    An AMNPS burns pellets or sawdust. I use only pellets in mine, because I also have an AMNS that burns sawdust perfectly. Some people can get the smoke they want from their MES, however it is humanly impossible to get up to 11 hours of perfect, constant, consistent smoke from an MES. An AMNPS can do that. With an MES you'll get at best a cycling of Too much smoke, Good smoke, and Not enough smoke. It's not a fault with MES, it's just the nature of the beast. No electric smoker can produce continuous smoke as perfectly as the AMNPS, without touching it once lit properly.

    So pulled my loin out of the freezer and into the fridge. It has, what seems to me, as a pretty big fat cap on it. Should that be trimmed? Thanks and can post pic of it if needed.

    Thank You Roller!!!

    I don't remove it, but many people do. If there is much of a fat cap, I would cut a diamond grid pattern into the meat, before the rub. Then if I didn't want to eat it, I'd cut it off at the table. But that's Me.

    This is a complete newbie question, but what do you tie the meat with?

    Thanks... having a hard time finding it. Will it be OK if I don't use it? I have it rolled pretty tight. If it is needed, can I use skewers instead?

    You are trying to hold it together so the filling doesn't fall out. Tying is better but you can probably do something with skewers.

    Go to Ace Hardware and tell 'em you want a spool or roll of cotton twine/string.

    You're already getting good answers, but yes, butcher twine. I didn't have any either, so I told Mrs Bear to pick some up at the grocery store. They didn't have any, so she asked one of the meat cutters there. The guy gave her a handful of it, and it was just enough for my two rolls.

    I guess you could hold it together other ways, but I would check butcher shops, grocery stores, or kitchen supply places.

    Our kitchen supply place sells it for 2 pounds @ about $9.
