Adding chips in mid cook

Anyone have a good method besides taking plate setter out? Someone handier than myself should design a slide/chute that would fit down between the open sides. I did notice while looking at charcoal that Saffire has a chip slot in their grill- nice idea..

    I have just dropped chips down between the platesetter and side before.  You might have to pick the grid up a little.
  • Sorry no good way other than pulling it out. My gasser is next to my egg so that was my landing zone when I used a plate setter and grid. Now I have an AR with oval stone and I can just drop chunks down the side without pulling anything.

    +1 on dropping chips between the PS and the firebox through the cooking grate.

    Haven't had to do this yet but one of the BGE chefs told me that you can create a pouch of chips in foil and slip between the setter that way they burn slower and you can add more at one time. Just make sure not to seal the foil packet completely. Like I said I haven't tried it but it may be worth a shot.
