Another AMNPS-MES Question - Page 13

post #241 of 252

Actually I threw that valve away, for this application I hooked the tubing into the fitting since the air flow is so light. If you want more air you can upgrade the pump but I would not get too wild with the air pressure. Here's a pic of my AMAZEN.

If you want to use the flat AMN I suppose you could put foil over it an leave the far end open.

A 1/4" nipple long enough to go thru the wall of the MES, some tubing for the pump with a pushon fitting that will fit the tubing and 1/4" nipple. 


That is a really cool idea! Thanks

I'm blessed with a damp basement (being I am almost totally surrounded by water and the almost part is my laneway)  so I have a dehumidifier going 24-7  in there . My wood pellets and wood bits sit in the room where I keep the dehumidifier going, I don't have a problem with either going out in my mes 30

My AMNPS arrives today! but I anticipate a problem. Back when I grilled I timed my cooking with drinking a beer. If this thing is really as self tending as you say it is and I believe you, I may have to give up drinking while cooking. This was usually the only time I drink.

Everybody has their priorities Bilgeslime. Mine is I don't grill or smoke without a cold one or my fav mixed drink, now things get pretty wild around here when I'm doing one of those 12 to 14 hour Brisket cooks. I know, I know it aint right but somebodies got to do it an I'm always the lucky I mean the one whats gotta do it round here. If you get my drift. Now in your case you've still got to keep the smoke rolling therefore your still good to go with the koolaid. 

 

                                                                                      Happy Smoking

                                                                                      no pun tended

You can still drink a beer while using the AMNPS. Just take very small sips or get yourself one of these self-refilling beer glasses and don't plan on leaving your chair till the smokin's done.cheers.gif

My solution to keeping the amnps lit was accidentally discovered.
I began smoking with a home made smoke generator which meant I had had a venturi pump and a 3/4'' pipe into my smoker.
So when I got my amnps I had some wood that was laying there that was the exact width of the pellet tray. So I made a temporary wood 'garage' and slid the tray in, taped it up and lit the smoker.

So the venturi pump creates the draft over the pellet bed, and pumps the smoke in as well. Perhaps the tight fit of the tray in the garage is helping increase the draft. It does work. I am going to remake it in steel asap

Has anybody tried the amazen pellet tube and what do you think of it...also would you recommend the 6" or 12"?

I have found placing the pellets in the smoker "unlit" while the smoker comes up to temp helps prepare the pellets for lighting. As a matter of fact the TBS will begin to occur before they are lit!!!!

Well, I'm a little prejudice, but I think it works GREAT!

 

The only diff between the 6" and 12" Tube is the duration of burn.  The 6" smokes for 2 hours and the 12" smokes for 4 hours
The MAZE burns up to 12 hours, and was designed for use in my own MES 40 over 4 years ago.  Produces plenty of smoke for a MES, but of you think you need more smoke, light both ends

Todd, Does all your smoker tubes or the a-maze-n take pellets? I wanted one for using wood chips or chunks.

My gadgets were designed to use sawdust or pellets

That said, some customers do use chips with success
