Well, I can't seem to keep my AMNPS lit in my propane smoker, I think there's not enough air intake in the unit due to my altitude (almost 7k ft). So off to modify my old Brinkmann Gourmet Charcoal Smoker to see if I can make it work.
It may just become a dedicated cold smoker, if my wife doesn't make me get rid of it, after all, it was free, so what the hell.
Taking my queues from the infamous FrankenBrinkmann, I started with making an exhaust damper for the lid:
Followed by making 3 intake dampers for the bottom:
Marked and drilled the bottom:
Then cut out the dampers, and mounted using double nutted screws:
I sealed the center hole, I just didn't take a picture of it.
Next, I wanted to get my AMNPS up off the floor of the charcoal pan, so I mounted 4 stainless steel bolts, then bent some steel rails I had laying around the garage to make the "platform" for the AMNPS:
This puts the AMNPS about 2 inches above the floor of the pan, hopefully with all the new air intakes the AMNPS will stay lit.
Just got the AMNPS going and set inside for a test run, we'll see how it goes.
Updates to follow..
