Hello, new to this forum I've owned a couple of the masterbuilt 30's and decided to upgade to the 40 with remote and meat probe. I seasoned it today and gonna try some butts Sat. I like the unit except for the Barbi doll chip tray. Gotta be a better setup. I thought of taking all the existing chip system out and just putting a 12 inch cast iron pan right on the burner or ???? I'd like to add chips once to smoke up to 4 hours, admittedly a little lazy when it comes to adding chips. I only wanna use chips if that helps. Thanks alot for any help and direction.
