Theres a maze smoking unit you can put in the smoker. I have not gone that route yet, though I plan to. It will be the mailbox version, be on the outside of the smoker. What I do not know is does this unit upset the thermocouple of the smoker? IS this why they burn out on the MAsterbuilts? Also, by disconnecting the original smoke box, how does the heating element turn off and on? I see it working real hard without ever stabilizing, and thus will burn out? People say theres no issues but I have my engineering hat on too much.
I am going to get all the parts for the add on smoker and install - keeping all the pieces to put back once something goes awry. I love this smoker and don't want to ruin it
An AMNPS will make your smoking so easy and much better quality, you won't believe it.
It will not effect the thermocouple one bit.
You won't be disconnecting your built in chip burner-----You will just stop feeding it. The heating element will keep working exactly like it has been.
You will never want to return to using the MES chip burner. I haven't used mine in 6 years.
And the heat loss through the glass is not noticeable. I would never get another smoker without the window in the door. It has spoiled me.
