So ordered this from my nearly empty piggy bank account the other day and just got home to it. $14.99 Canadian !!! Hopefully it works reasonably. Will test run it with pellets tomorrow and make some Dave’s Dust for a comparable test.

Good luck, had a cheap bigger around tube that I gave my son, use a oval tube now with great results, they are $20 at walmart most of the time

I don't see why it would not work. Good Luck!

Canadian Walmart’s don’t have anything that cool, if I like the results I will pony out the additional cash and get myself an amaze-n tube or pan

Well you might not like it then not buy the amaze-n tube. The square bottom might not let the air flow right for it to burn right. I have many amazn tubes and trays. Love them all.

My grill (Louisiana grill 900) seems to always have a decent amount of cross flow but I can try and modify something to add in some air maybe a ram on one of the output vents facing down to the smoke tube, and seal all but one of the other vents

As long as it has airflow under it. Not sitting on a solid surface.

Using a pellet tube, oval, square, or my 6 sided knockoff unit in a pellet pooper will have more than enough air to keep it smoking.
Pellet Grills have a fan pushing a lot of air through the cook chamber.
I mash my pellets so they are less than 1/2" long to give a nice density or the pooper will go through a load in 3-4 hours.
Give that a try before you make dust. Not sure the size of your square. My 6 sided is about 1-1/2" across.

My knockoff smokes just fine in the kettle unless I'm trying to throttle down the charcoal, then it will go out.

It will work just as well as the name brand as long as you set it up on the slant. Prop one end up a few inches higher than the other and it will work fine. However, you need to do it whether it's a clamp or as simple as a wood chunk or rock. If it goes out it's most likely moisture in your pellets nuke them for a minutes or two before you use them.
