    here is the situation. I have started using chunks instead of chips in my Masterbuilt XL. I have a cast iron skillet over the burner. I have been placing the chunks directly on the skillet. a few hours later when I open the door, some ashes fly out and around.

    what do I do to eliminate that? place the chunks in foil? pretend I didn't see it? go back to chips?

    Open the door slower? Or maybe get some fireplace screen and make a little screen lid for your pan?
