Does the AMNPS make temperatures in electric smokers go up ? Lit my new AMNPS with oak on one end and hickory on the other end and after drying sausage at 130 degrees for two hours raised the temp to 140 and put the AMNPS in the smoker. Got lots of smoke but temp rose to almost 160 degrees. No fluctuating between 144 and 160 degrees. Is this normal ?

My 2cents worth.
I too have the AMPS pellet smoke from Tod Johnson, shortly after I recieved it, I loaded it up with apple pellets and put it in my Brinkman round upright smoker, I did not light the burner.
The ambient temp outside was 66 degrees, The pellet smoker raised the inside temp to 113 degrees. Please remember this is not an electric, it is a gas burner fired smoker.
I'm just saying that the Amps does add a small amount of heat.
