Placement of wood chunks in smoker box & use box lid or not?

  1. I have 2 door master forge propane smoker.

    Going to try to use chunks and use the smoker box that came with it

    Does it matter where to place the chunks in the box?

    When using the smoker box, with chunks, should I use the slotted lid it came with or leave it open to fit bigger chunks?

    Try 1 or 2 chunks without the lid off, and see if they flame up....

    I have the same unit as you and after two smokes in it I ditched the tray that came with it.  Way too small and has issues like lots of flare ups.  I then tried putting the chucks into foil balls.  Was ok not the greatest.  Next I went with a throw away foil pan from Wally, added chunks and chips, yes both, covered with heavy foil, poked holes in it. Worked better and flare ups but not as many.  Then I finally went with a 12" tube and pellets from A-mazen.  Works the best.

    I placed the tube to the left of the burner tray off to the side.  Works great.
