    Just ordered the 6x8 AMNS and 5 extra lbs of dust. This might not be the correct spot on the forum to post it but i am so happy i had to post about it somewhere. Cant wait for it to show up.

    Gonna be using it with my MES 40.Looking forward to making my first real cold smoked belly bacon. I will be posting Qviews when i'm done.[​IMG]

    I just got mine in the mail recently and plan to break it in this weekend.
  4. I have a Smoke Daddy but ordered one of these, showed up yesterday.  Although I have not used it yet I plan to use both, the Smoke Daddy for quick heavy smoke and the AMNS for longer smokes.

    the AMNS is awesome, i've used mine every time i've smoked something since i got it.  anywhere from 140 degrees up to 250 degrees...make sure you make a foil tent and put over it so the grease droppings don't "burn" it faster than normal

    I got my AMNS in a few days after i ordered it. Very fast shipping. I opened the box soon as i got it. First thing i noticed was that i was missing one of my 1lb bags of dust. I sent Todd a email and told him about it. With in 5 minutes of me sending the email he had sent a return email with no questions asked.Todd apologized for the mistake and told me the missing bag was in the mail. I had my hands on it with in two days. IMO that's as good of customer service as you can ask for.

    I actually used the AMNS this weekend to smoke a Boston Butt. Worked great!! I will be recommending the AMNS from now one.[​IMG]

    I just ordered an MES.  Do you have a good picture (or can you point me to one) of where people please the AMS in the MES?  I got the new 40" version.

    This is a picture of one of mine in my old MES 30, but that is where I like to put any of my AMNS in my MES 40.

    A regular AMNS doesn't fit like that in an MES 30, but there is a lot more room in your MES 40.

    Put it all the way to the left, as far from the heating element as you can.

    Thanks!  I can't wait for mine to come.  I'm already planning all of the food I want to smoke.  I already have 2 smokers but I feel like I'm buying my first!!
