Amazen Question

Discussion in 'Electric Smokers' started by jaybird1, Dec 10, 2011.

  1. Being a newby to smoking with a new MES 30 and soon to buy an Amazen product want to know if you can also burn the small chips my grocery carries.

    The A-MAZE-N-SMOKER(AMNS is designed to burn sawdust

    The A-MAZE-N-PELLET-SMOKER(AMNPS) is designed to burn Pellets or Sawdust

    Chips won't work

    No need to burn questionable stuff?  The AMAZN stuff is so good and so reasonably priced?

    Good luck and good smoking.
     
  6. Just checking ,they were so handy being right down the street did not mean to offend anyone.
     
  7. No offending perceived at all - questions are meant to be asked and answered here!  It's all about gaining the right tools to perfect YOUR smoking.

    Not offending any whatsoever!!!

    It's a reasonable question and one that may help someone else

    Honestly, I've never been successful burning chips, but that does not mean they won't burn.

    Chips that come from a retailer, typically are about 20% moisture. 

    In-order for anything to burn in the AMNS or AMNPS, it has to be around 8% moisture.

    Pellets are usually cheaper than chips.
