My name is Scott. I live in Indianapolis, IN. I recently bought a MES40 and a AMNPS. I use the AMNPS for smoke generation instead of using wood chips. Seems much easier in my limited experience. I am new to smoking. This is my first smoker. I bought it because I wanted to smoke Salmon, but I now want to smoke all kinds of things and learn more about this art form of food preparation. This forum is such a great resource. You guys really make it easy to get started. Thank you!!
