Hello Guys, I'm a newbie to the smoker world. Just bought the masterbuilt XL 44" smoker with dual burners. I have a couple questions.


Is a cast iron pan better for wood chip then the small tin pan it comes with. I smoked hamburgers and just did not seem like there was a lot of smoke in them.


When smoking, should smoke be rolling out of the exhaust vent in the back or will you not see it. I can smell the hickory chips but did not see smoke coming out the exhaust vent.


Is there any mods I can to do to make it a better smoker. I seen some people where removing the v shaped plate above the burners.


Anything will help, I'm going to smoke some chicken legs today and try it.


Thanks You,
