Ive had a mes30 for probably 20 years. Several years ago I got a mes cold smoker attachment because I couldn't get enough smoke out of the smokers own tray. I always loaded it full of wood chips, turned it on and left it on, I always liked the flavors I got. After researching here on the forums Ive learned doing it my old way produces to harsh of a white smoke. So to those who have had the cold smoker attachment, what is the best way to use it: (1)turn it on, let the wood chips get started, then turn it off and let them smolder? (2) use pellets in it? (3) can you use the anmps tube or 5x8 tray in it? I have both, never tried them. I don't think the tray would fit even if I turned the mes smoker sideways. but the tube would fit if left standing vertical. Can the tube be used vertical? (4) should I just abandon the mes attachment and use the mailbox mod? thanks for the help, I think we are all always trying to find ways to step our game up, Lots of great info in here.
