Hey starman, welcome to smf. I don't use the chip tray for wood. I put foil over it and the water pan, with little holes , to catch the drippings. I use a small foil loaf pan for the chunks of wood and some lump charcoal and set it right on the element. Havn't had any problems with the door. Been used allot for overflow and smaller smokes.
