    I have the Masterbuilt Analog 30 electric smoker and it doesn't turn the chips to ash just burns them. They look like charcoal at end of smoking session. I've seen several people to modifications to their smoker but I can't afford to do any of that and don't want to drill holes. Can I take the lid off the wood chip tray and it help? Any suggestions? 
  2. If it is making smoke just go with that it is doing. I know you said you couldn't afford it. But when you can look at a AMNPS. You will love it.

    Happy smoken.

    You can! The lid simply keeps food drippings from dousing your chips. I would suggest putting a disposable drip pan on the bottom shelf over your chip pan. Lack of venting on that model smoker will keep your chips turning black, you can help a little by loosening the latch on the door to allow more air in. Air will seep in at the bottom and smoke will escape from the top. Sawdust will smoke better then chips.
