Went shopping for a new smoker today.    Found this at Walmarts....

 

 

Serial Number  20071910....looks to be a Gen 1 :)

The maze goes on the two rails to the left of the wood chip holder like this:

 

I have the MES 20070910 30-Inch without the window and really like it. The AMNPS is all I use for the smoke source.

Thanks daRicksta.   The AMPS sits perfect in that spot.  Smoking a stuffed loin and the smoke has been going perfect.

You're welcome, Townes. To me, the real fun with the AMNPS is in using the different wood pellet varieties. Some guys stick with hickory but I'm into creating flavor profiles. I found out a few weeks ago that oak wood pellets create a perfect marriage with beef brisket. I buy all my wood pellets from Todd Johnson. They're 100% wood.

I decided to build a stand for the smoker. I wanted to keep the budget under $45 including cover.  Using items around the house I was able to keep it at $42. 

 

I won't call it pretty but it works well. 

 

All the wood (except the box top) was from broken pallets.

The box top is from scrap plywood I had in the garage.

The spar varnish was left over from general boat maintenance.

 

Purchased

Cover - $20 Lowes

Caster wheels - 2 swivel and 2 stationary $8 Harbor Freight

Door hardware - $5 Lowes

Steel Metal - $9 Lowes

 

 

 

 

 

   thanks for looking
