Pros: Easy, portable and works anywhere....

Cons: none

This smoke generator is a perfect match to an electric smoker.... I have an MES 30....  Generates smoke longer than is generally needed for most products....   No refilling... set it and forget it... Truly a great addition to your smoking arsenal.... 


Pros: consistant smoke

After reading the reviews and some of the issues of keeping the pellets smoking, i was a bit curious how my experience would be. I microwave my pellets everytime so they are good and dry and have never had a problem in my 40" MasterBuilt electric smoker. This is the greatest!!!! never worrying about adding more chips. Now my only concern is not over smoking, what a good problem to have.


Pros: Burns dust OR pellets for long extended smokes

Cons: Need to be sure you light pellets well with a torch-not really a con

I was a 100% wood chunk guy, wrapped them in aluminum foil, produced great smokes, and have a huge variety of fruit and nut wood I get for free. I joined the forum and saw all these goodies I could make using cold smoke techniques. Well when the temperature was below freezing at light off time early in the morning and only rose to about 50 it was no problem keeping a low temp with a few coals and chunk. As spring temps got here it became harder and harder to do cold smoking and basically had to man the grill opening vents, doors and lid constantly, no fun. So from all I read, I decided to get the AMZNPS and it works great. I tried a few short cuts to light it off and had no problems with getting the dust going, but found I needed a butane torch to fire off the pellets correctly.

Very sturdy built stainless steel, but don't use over direct heat and make sure it gets good air flow. 

Great TBS smoke and though I have never tried another brand of pellets or dust, I have read Todd's (AMZNPS) are the best. They do have a great smokey smell and taste, true to the wood. I have used the smoker also in higher heat situations and it works well there too. I will still be using my well cured chunks when I can, but for low and slow or cold smoking it's the AMZNPS for me. I have never done an overnight smoke, but this allows me to do it and get some sleep (as long as the bears don't rip me off), it will burn up to 11 hours I have read.    


Pros: Once set up it works great

Cons: Can be a bit stubborn at times

Great piece of smoking gear for an electric smoker.  It produces TBS for hours if loaded or a few hours if filled to a lesser level.  It took a while to get the bugs worked out of my technique but once done it hasn't failed yet.  There is a nice smokey flavor to the foods and a multitude of available pellet flavors to choose from.  i highly recommend it.


Pros: Easy to light, easy to use, you can control how long smoking lasts, easily fits inside my MES 30, outstanding customer service.

Cons: Needs a propane torch to light.

When I first joined this forum, Todd's name and A-Maze-N and AMPNS all popped up in different threads. I had just bought my MES 30 and thought wood chips were the way to go. I asked some questions about Todd and the AMNPS and to a person everyone raved about him and his smoker and his dust and pellets and his customer service. They were right on all counts.


With the AMNPS, I just fill it with the amount of pellets I'm going to need, and then set the torch to it to light it up. 10 minutes later, it's ready to go into my MES. I shut the door and that's really about it till I'm done smoking several hours later. With wood chips, I'm loading them into the smoker about every 20 minutes it seems like.


But I think more than selling great products, Todd gives probably the best customer service I've ever experienced, and that doesn't just include handling questions about the AMNPS, but also questions regarding smoking food. He's the man of experience talking and I've learned so much from him. I just email him with a question and get a response usually the same day.


Todd has made my smoking experience more fun--and more tasty. Thank you, Todd, for everything.






I got my AMNPS in Jan. and it sat for a month or so in my Pantry shelf. Then the Wife and I went to Sam's to stock up our staples , and we saw they were giving out Cheese samples , so we ambled over , tried the Jarlsburg and liking Swiss as we do , bought a wedge.


I decided I would try the unit on the Cheese , with the Cherry Pellets and started preping everything that night. Next day I started the AMNPS , placed it in the bottom shelf warming cabinet of my Smoker and set the Cheese in on the top shelf.


I let the smoke carress that Yarlsberg for 8hrs. or so , removed it and wrapped for ageing, that lasted 1 week and we had to try it ... end of story , we kept pulling out a chunk every other day and ate it all before it had time to age ; it was too good to leave alone!


I have another chunk of Jarlsburg and some Co-Jack on the little Meco with the AMNPS smoking it's little Majic on it and intend to let it go another 8 to 10 hrs. (the smokier , the better for me ).


If Cheese is all I do with it , I am totally satisfied with the product , however , there are a whole bunch of things I want to try it on...  Oysters being one of them , fresh un-oiled Oysters , like I got in Wash. State while traveling down 101 to LA.


Would I recommend this unit to anyone else??? Yes, and with that I would commend Todd's customer service , outstanding!!!   This IS an amazing unit and sold by an amazing businessman.


I give it a 5 star rating..... Stan    aka    Oldschoolbbq  :)-


Pros: Takes the guess work out of smoking with wood

Cons: dunno

A-Maze-N Products. I cannot say enough about these products. They are engineered and researched extremely well. I have several and love them. I mainly use them in my MES30. It makes smoking a breeze!

It allows me to concentrate on the other mechanics of smoking meat!


Pros: no heat, perfect for cheese and bacon, no electricity needed, great selection of wood pellet flavors available

Cons: none

i've been fortunate enough to own and test all of the versions of smoke generators made by A-Maze-N Products and it is really neat to see just how they have all progressed into what they are today and i can hardly wait to see what the future brings to this innovative company. as for the AMNPS, i use it exclusively for bacon, sausage, chipotles and anything else that i want to cold smoke. i get long burn times with great smoke that is never bitter which is so important for long term cold smoking like bacon.
