    Well, I fired up the ECB this weekend, but before I did I made a pan to hold the chips above the element. I have to say that it worked well.

    I started with an old baking sheet and a pair of tin snips. 10 mins later this is what I had. I cut some slots and bent them down to be used as feet. The tray rides about 1/4'' above the element.

    Most of the ashes stayed in the tray and it was easy enough to empty with a pair of pliers.

    I also devised a make shift smoker insulator. It was cold here, about 16 or so, but it was that wind that was killing me. It worked well.

    What cha think?

    Looks good.
    Also looks like you still need a picture mod. [​IMG]
