Having a hard time with chips smoking - Page 2

post #21 of 32
Thread Starter 

Thanks Todd, I am going to look that up. I went to grab the soldering iron before when you said that but it is at my workshop. I only have the soldering gun here. I will do an update in the morning. I know with your help tonite that I will make this happen. I told my wife its time for an a-maze-n. She says she created a monster getting this for me for fathers day.

Basically, you punch a hole in the side of the can, towards the bottom, stick the soldering iron into the whole, fill it about 1/3 of the way with chips or pellets and plug on the soldering iron.

 

Remember, the can gets hot, so watch out when you have to refill.

 

Practice before you do the real deal with your bacon

 

Also, there are some good posts on SMF showing the soldering iron cold smoker.

ok all this talk about smoke got me motivated to get online and purchase the A-MAZE-N-SMOKER, can't wait to get it and see what it can do.....

I noticed I had a "problem" with my Masterbuilt 40" not giving enough smoke at low temps (below 190). Part of my problem is it's insulated and at low temps the element doesn't stay on very much. Now, when I am doing BBQ or "hot smoking" around 200 degrees I don't notice a problem. 

 

I've resolved my issue by ordering a Smoke Pistol generator to supply the smoke when cool or cold smoking.

The A-MAZE-N-SMOKER is a great design. Ask anyone.

I did my 1st cheese smoke w/ a soldering iron / tin can smoke generator and a cardboard box.Worked great.

did my second w/ same tin can in my MES cabinet. Melted the cheese.

 Did my third w/ amns and a bowl of ice in my MES cabinet and still had issues w/ melting cheese.

 Guess it's just to hot down here to cold smoke in the summer time.

Be careful when using the "Smoke Pistol".

 

It seems to put out too heavy smoke. It could cause creosote on your meats, if you aren't real careful.

 

Maybe once you get used to it, you can control it, but I noticed even in their ad videos, it is smoking much too heavy (billowing white smoke).

 

The AMNS & AMNPS don't have that problem.

Thanks for the advise. If I don't like it I'll try out their 30 day return policy!

Great, Like I said, I can't say one way or the other, because I never actually used one, so trying out their 30 day policy is just right.

 

Maybe it will work good for you.

 

I started with another smoke generator, and it was terrible, but it wasn't a Smoke Pistol.

 

Good luck Chad!
