I just got my AMPS, so I wanted to try it out. I really need it for long smokes like brisket but wanted to try something relatively short first. So I decided on CSR using a 2-2-1 method. I was having problems throughout the smoke keeping the pellets in the AMPS going. I tried pulling both the chip tray and loader out with no luck. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I was so hungry I forgot to take a pic right out of the smoker. Here is what was left after we were done eating. Once again, any thought on the AMPS would be appreciated.
