Chip tray or smoke generator

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi folks. I'm thinking about doing a build very similar to a fridge build. Four racks, vertical, smoking at 225 deg. F.

 

For the heat, I'm going to buy a 220V 2100 watt element from Allied Kenco. And I'll also buy their prewired thermostat.

 

My question is... with the heating element turning on and off, will it keep good TBS if I'm using a chip tray? Or would I get a better control of my smoke if I buy something like the smoke daddy?

I'm wanting to build one myself,

Not sure about the Smoke daddy but I've seen the AMNPS used with good results.

 

Some one with more knowledge on the subject will be along soon.

Now you can use the amps thing but you still have to have a good heat source and a double burner hot plate will work fine. You just have to make sure that you can reach atleast 250ish* or so and keep it too.

I like those maze smokers. No moving partsicon14.gif

 

I'm still planning my build, but I like the idea of a sealed smoker, like a Cookshack. Keep the moisture, heat and smoke inside.

You have to have some air flow for the AMNPS to work.

I've got over 50 guys with smoker builds using my Pellet Burner

I suggest you make a drawer for the AMNPS, so you can access from the outside.

This way, you don't have to open the door to check on it

 

Al is right, you need a draft for the AMNPS to work properly

Thanks, Todd. I'm still in the planning stages, but I like your product. 

 

My first smoker I built without planning so good. It doesen't work as well as I'd hoped.

 

I might be buying my heating element and thermostat from a discount appliance parts store. I figure I could save a few hundred $$ that way.
