What is a AMNPS? How do I look it up and where to I find info about it if I would like to get it in the future? My wife and I are not rolling in the money, and she nearly didn't want me to spend the little I did on this cooker, so for now I don't know if I dare ask to spend more on a AMNPS. If I don't right away go out and get this AMNPS am I still able to use my MES? If I am able to use it, then am I putting just a handful of chips in once an hour, once every half an hour? For three straight hours?
Again thanks for everyone's advise and sorry about asking about the AMNPS. I hope I have not upset anyone
No one here is ever upset about anyone asking for information, help, or advice. AMNPS=A-MAZE-N Pellet Smoker. Read about it and Todd Johnson's other products here: http://www.amazenproducts.com/
Todd's a member of SMF, a great guy, and is single-handedly responsible for enabling many of us to up our smoking game. I greatly prefer wood pellets to wood chips. A full AMNPS tray holds enough pellets to conceivably smoke for 12-16 hours without adding more wood pellets. It's set-it-and-forget-it stuff. Some guys have a problem lighting it and keeping it lit but there's a wealth of information how to use the AMNPS here and on You Tube. Todd's always available by PM or direct email and he always answers fairly quickly. He provides among the best customer service I've ever experienced.
Like Bearcarver, I wouldn't ever smoke without my AMNPS. As far as I'm concerned, wood chips are for throwing on top of charcoal for smoky flavoring in my Weber kettle grill.
