I tried the AMNPS in my MES 30 today with no heat. I had one row of the AMNPS filled, got it properly lit and put it in the smoker. The temperature in the smoker rose from 75 to around 165.
Do I had too much air flow? The chip pan was pulled out 1 - 2" and the chip loader was also pulled out the same. Also, the vent on the top was open all the way.
I am wondering how I will be able to cold smoke in the MES with that much temp gain or if I will have to cold smoke on the grill.
