If you have the requirement to Cold Smoke your meats and you want the most smoke for a long period of time or you just want to boost the smoke in your grill or bbq then the Maze will provide this for you.
This Maze USES WOOD PELLETS AND WILL BURN FOR AROUND 10 HOURS (We used to carry the dust version of the Maze but found based on personal and customer use that it was unreliable and struggled to burn continuously and also due to it requiring a specific grade and size of dust it was not as user friendly as the pellet version).
NOT PAINTED SO NO UNECESSARY FUMES OR CONTAMINATED FOOD.
CONVENIENT SIZE AND SHAPE THAT YOU CAN USE ANYWHERE FROM A HOODED BBQ, TO A SMOKER OR WEBER.

Okay - works well once you work out a procedure that works for your Smoker. Bought this with a MES 30" Sportsman Elite. What I found works for me is to heat the pellets you will be using for about 1.30 - 2 minutes in the Microwave. Draws out any of the moisture they may have. Heat the Pellets for about a minute till they are Cherry Red ( Butane Torch works great - Jet Flame lighter not so good). Let them burn for a couple of minutes with a flame - You should be able to blow the flames out and then blow again and have them restart. (Cold Smoking) In your MES 30" pull out the Water Drip Pan,the Side Wood Chip Loader and the wood chip internal tray about 1 - 2" inches. Make sure the top vent is fully open. I generally place my A-Maze-N just above the Water Drip Pan cutout. This will give you good airflow. On average with just 1 row loaded with wood pellets, I get 4 - 4.5 hours smoke time consistently. Obviously depending on your smoker model and type location and results will vary. This works for me and the model I have. Have tried with Cheeses, Nuts & Garlic. Smoke quality and duration is very good.

There are no shortcuts to this, unfortunately. You really do have to spend the time to work out the little tricks yourself, to make it work in your smoker box/kettle. Once you do, it works very well, producing consistent smoke for over 12 hours. The design is good, however the metal isn't very durable. I wonder how long they'll last, as the corners with the lighting hole are already bent out and split after two uses! Quality needs to be improved I think.
I recommend using the pellets from Smoked and Cured, they're excellent, and about 3 times bigger than the mass market ones you get from hardware stores.

I'm only a novice, but the A MAZE N PELLET Smoke Generator was so easy to use. I cold smoked a pork belly and loin that I had dry cured with apple pellets. The generator put out smoke for at least 8 hours inside a Hark smoke chamber. The result was fantastic, such a great product that is simple, cheap and extremely functional for producing cold smoke.

This simple product lives up to your expectations. I love hot smoking, but cheese doesn't. So, I thought I would try this out and smoke a small block of cheese for two and a half hours. Wow, just wow. Such a nice flavour, nice colour and a really nice smoke hit. Now, on to the next cold smoke thing

Amazen is an understatement.Awesome is probably closer to it's claim to being a cold smoker.
I've tried various ways in the past to cold smoke and this has to be the least expensive and simplest device that gives that true cold smoke flavour.
I tried cold smoking Tasmanian Salmon which I lightly cured for 24 hours, then straight into the smoker.
Once lit, the maze worked for 8 hours before burning out using Apple Pellets, not quite the 11 hours quoted, but 8 was more than enough.
The result was mouth watering that had friends fighting for more.
***Note from Misty Gully, thanks for your feedback Mike, just a quick note on potential reasons for the time differences experienced. It does depend on how full and tightly packed the rows are and also the amount of air flow, the more airflow the faster it will smoulder.

First attempt at cold smoking. This prod makes the job so easy. Simple to follow instructions for first time use. Figures for smoking times are very accurate..produces great smoke.
