Tried the Chicken I made with the AMNPS today and it was good but I wish it had more smoke flavor. I noticed during the cook the smoke didnt get real steady until the second hour. Am I doing it wrong or is that normal?
If it is normal this brings me back to questioning this vs the chip loader for short cooks like 2-3 hours.
I am cooking a brisket in two weeks and really want to master the AMNPS so I can set it and walk away.
1. Do pecan pellets do well in the AMNPS?
2. Enough smoke for a 10.50 pound brisket?
3. Should I start a new thread about my brisket? I have some timing questions as this is for a family event and I want a home run brisket this time!!
Everything Todd already told you, plus a little from the Bear:"
If you aren't already using Hickory, and you want more smoke flavor, try Hickory. Todd will tell you----Hickory is the only thing I use.
Also---My AMNPS gradually smokes heavier through the smoke. If yours starts out too light, light it an hour or more before you start smoking your meat.
Todd covered everything else I can think of.
