I've been having some trouble keeping my amnps lit in my homemade verticle gasser, so i decided to go with the mailbox mod.
I originallly tried to use some 3/4" black pipe I thought I had lying around. Turns out I only had a piece of 1/2" straight pipe to stick
into the smoke chamber. Well I gave it a try but it was not enough volume to create a good enough draw into the smoke chamber.
Well apparently I haven't downloaded the other pics yet ,so here is what i ended up doing. Went and found the 3" aluminum
changeable elbow vent pipes. Cut the top hole in the mailbox and a hole in the chamber and linked 3 of the vent pieces to hook the mailbox and the chamber together. finished everything with foil tape.
I drilled 2 1" holes in the front of the mailbox door for intakes and use a fridge magnet to adjust the intake air amount.
Here is my #1 smoking helper...All smiles as usual.
About 25 lbs of various cheeses...muenster,provolone, sharp cheddar,and american.
And here is #2  smoking helpers...They would be #1 & #2 but they dont have thumbs to help carry things!
Not to mention they are too busy licking the bottom of my smoker to help at all. But they are always around when I am smoking something.
Here is all the cheese after a 4 hour nap in the smoker...I like it smokey and to let it rest
for a while to soak deeper into the cheese. YES those are the Q mats from todd...They worked great!
Keeps the cheese clean and it doesnt stick at all. Amazing product!
Oh yeah forgot about a couple of blocks of cream cheese I tossed in for a friend.
Now for a long evening of vac pac-ing cheese....good thing i just recieved my order
of 200 pint sized bags from vacum sealers unlimited. Great lady that lisa!
Thanks for watching...
