I have a large Napoleon Prestige Pro for my gasser, but had used a Masterbuilt 40" Gen 2 for the past few years.  I've never had consistent smoke out of the Masterbuilt even with AMNPS.  I replaced it with a RecTec Mini...

SMOKE problems solved and temperature, as measured by an iGrill2, was absolutely perfect.  AMAZING ribs and brisket.

I've used it for 3 weeks now. Rock solid never varies more than 2 degrees up or down, even over 19 hour smokes. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
