    I had previously been having problems with keeping my amaze-n-pellet smoker lit and producing smoke for any decent length of time.  Today I microwaved the crap out of my pellets and that seems to be the key for me.  Look!  Smoke!  It has been over four hours and it's still going great.  My MES is completely unmodified, and the chip loader is in place.  My wife and I are looking forward to some brisket later today.

    steve, how long did you nuke the pellets?

    i've been using the oven. that's fine for winter but i don't like using the oven in summer.
  4. Yup! I always microwave and then I look at the clock and spend a full 15 min getting it going. When I try to short the time I usually end up having problems.

    Happy smoken.
