Thanks for the encouragement. I'm glad to hear that the smoke looks right. It'll be touch and go as to whether I can do a long over the summer with average temperatures here being 80 during the day. I will however be able to manage a fair amount of short smokes in the evenings and overnight. Will try out using my regular smoker with the AMNPS in the firebox for that.
Stoverr, The bacon looks great. I'm looking at three smoking opportunities here not counting the regular use of your stick burner. One, AMNPS in with your product, two,the AMNPS in your fire box and three, collecting the smoke from your stick burner.
I have found that the further the smoke travels the smoother the resulting smoke is, as the further it travels the more residue is left behind. Not that one is better than the other, it depends on your taste and the desired results. By placing the AMNPS in with your product, you will get a stronger smoke flavor which for many including myself at times, is very desirable. Don't worry about the color of the smoke, but do monitor it and learn how to use different colors and densities to your advantage.
The following links will show you the many different combinations I use depending on the product and desired results.
