    I can't help you with too much smoke with that kind of smoker. Somebody else will be along.

    I only know the easy stuff, like getting perfect smoke from an AMNPS or AMNS when used inside an MES Watt Burner.

     You are doing fine so, let's not get discouraged.  While everything is fresh in your mind, make notes of everything you were doing.  Note wood being used and amounts, the color and density of the smoke, the time it was applied and results.  It definitely sounds that you are applying to much smoke.  Keep in mind the more dense and the whiter the smoke, the less forgiving it is.  Smoke does not need to be applied during the entire cook unless you are using a generator that doesn't produce much smoke at which point you may not apply enough.​  This is where you will be learning you particular smoker and its tendencies.  Once these are learned you will be on the road to good eating.

    Hang in there and have fun.
