Does anyone see a problem with putting a lit briquet in the chip tray to assure the wood chips smoke? I suspect I could also add a briquet through the side loader too, with chips, everytime I load chips. Happy to have someone point out the flaw in my plan.

yeah, you can put a briquette in the chip tray. It will leave a smoke ring on the meat but it won't really change the flavor. My MES smoked fine so it didn't really change how much smoke came from the chips. I used to start with 3 briquettes in the chip tray then add one every 1.5 hours to get a smoke ring.
