I have the AMNS on the way already. Should be here early next week. Till then I will make do with going outside every so often to add more chips.
That will not stop me from making a lot of goodies for the game tomorrow. I have 15 pounds of butt, the makings for a couple fatties, and will be picking up some ABT fixings today.
I did however, discover that I have a unit with a thermostat that does not like temps below 32 degrees. I had to pour some boiling water to the pan this morning in order to get the temp inside the box above freezing so the element would kick in. It is 9 degrees outside right now and the smoker is heating up nicely once the thermostat was happy. I was impressed yesterday with the ability of the thing to hold heat while seasoning it. Much better than my old smoker. I would never dare to use my old one in these temps.
This summer it will be all salmon all the time. My kids are already planning the annual fishing expedition. We bring home 40-60 salmon every year from the big trip and who knows how many from the other day jaunts to the local streams.
