Just like GOVT, solutions to problems that don't exist.I Modified my smoker so I could light the material from the bottom using a small blow torch. Drill a 10 mm hole just above the fire grate. Make a small metal flap to cover hole using a beer can. (drink beer first) and fix with a self tapping screw. Lighting is very easy and cool smoke as it is filtered through the material especially if small amout of green grass is placed to top. Easy to relight one handed if it goes out. Priceless!
