I have an MES 30 with the AMNPS tray. I have never used dust for smoking but the past week I have been making dust from some of my pellet supply using the water method. When do some of you choose to use the dust over the pellets? And what is the reasoning.
I live in N.E. Ohio.
I have the 8 X 5-1/2" tray and after two and a half hours I checked the ribs and the pellets must have gone out soon after I put the tray in. I do cover the tray with a foil pan to prevent grease from dripping on the pellets. The thin blue smoke was there but it must of been burn off or...
Since you bought the AMNPS, I wouldn't even use the chip tray. I didnt with mine. No oil either. Before you use if for a real smoke cover the bottom drip tray and heater cover with foil. makes for easy clean up!
