Default My Mailbox Mod

My neighbor knocked down my mailbox. So I thought I would give the Mailbox mod a try for my UDS. This will allow me to Hot Smoke using the AMNPS.
First I drilled multiple wholes in the bottom of the mailbox to allow for ventilation. Next I cut a 4 inch hole in the mailbox by using a jig saw. Then inserted a transition piece. I repeated this on the smoker.


Next I attached a 2 foot drier ventilation tube to the mailbox:


Connected to the drum. Mailbox sitting on some old pavers:



Complete set up along with wind screen:




I have two briskets currently on and the AMNPS is working great.

I live just outside DC. Im sure homeland security will be here soon.



What am I doing... I bought a AMNPS to cold smoke with. I love it and wanted to use it as a smoke generator for my Hot smokes. By placing the AMNPS outside the smoker, it is away from the heat and has no problem supplying the smoke for the meats.

Here it is in action on a test run. Obviously, when cooking the mailbox will be closed and the lid on the UDS
