AMNPS in an offset

    I know lots of folks use the AMNPS in an offset for cold smoking. But what about hot smoking?

    I have a Chargriller COS and am wondering if it is possible to burn briquettes or lump in the SFB and run the AMNPS tube or tray in the cook chamber with the meat? Will there be enough airflow to keep it lit? Are there any other concerns or things I should be aware of?

    I honestly don't mind the babysitting of the fire too much in my offset, most of the time. But if I have other food to prepare inside, it isn't always convenient to step away from that to tend the fire.

    Why not.I can't see any reason why the tube wouldn't burn,its kinda what its meant for.

    I would think a few chunks of wood mixed into the charcoal would be cheaper then running pellets.

    I haven't looked into what is more cost effective. Right now, I'm more interested in what will give me longer burn time. Chunks seem to burn too fast. I was thinking about trying out the Minion Method and using the AMNPS for smoke on my next long cook.
