I have a MES 30 and an AMNPS. I love them both, but in a strong breeze and 40* outside temp I am not able to keep the apple pellets I got today going. they smolder for a bit and go out. I have now had the torch on them three times in two and a half hours.
I probably should have dried the pellets in the oven first. I took them right from the bag to the AMNPS.
I am attempting some Superbowl cheese. I have sharp white cheddar, pepper jack, munster, gouda, havarti and a dry salami in there.
I was planning 3 hours, but I don't think I'll make that. Probably going to be more like 4-5 and that makes for a late night.
I tried adding some regular apple chips and it seems a bit better. I guess next time I will have to try some saw dust.
I'll post some Q-view in a separate thread in the cheese section after I pull the cheese.
