    We are going to have a little BBQ with some friends tomorrow so I decided to make a brisket. I also got a AMNPS a few weeks ago and have only used it for cold smoking. I figured id give it a whirl for hot smoking.

    Started with a 12.86lb brisket.




    Here it is after trimming and a little rub'n



    All tucked in and ready for a nice warm night



    Here is a close up of where I put the AMNPS. I have Oak and Hickory in there. So far its burning nicely. I made a heat shield out of heavy duty foil. I also put the pellets in the microwave for 90 seconds before putting in the AMNPS. Dont know if I needed to do that or not but I have always done it with the dust to ensure its dry so I just did it with the pellets too.

    Off to a good start. I still need to master the AMNPS on hot smokes. I think I needed to make a heat shield as well cuz mine was dying out on the hot smokes.

    I placed it where I did because its near a intake vent so this should help.
     
  5. Sure wish they sold briskets that looked like that here!  Looking forward to the updates and more Qview.

    Got it from Wally world. I was impressed with it. I held it up and it could bend into the shape of a U. The others there had so much fat that they didn't bend at all.


    Here it is at 7 this morning. About 10 hours into it.



    More to come. I also have 2 racks of ribs to throw on also.

    It all looks great and I bet very taste.. I have only used my AMNPS for hot smokes and it has preformed perfect in every way. It was a real rainy windy weekend here and I smoked a 15lb brisket with the pellets and no problems with the burn at all. I have never used a heat sheld. I did do a simple mod to my smoker with a small air pump into the bottom of the smoker to improve my air flow...
