I lit both ends and my mailbox was pillowing... no fires. But it almost seemed like the coals were being choked... So i scrapped that and started over because i want TBS. Seems ok now, i only lit one end this time in the mailbox.Looks good
Possible to overfill AMNPS?

IF you fill it to the top there is a CHANCE that it can jump rows,,, next row can get hot enough to ignite.
I fill mine just a little more than Wills but not to the top
A full smoker is a happy smoker

Hi, you will develop your own style so to speak. I fill mine leaving near a 1/4 inch at the top. If I am mixing pellets like cherry on top of hickory I only put the cherry on the top. I also only put a thin amount in the center of the row.
If I have a short smoke like for a Tenderloin that takes about 1.5 hours I will load a quarter row on both ends. The cook time is short so I want a lot of smoke .Maybe not right but that is my way.
That is the thing about smoking you can do it your way. Jted
