    Tried the tin can/soldering iron cold smoking method.  It worked OK but I wanted something that smoked longer and was more versatile.  I ordered the AMNPS.  Received it on a Friday, a week ago..  The only problem I had was that I couldn't get the supplied propane torch to work.  Turned out it was defective so I bought a torch so I could use the smoker.  The AMNPS worked great once I was able to start it properly as I cold smoked eggs, two kinds of cheese and butter.  I called Todd on Monday and told him about the defective torch.  He immediately gave me three options:  refund, credit towards future purchases, or provide more pellets.  I opted for the pellets.  He immediately sent me two more bags, one Apple and one Perfect Mix.  You can't ask for better service than what he provided.  No wonder Todd has so many happy converts.  KUDOS TO TODD.    [​IMG]    [​IMG]

    You will love either the AMNS or the AMNPS - I would get the AMNPS because you can burn both dust and pellets

    Let us know how it works. I have a GOSM also and have been trying to find input on how to use it in it without much luck.
     
  13. Have you gone to the site and downloaded the instructions ?

    So far as I can tell you fill it and light it .. let it stay a fire for a while then blow it out making sure the smoke is going well ...

    Place it in the GOSM above the air intakes .. so the air can keep it smoking .. Make sure no drippings get on the wood chips you may need to tent with foil or put a drip pan under your meat but above the smoker ..

    Does your GOSM have the drawers ?

    No drawers, the only intake vent is around the burner so I cant put it there and anywhere else it will get dripped on. I posted a thread asking about this any it seems like no one uses it in a propane smoker. I would really like to have one but I don't think it's feasible in my smoker.
     
  15. It says on the website to put it above the intake and it should burn fine .. and also to tent foil over the A-Maze-N so the drips will not bother the flow of the smoke .. I will let you know when I get it ..
    But it should work just fine in yours ..
     
  16. Wait .. what are you using it for ? Because generally it seems its suppose to be for mostly cold smoking items .. For anything High Heat you need to keep it above and away from the flame " I BELIEVE thats what it said"  http://www.amazenproducts.com/Articles.asp?ID=238

    I wanted to use it for hot smokes, kinda hard to cold smoke in SE Ga.
     
  18. you could cold smoke in Ga .. just don't put the GOSM burner on ... you light the A-Maze with a torch and let it do the smoking for you without the extra heat ..
    I believe it says the Pellet one can go to 275 .. would have to double check on that tho

    I have a propane smoker and use it quite often.  I really do not use the Amazen for hot smoking much in the smoker.  For cold smoking just put it on a shelf in the smoker below everything and put it to one side.  It works well that way.  There are several ways to use it for hot smoking that can be found in the forum.  Search for the Amazen Smoker and you will find a ton of good info.  I also use it on my BBQ grill.  Just did a boneless leg of lamb using the rotisserie on the grill with the Amazen smoker to one side.  It came out fantastic!!  It is a very versatile product which is only limited by your imagination.  [​IMG]
