    hello my wife bought me masterbuilt propane smoker  for xmass. I used last weekend and the wood chips caught on fire every time i put new ones in. What I'm i doing wrong?

    I have the masterbuilt XL propane smoker and the chip box is slotted with 4 or so holes in it and it allows to much heat and the chips and even chunks will catch on fire. Search for Masterbuilt propane mods in the search bar and you will come across what quite a few people on this site have done to compensate. I simply placed a 9" cast iron skillet in on top of the factory chip box and place my chips in the skillet.
