These pans fit the slots on my elite perfectly. Oh I give them a light shot of cooking spray then rub it so the pan is coated (both sides) that way it washes up clean in 10 seconds with a little dawn and water.
I found that I was bumping the temp up to 240 after 4 hours as I like crunchy almonds too. Next batch I will try keeping it at 235 the whole way.
Your putting your baking sheets in the slots, the grates that come with the elite above the slots and then putting your pans on them is this right, I am guessing?
I have been trying to figure out how to get 4 pans in so I can smoke more at a time.
Just saw this at wall mart in W Sac today at lunch.
Hefty EZ Foil Grill Pan Size: 17" x 12-1/4" x 1-1/8"
This is a disposable foil pan (baking sheet size) with lots of holes in it 2 pack for $3.
It might just fit the slots without support too.
When I get home I will see.
