    Am I missing something

    If you have Amazon prime, you can get some pellets there. I had to in order to capitalize on having them prior to the holidays along with my AMNPS. While I agree with everything that has been said above me, I would also like to add my recent experience. On the 20th or 21st I ordered an AMNPS...

    Ztek, how'd the pork turn out? I'm doing my first smoke in the next few days. 6.6lb bone-in Boston. Just got done rubbing it actually. What kind of ball park time should I expect?

    Help! Ready to buy MESS, but can't make heads or tails!

    Hey there all. Had surgery to repair a hernia yesterday so I'm gonna be laid up with weight restrictions for a bit. Needless to say it's gonna be some time I can use to work on more meat products. I've narrowed things down to an MES 40" to what I think works for my budget as well as...
