congratulations on your 20 yrs and retirement, I didn't retire from the USAF but I did server from Sept. 69 to Sept. 73.  I would love to get into wood working again but need another person to help.

Been using a Masterbuilt electric smoker (MES) 40" for a couple of years now. I also added the AMNPS and use pellets instead of the chips. Works great for me. You can search on here for the AMNPS and Masterbuilt. I was just commenting to a friend yesterday about how impressed I was with my Masterbuilt and the AMNPS. Mine has given pretty consistent results.

The AMNPS doesn't physically replace the chip tray.
On my MES40 there's two thin rods that run the width, at about the same level
as the chip tray. I place the AMNPS on those rods on the left side, which would be
the opposite side from the chip tray. I also pull out the chip tray an inch or so and pull out the loader for air intake.

Im from Northern California. I retired from construction after over 35 years. Im a a master cabinetmaker and woodworker and worked for about 15 years in high end construction in the San Francisco Bay Area. Built and remodeled for some of Americas wealthiest. I live in Rio De Janeiro Brazil now with my wife and 2 1/2 yo daughter. We own an English language/ Info Tech school here. I miss home tho. Learning to be a great cook and to smoke meat since these people dont know how to cook shit here. Churrasco (Brazilian BBQ) is highly overrated and all they know about seasoning is "MORE SALT MORE SALT MORE SALT. Opening a fish taco place here soon and gonna work on doing some pastrami.
