Whoooooo Slow Down Cowboy!
Let's get to the root of the evil here!
My guess is your MES is the New Gen2....Correct?
Air flow thru the New Gen 2 is terrible, but let's try and improve on what you got
Pull off the mailbox mod and start over
Remove the water pan and place it on the floor
Place the AMNPS 5x8 on top the hole where the water pan used to sit
Exhaust WIDE open
Pull the chip loader out 2" and rotate to the "Dump" position....VERY IMPORTANT!!!!
You may need to add a 3" aluminum elbow to the exhaust for a chimney
Start off with the very basics, and make 1 change at a time
What pellets are you using in the AMNPS 5x8?
Cold smoking or hot smoking?
You can ALWAYS call me at work or on my cell
