to be honest, I am a smoke head

    I realize this is too late but I have noticed that it all depends on the dust. The Pecan I have is longer fibers and seems to burn a bit slower. I can get 2+ hours out of one row (depending on the temp); usually it is closer to 2.

    Here is a 6X8 tip, for hot smoking, in the MES. I've been filling the two outside rows and the middle row. Then I connect the outside rows to the middle row by filling the adjoining rows 1/4 of the way. Put it in your MES and light the side facing away from the heating element. What happens, for me at least, is the dust will jump rows so it burns all 3 rows with only lighting one. The key is to light the row away from the element because the element aids in the final "row skip". I know that sounds confusing but it is the best I can do without a picture. If anybody requests one I can post one later.

    Using that method I can hot-smoke for 5-6+ hours easy, without refilling.

  19. I liked the idea so much I stole his idea and built my own. It works great. I figured free was better than $30. Since I am poor and cheap. And I had the perfect piece of metal lying in my basement for the last 15 years. I do buy the dust though. Love the alder. Don't worry Todd I am not planning on making any more.  Too muck work. For 30 dollars it really is a bargain.

    I really need to pick up one of these little gadgets. I've read nothing but 5 star praise so it's definitely on my "wish" list. I'm just curious, do you have to use the dust sold on their web site or will any brand work as well?
