Swamin,I understand that some brihasbathis place kopparai thengai in a tray made of aluminium foil, pour ghee and consign fire in it instead of samithu or wicks

for Homam so that no smoke emanates from it ; this they say is more hygenic. Have you seen this or have you heard of the same. Is this the modern practice?

Kindly clarify and oblige.
