This one is the best one yet!

Start with these things. (Click to Zoom in to see price on label):

All rubbed & ready for night-night:

Fill (tightly) a little less than 1 1/2 rows of my AMNPS to the top:

This is the heaviest smoke you can get from an AMNPS, with only one end lit.

In my opinion, any more than this would be too much.

There are two ways of getting this much smoke.

One is filling it to the very top, as I did here, and lighting one end.

The other is to fill it "not as tightly", and not quite all the way to the top, and lighting both ends.

Here is a shot of the smoke inside. Todd calls this "BearSmoke".

Like I said, any more than this IMO, would be too much.

Some cleared away after I opened the door, but before I took the pic.

My exhaust vent is always wide open too.

Finished smoking. I just killed the power.

I called the amount of pellets needed pretty close---I figured I'd be close, but......................

Zoom in & see there are about only 3 or 4 pellets unburned.  LOL Shoulda played the lottery that day!!!

Ready for slicing:

First cuts:

Rib section removed for Chef---Later:
