Halve your tomatoes, put the larger pan on the grill set to high, drain the chips and toss them in, put the tomatoes in the slotted pan and set them on (almost like a double broiler), cover and weigh down. Let smoke for a good 30-40 min; it's a slow smoke.
Works really well with corn, Vidalia onions and other veg. Makes for a fantastic soup!
for small smoking jobs i just use my wok.
you can build a rack with cheap chopsticks, or bamboo skewers, to place the food on. then just make a smoking packet with foil and place in center of wok.
