My MES Analog Smoker with the AMNPS.  A trip to Home Depot and a $.048 piece of step flashing took care of the potential dripping problem from the meat.

I wonder if that step flashing would fit between the rails and the first rack on a MES 40? I like that idea. Right now I just use a foil pan above the AMNPS, but that takes up rack space

My only question is. 

 

Is it galvanized?

 

If so is that a good thing?

 

Maybe at low heat it wouldn't matter.

Good question Al - that was in my mind too.

It's flashing, so I'm sure it's galvanized.  First thing I'll do is cook it at 500F on my gas grill for at least 30min.  I do have some large pieces of stainless steel that are the same thickness left over from my wooden boat build, but I'll use foil if I find out the galvanized is bad.  That polished ss is too expensive to cook.

I just did a quick google search and the first thing says not to use galvanized steel for food prep or storage.  The question was about a grill that had a galvanized burner which was deemed to not be food prep or contacting food.  So maybe the shield would be OK but I'll probably remove it anyway.  The link is below:

I can honestly say that I've never tired this!

Mixing sawdust and pellets does not work very good.

I bet you get some good smoke.....

I bought a brisket today...a 12 pounder!  It will be the first thing I've smoked since I got my AMNPS.  I'll get it all rubbed up tomorrow night and let it sit in the fridge until Sat morning and I'll get it on about 6am...I hope.

I'm using my AMNPS for the first time today.  I got a 12lb bisket on at 7am and at 4.5hrs in, this thing is still smoking like crazy.  I removed the water pan which sits in an opening on the bottom rack.  I placed it on a higher rack and placed the AMNPS below it to keep meat juice off.  I also found that adjusting the latch on the smoker so that it was a little looser allowed more air into the smoker and the AMNPS is doing great.

I'm keeping the temp in the 210-215 range for this smoke.  I plan on it being done in about 12hrs total.
