    Pull it. That should be plenty of smoke.

    If you have dust left, use a spoon or a stick to scrape the burning part away from the remaining good dust and re-bag it.

    Ok I pulled it.  Smells smoky.  Wrapped in plastic and in the fridge.

    Cool, make a mental note of how much burned for how long. Now that you know how the AMNS burns, you can estimate how much sawdust you'll need for future smoke and how much a full tay of dusk will go.

    Try spritzing your pellets on the end you are going to light with alcohol (isoproply or denatured). Then, use your propane torch to light up that end until you get a good flame. Let it burn 5-10 minutes then blow out the flame. This is the advice that Todd gave me when I first got my AMNPS and had trouble getting it to light and continue to burn in my MES 40 (the older model). I also put an elbow on the outlet to control wind passing over it and I removed the trip tray doohickey entirely.

    Nope it is a great product. I might use it to smoke everything, just use the mes for the heat.

    I have the dust model.  With the help of the forum and Todd I got it figured out.

    Now don't touch it for a MINIMUM of 2-3 weeks, month or longer is the best way to go. Do yourself a favor and in about 2 weeks smoke some more, get your rotation going because you are going to love it.

    That is going to be hard to do.

    If you don't let it rest for the 2 weeks minimum (longer is better)... You might think it's no good because of the bad taste... The rest let's it mellow out...

    You will be disappointed if you don't wait, it will taste bitter and overpowering if you get into it too soon. This is the hardest part about cheese, but you will be rewarded for waiting.

    Good luck......

    If you plan on "Hot " smoking you may want to get one of Todds Pellet smokers. It was found that the dust smokers burn up the dust in a hurry when hot smoking, thus prompting Todd to develop the pellet smoker for Hot smokes. One thing about Todd.......When he finds there's a problem.........He FIXES It!!!!!
