As an experiment I just put the damper on the outside of the smoker, it will cover the holes completely.

 

I'll have to find a piece of angle iron like you used to protect the pellet smoker tube from the heat, it caught fire during my smoke!

I closed off the vent where the tube is, and the small amount of smoke coming out has not been a problem as the AMPS has more than enough smoke for the cook. :)

My pellet smoker tube caught fire again even with a protective barrier

i just acquired this smoker last weekend and thought it worked great right out of the box. seeing as i am new to the whole smoking thing i guess that's not saying much. after reading this i am sure my wife will be hollering tomorrow night about what i bought at lowes this time.

I did not even try mine out of the box. After reading about the mods I decided just to get it done.

I have had a few issues with my smoke tube in my GOSM. Cooking at 225F I can put the tube in the water pan and it seems to work well. I get about 3 hours out of it. However, I was doing six butts a few days ago and had a problem. I first three hours with the tube went fine. I wanted to go with a little more smoke so I reloaded the tube. For some reason, it would not stay smoking. I must not have lit it properly.

 

I had different problem when I wanted to cook at 275F, the tube would not stay lit at all. I drilled six 9/16 holes, in two 3 hole rows, in the side of the box, above the vent and installed a mount for the tube between the holes. It operates ok, probably too well, as I get only about 2 hours from the tube in this setup. If you try this, start with smaller diameter holes. You can always make them larger.
