Trying to smoke my first Canadian bacon....initially bought the A-maze-n for dust....could not keep it lit...even "nuked" the dust for 40
secs as recommended....built a tool box
attachment with lots of holes....still not able to keep lit......added a small fan to blow into the holes....still not lit
So I went and built a "mail box"
Switched to the pellet A-MAZE-N I bought this week hoping to generate smoke.....
Followed the direction for lighting (45 sec of flame-10 minutes of burn- blow out and insert------son of a gun went out in less than an hour, (Frustrating)
Maybe I'm confused about the amount of smoke that it should be producing.....I barely get a wisp
Guys...Why is this so hard for me???? Got a Master's Degree in Systems Engineer, spent 23 years operating Nuclear submarines and I can't even get a simple smoke to work. But I'm not giving up!! (as long as you are willing to give advice
P>S> Pop's brine on the pork loin worked well...did a fry taste last night and it was GOOD....I will post some pictures of the finished product when and if it gets done..,
