MES 30 + A-Maze-N-Smoker

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

I ordered the amazing smoker device the other day and I cant wait to get my hands on it!..

 

Where is the best location inside the MES 30 to place the a-maze-n-smoker ?

On the bottom left away from the heating element.

Yes--On the bottom floor.

 

Since you have an MES 30, due to height restrictions, you will probably have to remove your bottom drip pan, and replace it with foil or a foil pan, so your AMNS will fit under the bars. Not a big deal.

 

If you don't like doing that, you could put the bottom rack in, and put your AMNS on that, all the way to the left, but then I wouldn't put any water in the pan.

I have the MES30 analog model and I put my AMNS on top of the water dish in a small aluminum pan.

I have a question, been trying to find the answer. When using the ampns in the mes 30, do you leave the wood chip tray in or take it out?

I never remove anything from the Heating element up, except I only put the racks I'm using in. That includes all the Chip burner parts & the Water Pan.

@BearcarverThank you , I have been looking all over this form to try to find out if you leave it in or not. Got to try out the ampns tomorrow on a few racks of ribs.

Assuming you got the AMNPS 5x8 which is made for the MES30, the smoker goes on the two rails just to the left of the heating unit. It is made to fit like a glove and you get good ventilation from below with the tray suspended on the rails. I leave my chip loader tray open about 2" to allow air flow to keep the AMNPS to burn consistently.

That's True, Milkman---For those who have an MES 30 Gen #1, and an AMNPS.

 

However so nobody gets confused about the first 8 posts on this Thread, that was before there was an AMNPS.

 

Back then we were talking about the AMNS (Dust Burner), and it was 6" X 6", and did not fit on the two rails. We used to remove the bottom Drip pan, and set the AMNS on the floor on the left side.

All true, I am just assuming it's an MES30 Gen 1 based on the first post. They still sell the 6x6 for other purposes.

Here is the 5x8 for the MES30 -

Exactly.

 

Actually my old MES 30 was one of the ones responsible. LOL

 

Todd Emailed me when he was designing the AMNPS, and asked me to measure the width between the left wall & the Chip Burner Assembly. I think I told him 5 9/16".

He checked with a number of MES 30 owners, to make sure he made it to fit any that may be a little undersized on space there.
