How does everyone place foil on the bottom of the 4D without tearing the foil with the smoker box.  The foil tears every time with the smoker box dragging on the bottom of the smoker.

I have room in my #3 to lift the box as I'm sliding it forward, no torn foil.

I do the same thing as Dave in my 3DW. Lift the wood box, slide it back and sit it down gently.
