Hey All, Brand new to the smoking game and I've got a couple of questions I'm struggling to find some clear answers on. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I apologize for asking any common questions. I've given the forums a good scour I promise! If there is a spot I can get this info please feel free to point me in the right direction! 1) Which Smoker: I'm Canadian and on a budget and need my smoker fast so it seems that some of my MES options are limited due to shipping/costs/timing. Here's the only two I can get quickly and in my price range: http://www.lowes.ca/smokers/masterbuilt-800-watt-electric-vertical-smoker_g1790980.html http://www.homedepot.ca/product/electric-analog-smoker/825659 They are both GEN2 which isn't ideal but it's my only real option given some of my restrictions. Safe to assume it's best to go with the the Digital one from Lowes? 2) AMNPS I'm going to order the AMNPS 5x8 from Amazen products as well as some dust for cold smoking and pellet for higher temps. I'm just struggling to understand how it works with the MES. Where do the majority of you place it? I hear lots of talk about removing parts etc and I'm not sure I'm up for that. Should it work properly with the model above? Do you place it in the same spot for hot and cold smoking? 3) Pellets In the event I cant get my AMPNS to work properly due to air flow issues with the model of MES I'm buying can I use Amazen pellets in the regular chip tray? THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP IN ADVANCE!!
