Too much Chips!! Anything more than about 1/4C will generate explosive gasses. Pull the Chip Loader and you sent a rush of Air and BOOM!
While seasoning my MES, I added as much chips and the loader would hold. Twenty minutes later there was a loud bang. The loader was blown 3 feet into the yard and a foot of flame shot out the hole with additional puffs of flame every few seconds...JJ
