Mail Box Modification is the best...  allows for cold smoking also......

I don't have a 40, but I have a 30. I just tent foil over it. Works good.

The mailbox mod is a great idea, I just never did it yet.

Thanks guys. At this time I'm not ready to do the mailbox method yet. Maybe down the line for now Im thinking either foil tent or bending up a piece of sheet metal roof for over it.  Still trying to figure out my cart i'm going to build for it to move it around since I have a extremely bad back and cant be lifting or bending over much.

If you use the search function (magnifying glass on upper right) you can find plenty of cart ideas, probably some ideas to protect your tray too. Here are some links I found with a quick look with search words "MES cart":

This is true. Sadly my backs shot so now more crazy hobbies. Relax and grill / smoke / bbq is my lifestyle :-)

I might be a tad late to this party but when I was using my amazn in the smoker I took a cooking tin and cut it in half and just turned it upside down over the basket, worked perfect every time.  I reused that tin also without even washing it.

 

 

I will say the Mailbox mod has been a BIG step up from just putting the amazen inside.
