I agree 100%. I use the AMNPS in my MES 30, usually filled with dust or dust and pellets. I rarely use pellets alone. But depending on what I am smoking and which wood I want to use, I may just go for the chips in the tray. Last Saturday I smoked a corned beef brisket into a (delicious) pastrami, and I used the dust/pellet mixture. However, the following day I smoked three trays of boneless chicken pieces for only a few hours, and was happy using the chip tray. Also since I have various woods in various forms, I may just choose based on what I have available. Deciding on the fly is half the fun of it all...a little experience and a little experimentation...
Exactly---I love my Amazing toys more than anyone can imagine!!!!
However, once in awhile I'll run out of smoke from the one I'm using, and I think, "I could use another half hour or an hour of smoke", so instead of pulling it out, letting it cool, and loading some more pellets in, I'll just throw a few chips in the dumper---dump them in the pan & keep smoking for that short remaining time.
