AMNS arrived today and I just HAD to smoke something... too close to dinner for anything long term, so I fired up the AMNS with a short load of hickory and threw a 1 1/2 in thick sirloin on for 1.25 hours at 225. Finished of on 500 degree infrared for about a minute and a half on each side... In 1.5 hr I got more smoke flavor than I have been able to get out of the MES in every previous attempt. Absolutely amazed by the amount of great smoky flavor from less than 2 inches of burn on the AMNS.
(Not a great picture, but I read somewhere here that if you ain't got a picture...it did not happen! So I shot this with my iphone while fixing my plate!)
