    Get it burning good before putting it in the smoker.

    You want a nice red cherry going.
  3. Connie,

    I used mine for the 1st time last weekend and this was exactly my process:

    I torch it for 40 seconds through the hole on the side. This will create a flame that will burn. Leave it alone in the wind and come back in 3 minutes to blow on the pellets to get the small flame going again. Repeat this step once more. After torching, blowing until small flame twice, and then waiting 3 more minutes, put it in the smoker. I use an MES30 Gen 1 so I had the flame side of the AMNPS facing towards the back of the unit with the chip tray pulled out a couple inches and the chip loader pulled out a couple inches. 1 row burned for 3 hrs. It was beautiful..
