Masterbuilt smoker not producing smoke - Page 2

Instead of drilling holes I just bought the A-MAZ-N Pellet SMOKER. It produces the perfect amount of smoke and everything that comes out of my smoker now is excellent!

so the A-MAZ-N Pellet SMOKER just replaces the woodchip pan in this model?  Cause i did try using tin foil as a chip pan and it seemed to work...just had to turn the unit on medium then reduce it back to low once the smoke started coming out.  Everyone on here seems to recommend the A-MAZ-N Pellet SMOKER so i may just have to order 1...  just so im sure is this what you bought? :

I have the same exact smoker, and am also a newbie to smoking.  Only smoked a few things so far, and smoked at 220 each time and I've had  good smoke each time.  The picture you have of the dish looks like mine, however my chip tray has a lid on it.  I'm not sure if the lid on it makes the temp rise enough to cause the smoke, but It is on during the smoking.  My chip tray is not directly on the heating element either.  I do soak the chips for about a half hour and (following the manual) only put in a cup at a time.

Thanks guys for your chat,1st time smoking & I have this smoker, directions it came with were sparse. I'm smoking baby backs now they been on for 30 min. I'm going to take the lid off

the chip box, no smoke yet, I'll see if that works.

Here's what my AMNPS looks like in my MES 40 (Bottom left on the bars):

My AMNPS works well in my MES 30 Gen 1. In fact, just used it yesterday when I smoked 3 racks of St. Louis ribs. When I first got the AMNPS I used to tent it with foil. Then I realized that the water pan is so big it easily protects just about the entire tray. But remember that I have a 30-inch smoker, not the 40-inch.
