    I read so many good things about the AMNPS that I am really intrigued and want one but I'm not sure if it will work for me. I read a lot about it being used in electric smokers but I haven't really seen anything about using it in a propane smoker. I have a GOSM propane and am wondering if it would work? Also where would I place it in the smoker? I don't do any cold smoking (yet) just mostly large cuts of meat and chicken so I want something that will put out smoke for a long time. If anyone uses the AMNPS in a propane smoke I would appreciate some tips before I buy one.

    I have used it in the GOSM and it works good. It took me a bit to figure out how it works. I have mine on the bottom just under the intake vent. If you dont have good air flow to fed it that is when you have a problem. But you can figure it out. I tried on the bottom rack but the moisture from the water pan hindered me. I haven't tried it with a empty pan yet. I am going to put sand in the pan and try that out.

    All in all a great unit.

    Your GOSM must be different than mine, the only intake vent is around the burner on the bottom

    I can't find a specific thread but I seem to remember guys either Drilling a couple 1" holes on the side where the AMNPS will be placed or drilling a small hole and feeding an air line from a cheapo fish tank air pump to feed oxygen to the unit...JJ
