Hello, I smoked a pork butt this past weekend. I love the Pellet Smoker, however I decided that I want to do the mailbox mod. I was wondering, Do I need to take out the chip loader and the tray? If I put in a 3in pipe, it only goes in a half inch. If someone had a photo of their 2.5 with the mailbox mod done to it. that would be wonderful!
