Hey everyone, just got the 30" smoke hollow smoker from gander mountain. Everything seemed in order but upon seasoning it I noticed it just tears through woodchips. The chip tray seems to have a really hot spot right in the middle that kills the chips and creates white smoke. This all occurs on the lowest temp as well(worse on high obviously). I was hoping ot use it for the first time this weekend but I don't want to ruin my food/have to replace woodchips every 15 minutes. Anyone have any advice on a quick fix? I have tried wrapping the chips in foil and poking some holes in the top but all this did was slow the process slightly. I guess I could just put all the chips to the cooler side but I'm afraid eventually they too will meet the same fate. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
