I have used a technique that others have previously suggested on here. I light 2 briquettes in my weber until they are well lit and then use tongs to push them one at a time down the chip loader chute. I run my AMNS at the same time. Using 2 briquettes has worked well for me to get a smoke ring, and sometimes I'll add a third prelit briquette 45 minutes in. It's been a while since I have done it so I don't have any pictures (mainly using my MES for bacon right now).
