Anyone have a diy way of reducing size of, or grinding smoking chips so that they will burn in an AMNPS? I just bought one and have a bunch of chips left from my old setup. It would be nice to be able to use them.
I'm not using them in conjunction with any grill. This is for cold smoke. I'd like them to support their own combustion like the pellets. I may try it and see how it does. Pre-dry them crispy like in the toaster oven like some do the pellets.
Hmmm... it looks like it may work. I put them in the toaster oven at 180 for 15 minutes, packed them fairly tightly and started them about 5 minutes ago. Looks good so far. Next time I'll hold it against my vibrating brass tumbler to settle the chips tighter. This is in the open out on the deck with plenty of air. It may act differently inside the smoker with limited fresh air available.
what is the saying about the mother of invention? You may be on to something....
Me neither... but I don't watch TV, so it was an experiment. I was on the verge of blisters by the time I got half a quart bag done. Those cable cutters aren't the most ergonomic in the world. Need some compound action cutters with softer grips.
