I've seen and read about other mods but not about what I did.
1. Throw away the original pan unless you might want to use charcoal at some point.
2. Get an 8-inch cast iron skillet (mine was in a kitchen cabinet, long unused.)
3. Get a Lodge cast iron trivet, drill and tap for 1/4-20 threads, cut three 2-inch sections from a threaded rod, add nuts so the legs can be tightened.
4. Put it all together and you have an adjustable stand for your wood pan.
Price: Under $12 since I already had the skillet.
Advantage of this design: The distance from the flame to the bottom of the skillet can be adjusted until the heat/smoke ratio is set to whatever is desired.
