I ran over my amnps

Discussion in 'Slicers, Grinders, Tools, Equipment' started by moose350, Nov 10, 2014.

  1. I think this probably only happens to me, My smoker is toward the back of my property by what my wife calls my man cave, I call it a shed. (It seems to make her feel better about kicking me out of the house) Anyway, I was smoking a turkey the other night and I pulled the amnps out of the smoker and threw it on the ground next to it, The next day I pulled my truck back there to unload some things and I apparently ran over it, I think I can just straighten it out and still use it,If anybody has done this or something like it let me know if it will not work, before I waste my time.

    Sorry I am at work and I did not take pictures

    Hmmmm.... not sure if Todd's warranty covers 1 ton trucks! [​IMG]

    Bummer to hear that, hopefully it can be saved.
     
  3. If you can straighten it out I'm sure it'll work fine. I've used the same piece of mesh for a charcoal basket, charcoal divider and pellet smoker, all in the same weekend. I just kept bending it into the shape I needed, as we were at the cabin and I didn't want to drive all the way to town to buy more.

    Don't the AMP's come with a lifetime warranty?

    Or was that an Oklahoma garantee? I forget.

    Just to add fuel to the fire.......

    If you're willing to post the flattened AMNPS 5x8 and prove that it truly was squashed by YOU and NOT your wife, I'll gladly send you a new unit.

    BTW...How'd your smoke turn out?

    Todd

    p.s. The Warranty DOES NOT cover damage caused by one's own reckless driving!

    Wait, even if the wife is chasing you? That should be an act of God clause or something.

    Hmmmm???

    Act of God

    Let me think about that for awhile.....

    I give Moose props because he did not blame it on his wife and/or kids

    Admitting publicly that he was the culprit surely impressed me

    I'm thinking it must have been on a hard type surface, because the way those things are built, if it was laying on the ground, it would have just been driven into the ground without any damage!!

    Able to saw thru large trees? I keep one in the Zombie Go-Bag ready for emergency use.

    Had we had them sooner, we'd have come in first place in the World's 1st South East Asian War Games! AND it cures Acme!

  12. Now that's what I call customer service!!
     
  13. Todd,

       Thanks for the offer, but I do not need you to do that I can straighten it out. In fact even after it was run over by 3/4 ton diesel truck which is a heavy pickup it only bent the side down where I ran onto it, once I was all the way on it it supported the truck. The bottom part is still perfect. I just felt like whining this morning. Besides if I get my wife to testify about who ran over it she will probably tell some more stories about my other screw ups, I will save myself further embarrassment.

    BTW the Turkey was excellent I brined it overnight in Pop's brine with some poultry seasoning added

    That's why I keep my stuff in the garage, there's no room for cars!
     
  16. Sounds like something I would do?

    I agree with Todd to take a close look at your tire?  [​IMG]

    The way he builds his stuff?  I see some Vicegrips and hammers in your future.

    I am sure that dang thing will work fine.

    Good luck and good smoking.
