So i have the 30inch electric smoke hollow. I have to fill the chip pan pretty often so i'm wanting to build a bigger one,obviously so i don't have to keep refilling so often. As of now i take a torch to light the chips first then put in the smoker. My thinking is to light a section of the chips in the pan in the hopes that they will slowly get the others going over time so that i dont have a huge amount of smoke at once. Kinda sounds like the amns obviously but for chips. Would something like that even work or should i just break down and buy the amns? Or would building a bigger pan to fit chunks instead of chips be worth trying? Just trying to keep from opening the door as much as possible.
