    What the skinny on the A-MAZE-N Tube Smoker?

    I believe some on here have the tube smoker. Using this on a pellet grill how much of a smoke difference taste do you get? Guess what I'm trying to ask is does it make a big difference in the smoke flavor of the meat. Or does in work better in cold smoking?
    Thanks for any info.

    Ive done thousands of ABT's and figured these would be a good way to test the smoke tube. I used to do them in my Bradley electric smoker and I got a strong smoke taste using that. The MAK puts out a less condensed smoke for a milder smoke profile. The smoke tube gave me a heavier smoke taste for sure. I only filled it a quarter of the way full for an hour of extra smoke and It did not dissapoint! If you want more smoke flavor out of your pellet pooper buy one of these from BigPoppa.

    Mine works great, used it this weekend on ribs and chicken then smoked some salmon. All of it turned out better than expected.

    Ditto.

    Mine (a surprise gift from Sparky - Thx pal!), added a whole new layer of smoke flavor to some chicken & ribs I had on the MAK. Well worth it! MrsSTC said it was the most flavorful chicken yet.

    I recently cured & smoked 5 pounds of homemade Kielbasa and started with a cold-smoke using the A-Maze-N Tube smoker. Later I switched to a hot-smoke by firing up the grill to smoke mode.

    It had as much smoke as any smoked sausage I've done the old-school way. The taste and color were both incredible incredible.


    The Tube Smoker and pellet grill make a great team.
