First time posting here, found tons of great info over the last week. I seasoned the smoker yesterday, and smoked some baby back pork ribs today. They should be coming off in a half hour or so. I cant ever leave my equipment alone, always modding and trying to find out what works best. This smoker is no exception! I find the temp gauge to be much more accurate than many reported, my neighbor's Maverick showed within 5 degrees today at many different times. I don't know if I can bank on it, but so far so good. I did find that by removing the chip loader completely and installing a Vance and Hines baffle from my motorcycle that I was able to get much more consistent airflow and smoke from the AMNPS. In 3.5 hours I used 3/4 of one row of pit masters choice. I further tweaked it by adding a small fan that goes low as 1 cfm. Worked like a champ!!
