I already know how the MES 30 works with the water pan and the temps to expect. I'll compare those figures with what I find out during the experiment and post the results in my Water Pan thread.


Sounds like a Great test & should be interesting results!!

 

Gracias, Mi Amigo!!

Do what I did when I first started, try, try and try again.

All the info you need is written above and the only thing I do is, when lighting the pellets, is to light at least 2 inches of the start and not just the face.

Don't forget Try, Try and Try again, remember Sir Walter and the spider?.

With the gelled alcohol I just spread it about an inch over the top of the wood pellets and inside the lighting hole. It can be hard to see the flame in bright sunlight. I let it burn for 10-20 minutes depending on what else I'm doing at the time. I always blow on the pellets to get a nice cherry before inserting the AMNPS into my MES. With the alcohol there isn't just one cherry, there are separate hot spots that glow red but are more than sufficient to light the wood pellets. I blow on them a few times to reignite the flame and then blow out the flame just before putting the tray into the smoker with the lit end facing the rear wall.
