So tonight i bought a 12*12 ceramic tile, foiled it, and stuck it on top of the chip loader area. I noticed smoke was now coming out the back seam slowly and i don't remember that area being so hot on my first smoke. I also noticed a slightly odd smell and a small bulge on the back area of the smoker. I have been smoking for about a hour so i pulled out the ceramic tile and am now worried i hosed my new smoker. Please help me rest my nerves as i am panicked! I am within 2 weeks of ownership should i try and swap it out at sams?
