Bear gave me the dimensions of his MES 30, and while designing my new gadget, I made it fit on the rails of the MES 30.
The new design for the dividers keep the rows from jumping at temps up to 275°, as Bear stated.
Pellets produce more smoke than sawdust and are not as combustible during hot smoking.
The new A-MAZE-N-PELLET-SMOKER(AMNPS) holds 6 oz. of sawdust or 1# of pellets.
You'll have plenty of smoke if you light (1) row for your pork buts this weekend. Light the row closest to the inside wall. You may have to make a heat shield out of foil and place it between the AMNPS and the chip pan housing. Also, water in the water pan causes too much humidity inside your smoker, and the AMNPS won't work properly. If you think you need extra moisture, inject your butts. Install the water pan and place your pork butts on the racks so the juice does not drip on the AMNPS.
