I removed the chip drawer and the chip loader from my gen 2 MES Now have no problems w/ AMNPS staying lit. I set it under the drip pan on the left side of the smoker.

Eman I was doing the same thing with my mes 40 (gen 2) and it was still hit or miss. I finally got it down to usually only going out durning the longer smokes, but it was still to inconsistent to trust so I did the mailbox mod and it had been 100% great!

I spoke to soon .I did a 13 hr brisket last night. Went out to put up my smoker and found that some drippings had gotten in my AMNPS and killed the smoke at a row and a half.  May have to look into the mail box mod but i will have to figure a way to make it removable for storage issues.

I used a mailbox, two chunky soup cans, 2 gear clamps, and a dryer hose. I pull it out when I'm done every time and put the mailbox mod on top of the mes for storage.

If you want pictures let me know. I'm smoking a fattie now but when I pull it apart in an hour it so I'll take some pics.

Does apple run into the same burn issues as cherry in the amnps?

post #28 of 32
Nope. Apple works great I use it all the time. I've only heard of any issues with cherry.

Awesome thanks, another random question will any pellet work with the amnps? My butcher shop also sells pellets.

post #30 of 32
I believe the answer to that is yes. I always order from todd cause I heard he uses no filler in his pellets.

I will def. support him when I have enough forethought to make sure I have pellets on hand. lol

It sucks to run out so now I keep a lot on hand. I just ordered 5 pounds apple, 5 hickory, 5 pitmasters, and 2 bourbon this week and I'm probably sitting on 3 each of hickory and apple and 5 peach right now.
