The A-Maze-N-Pellet TUBE SMOKER (AMNPTS) Reviews


Great for cold smoking


Pros: Long burning and consistent

I purchased this to use when I smoke bacon. I put in inside the cooking chamber on my offset smoker. Provides a good consistent smoke. Great service and a good price.

12" tube: This thing works (for 3+ hours). Consistant level of smoke, easy to fill, solid, easy to get started and stays lit


Pros: Heavy duty, easy to fill, I can fill to what ever level of time i need and when filled full it lasts over 3 hours

Cons: None so far, ok, it's round (dur) so it rolls but a little tin foil stops that

Any pellet smoker will need a fairly constant stream of air. Place over the bottom intake. If using a temp. controlled fan like PartyQ you will need to still have some vent opened a bit.   This makes amazing cold smoked salmon.

Thank you

Just got my A-Maze-N Pellet Tube Smoker for my 2 month old pellet grill today.  BANG!!!  This things works as advertised.  I had tried a different brand and it would not stay lit, at all, for more than 10 mins.  i decided to give this one a whirl and WOW!!  I did as instructed and it is smoking away, in my pellet grill, with little to no air flow from outside.  I cannot wait to taste the extra smoke when finished!! Thank you!!

Great for cold smoking cheese. NO complaints at all. Also great for augmenting smoke in my MF gasser


Pros: Creates lots of smoke for its size, Easy to start, Good 4 hr burn with the 12 inch model

Cons: Challenging to refill on the fly if you need additional smoke after 4 hrs.

I've used my Amazen Pellet Tube Smoker for about a year and a half now.  I've smoked a ton of various cheeses with it by simply placing the tube in the lower half of my Master Forge gasser or by setting it on one side of Weber Genesis.  Just place blocks of your favorite cheese on a pan (perforated is best) and let the smoke do its thing. I generally let the cheese marinate in a zip lock for about ten days after smoking it for the best flavor.  So far our favorites are Pepper Jack and Gouda but everything has turned out great.   I also use the tube smoker when doing something in my grill like a beer can chicken.  The added smoke really adds to the...

Perfect for Cold Smoking


Pros: Durable, Simple, Reliable, Low Temp Smoke Generation

Cons: NONE!!!

I bought my AMPTS a year ago. As with everyone on this forum I do a lot of hot smoking. But, my favorite is cold smoking. IMHO, I make the best cold smoked salmon (lox) outside of NYC. I use two of the 12" tubes for my 5 Ft offset reverse flow smoker. The tubes never increase the temp in the chamber from the air temp outside. I have never used it to augment the smoke when I burning sticks, no need to. I only use it for cold smoking. Once you get the hang of lighting the tube and be patient about letting the pellets do an initial burn, the rest is a lazy man's art.    Here is the the thin blue smoke billowing out of the stack:   Here is the tube (which I now use two)...

A-Maze-N-Pellet tube Smoker


Pros: Good smoke producer

Cons: Get the right size

I used the AMNTS 18' version for the first time this weekend and it was a success.  The tube burned evenly with good clean smoke.  I have the 18" version and it's a bit long.  Next time I would opt for the 12" size.  In order to lessen the capacity I used a crumpled up piece of tin foil to reduce the volume.  That worked well and gave me the time I needed without wasting extra pellets.  The tube sits at the right front corner of my GMG DB where it gets plenty of air flow from the circulating fans.  Another great product from A-Maze-N Products.



Pros: easy to use

Cons: I guess I'll have to order pellets from now on...

  My brother bought me the 12" AMNPTS for Christmas and it's been blow'in smoke in my Weber kettle ever since. The 12" size is a good fit for the the 22.5" Weber. I've only tried Pitmaster's Choice and Oak pellets, but both tasted (and smelled) premium. Those pellets may look like hamster food, but once you add fire you can tell from the aroma that you're on the right track.    Here's the AMZNPTS cold-smoking a baby loaf of Tillamook cheddar!  

Works Great!


Pros: Easy to Use

Cons: None

This 12" tube smoker works great in my Master Forge Double Door smoker.  Continuous smoke once started correctly for at least 3-4 hours which beats having to go to the fire box and replace every 30 minutes-1 hour.   Highly recommend!

Another Great Product from Todd


Pros: works as advertised

Cons: none

Have always had trouble getting good smoke from the Traeger Texas Elite.  Tried to use the dust smokers but the turbulence from the muffin fan just kept putting them out.  And when I could keep them going the smoke output just didn't make it.  First time out with Amazin Tube Pellet Smoker with BBQ Delight pellets and had two racks of St. Louis style and a 8.5 lb brisket flat and couldn't be happier.  Generous amount of smoke and kept going for the entire cook.  Pellet smokers are notorious for giving out less smoke as the temps are increased and I like to smoke brisket at around 260 so this was just what I needed.   Another winner from Todd Johnson!

AMNP Tube Smoker Review


Pros: Easy to use instructions, hours of quality smoke, no creosote, performed as advertised, 5-Star Service

Cons: None if you Follow Directions!

I recently was able to throw this Tube Smoker into use.  Originally designed for a different type of smoker than my usage, but proving (as did his other types of products) to have been engineered in such a way as to bridge the gap into many uses.  Todd creates a quality product, gives by far the best customer service I have seen in any product line, and is a great supporter of this forum.     I had issues keeping the prior versions of this smoker (in rectangular design) lit while using the only smoker I have - a 22 1/2" Weber Kettle charcoal grill.  I Received my package from Todd at A-Maze-n-Products and could hardly wait to get started with it....
