These smokers typically do not have sufficient airflow to keep an AMNPS going. I cannot speak for the SI but there are postings about drilling an extra hole or two through the bottom of a SmokinTex. SI and ST are similar in function and construction. Here are a couple of links. Just be aware of warranty issues.
You wont need ANYTHING additional. I have the #2 and use about 2 oz of wood per smoke....and that's when I do a BUTT. You may need 3 or 4 oz with the #3 depending on how much food you have in the box.
DONT MOD this smoker......it was built correctly so there is no need.
If he indeed wants to "Cold Smoke" they sell the cold smoker attachment for the Smokin-It units. Still no need to mod the unit.
As most folks know, I have a CS, my brother has the SI3. The amount of wood to use depends upon the amount of smoke flavor you want in your product. Chamber size as well at the food load will have an effect. I use 2 to 3 ounces for my smokes as does my brother. Neither of us like a heavy smoke. Both smokers have roughly the same capacity. I have gone 4 ounces on occasion. I went 12 oz early on and produced a creosote coated butt, not knowing the actual weight of the wood chunks but thinking they were no more than about 2 oz each when they were actually 4. Shredded and mixed, it was not edible. So I use an Oxo good grips scale and weigh and split to the desired weight. It works well for me.
