Can my A-MAZE-N SMOKER be used at temps higher than typical Cold Smoking temps?

  • Yes! Your AMNS will work at smoker temps up to 180, but at higher temps you may need to make some adjustments to your AMNS and it's placement in your smoker. Keep the AMNS away from the heating element or flame, and out of the direct draft. Your AMNS will burn more quickly at higher smoker temps and may jump rows. See below for more information on how to avoid jumping rows.

Why does my sawdust not light or stay burning when it’s placed inside the smoker?

  • Sawdust may be damp. Place 2-3 cups of sawdust in microwave for 60 seconds and stir to remove excess moisture. Repeat process and pour into AMNS.
  • Not enough air/oxygen inside smoker, open intake and exhaust vents.
  • AMNS is below intake vent, place on higher rack above intake.
  • AMNS above the water pan. Moisture from evaporating water in the water pan will affect the burning process. Move the AMNS below the water pan or place a smaller pan of water on one of the shelves.
  • Juice or oils from the food are dripping on the AMNS. Place a foil "Pup Tent" over the AMNS to deflect the dripping juice or oils.

What causes the A-MAZE-N-SMOKER to burn quickly or jump rows?

  • Sawdust filled over top of dividers. Fill sawdust to level just below the top of the dividers.
  • AMNS too close to heating element or flame or too cost to draft. Move AMNS or place in pan to deflect heat/draft around the unit. Keep middle row empty at temps above 180°
  • Smoker temperature set too high. Reduce smoker temperature.
  • Too much intake air. Close intake vent slightly to slow burning.

I own a Masterbuilt 30” or 40” Smoker and my AMNS starts and burns good outside my smoker, but slows or goes out when I place it inside my smoker?

  • The AMNS is starved for air/oxygen and Masterbuilt Electric Smokers do not provide much air/oxygen intake. Remove the chip loader and pull out the chip drawer approx. 1 1/2". This will increase the air/oxygen intake for the smoker and create a slight draft.
  • AMNS is below the intake level. Place AMNS above the level of the intake.
I own a Bradley Smoker and my AMNS starts and burns good outside my smoker, but slows or goes out when I place it inside my smoker?
  • The AMNS is starved for air/oxygen. Place AMNS above the level of the intake and possibly remove the external smoke generator if more air/oxygen is necessary.This will increase the air/oxygen intake for the smoker and create a slight draft.
