    Has anyone used charcoal in MeS along with running the electric coil?

    I have broken up a briquette with a hammer, and added it to my handful of chips about an hour into a smoke. I like the flavor profile that charcoal adds to a smoke. Be aware that it did tend to spike my temp in my mes30 for a little while. It also plumed the smoke for a bit as well, before the return of tbs. My meat did not suffer any ill effect though. I just received an amnps pellet smoker for dads day, and am kicking myself for not getting some charcoal pellets with it! Next order i intend to try them.
  3. The AMNPS is the way to go.

    Happy smoken.

    If you are eating the food right after smoking, you have become "desensitized" to the smoke flavor....   takes a day or 2 to get back to normal.....    When I smoke bacon, it doesn't have much smoke....  A month later, when it hits the frying pan,  holey kow !!!  the house smells like so much smoke it's amazing.....    Just a thought...  Dave
  7. I have to agree with Dave. Remember you can light both ends of a AMNPS. Or Both ends and the middle. Or 2 AMNPS. I am thinking you would have way to much smoke. But it could be done. If that is not enough. Use the chip loader at the same time.

    Happy smoken.

    Great points made by Dave & Mule !!!

    And like Mule said, "you can light both ends of an AMNPS", but if you have to, it is because the one end isn't lit properly.

    I consider myself a Smoke Hound, and one end lit is even enough for me.
