Trays last around 12 hours.

 

What smoker you want to use them in?

I think Todd says to use the tubes in gassers.

Will you use it only for cold smoking?, if so, I would used the tray and some of Todd's dust for it is a cooler smoker versus pellets.  Does your gasser have a single round burner?  Where in the gasser were you planning to place the smoker?  Mine is located under the burner for my cold smoke sessions.

Yes for cold only and it has a single round burner do u think the pellets would rise to smokers temp over 100° if so where can I get toddy dust?

In my MES 40, insulated, the Pellets raise the ambient temp 25-35°F over several hours. So cold smoking Cheese on a 70-75°F day can leave you with a nasty surprise. Todd sells the Dust as well...JJ

Thanks for the temp info I will leave the cheese smoking for the 10° to 20° winter days

I find that the AMNTS tubes produce way too much smoke for cold smoking in a small chamber and it is easy to over smoke. The AMNPS tray produces a much more controlled smoke and is what I use for every smoke. I have not used any of Todd's generators with dust but these would probably be even gentler and so worth a try.

When I do cold smoking in my masterbuilt gasser, with the AMMPS under the burner, The temp rarely rises more than 10* above ambient temp.  I have smoked cheese many times in 60* weather. Have also done butter in similar weather.  Rarely has the temp of the chamber gone above 75*.  The key is to separate the smoke generator from the finished product as much as you can.  I've also tried using my mailbod mod which really helps.

Well........for one who wears "no nonsense LISA" socks,,,,,,I sure hope for your sake that it does arrive in time   LOL   :banana_smiley:

 

But seriously, is there a box under your smoker that resides under the burner?   If so,  that is where my smoke generator resides.  Not inside the smoker.

Well that was my mother's sock she put the 30lbs of belly in the brine for me since I am in West Virginia and could not do it

I was just playin' with ya.    You should have very good results from using the tray.

Just got a 12" tube and used it to cold smoke cured bacon. It produced way too much smoke in my Weber Kettle; i.e. a small chamber. It also raised the temp 15-20 degrees on a 65 degree day. I am sure it will be great in a large chamber.

I have the 6",12",18" and the new expandable tube. I use them in my GOSM for both hot and cold smokes. Never found that I get too much smoke. I also use them in my mailbox mod for piping smoke into the other smokers I have. Works great.

I get too much smoke with the Tube in my MES 40 too.

 

So I use my AMNPS and AMNS for all my smokes.

 

I believe the Tube to be better for larger smokers and/or High Altitude smoking (where the AMNPS has problems).
