He guys, new to the forum and so far, looks like the best one around! I just upgraded from an electric Old Smokey to an MES30 and pretty excited to test drive it. From what I've read thus far, it's obvious that I'll need AMNx but the question I have is, it would appear the AMNS was designed for cold smoking and though it can handle hot smoking, the website refers to 180 degrees as the max temp while the AMNPS is good up to 275 degrees. The MES30 can go up to 275 degrees so does that mean the AMNPS is the logical choice? Wouldn't mind saving a few bucks if the AMNS will do the trick but don't want to push it. Thanks in advance!
