My wife is asking for things to get me for Christmas, relatively inexpensive, so a new smoker isn't a good answer . . . for now . So the first thing that came to mind was an AMNTS for my 24" smoke vault. I've been on a mission lately to find a way to get continuous TBS and avoid the "campfire" smell (as opposed to a nice flavor wood smell) I often get. The smell isn't terrible, but I feel like no matter what type of wood I use, the smoke flavor pretty much tastes the same. The food always turns out pretty good, I just like to constantly tweak things trying to make the food as good as I can. I've tried wet chips, dry chips, and chunks all in various quantities and temperatures with out a ton of luck. Now back to the point. . . I think I want to give the AMNTS a try. I've read a lot about the trays and most people do the mailbox mod, but is it necessary for the tube as well? Do you think it will be a step forward in my mission above?
