Fill your AMNPS up to the brim, but do not overfill
Light thru the starter hole for approx. 45 seconds, with a torch
A flame will appear on top the pellets
Allow the flame to burn for about 5 minutes and blow out before placing inside your smoker
Start your AMNPS a good 30-40 minutes before you put your meat in. This gives you the AMNPS a chance to get going. I start My AMNPS and then go prep my food. By the time my food is ready to smoke, the AMNPS is rollin' in smoke
Here's a link I started, in hopes guys would find it if they had issues. Guys have been adding to it and I've learned a few tips and tricks from them!
Also, you should try a trial run before your real smoke. This gives you an idea of how it works.
Pull the chip pan out 1 1/2" - Adds a little more air flow inside the MES
Do not remove the chip loader, but you can pull it out 1/4 way and play with the intake
Place on the rails, to the left of the chip pan housing
If it's not burning correctly, place it on the lowest rack
Don't use water in the water pan - The inside of your smoker will turn into a SAUNA!
