I've seen and read about other mods but not about what I did. 1. Throw away the original pan unless you might want to use charcoal at some point. 2. Get an 8-inch cast iron skillet (mine was in a kitchen cabinet, long unused.) 3. Get a Lodge cast iron trivet, drill and tap for 1/4-20 threads, cut three 2-inch sections from a threaded rod, add nuts so the legs can be tightened. 4. Put it all together and you have an adjustable stand for your wood pan. Price: Under $12 since I already had the skillet. Advantage of this design: The distance from the flame to the bottom of the skillet can be adjusted until the heat/smoke ratio is set to whatever is desired.
