As of November 2009, Behmor roasters now ship with a "low profile" chaff tray. The re-designed chaff tray improves visibility, so you can see into the roaster much more easily.
In our experience using both chaff trays, there is a definite trade off with using the new low profile tray. Yes, visibility is enhanced, and that is good, but it is harder to maneuver in and out of the roaster, harder to clean, and with rivets and springs added to it, there is more to break. It seems to catch more chaff, but it is not safer in our experience. You can still have a chaff fire with the new tray; we did.
You definitely want to read the PDF that Joe Behm has written about the new chaff tray - as it is trickier to insert and remove from the roaster. Remember to remove the protective film covering on the new chaff tray if you have it, as noted in the Chaff Tray Instructions PDF above.
