Line you water pan with foil add soaked hickory chips to it. Fill the hickory chip box with soaked hickory chunks. Keep your fire low. Low and slow babes. Keep the temp in the box to 190. Add more hickory every hour or so as needed.

I like to season my smoker before actually cooking in them. Here is how I would treat yours. I would wipe down all the grills and inside the cooking area with a vegetable oil. You can do this with a bottle of oil and a rag or do what what many do and just spray the whole inside down with PAM. Once this is done I would light the burner and bring the temperature up about as high as it will go for about 10 minutes and then turn it off. Once the heat is gone down to a point it is safe to touch, re-spray the insides. It should be ready to cook. Re-spray grills before each use.

I have heard that the "new" propane tanks have a saftey valve that closes if they are opened too quickly, try opening the valve very slowly. When you say it has been cleaned that means you have checked the venturi and the burner for spiders?

It depends on the diameter more than the weight. Your best bet is to use a probe thermometer to get your optimum temperature in the dead center of the roast. Cooking by time is always a crapshoot.

If you're looking for that silver bullet that explains why your brisket isn't as good as Franklin's, you won't find it here. The truth is, there is no silver bullet. You want to believe that it's some magic ingredient, temperature, or other trivial element that makes his brisket so good and if you only knew that 1 secret, yours would be just as good. It's not that easy. It's a process. In all seriousness, he does let you in on the secret behind his great food, but it's not an easy shortcut. He had a passion, he tinkered, he produced some really bad BBQ but persevered, he paid attention to the details, tweaked some to experiment, found out what worked and what didn't and then, over time, became an expert with a well-developed sense of intuition. The truth is that formula has worked for hundreds of people, great writers, radio hosts, businessmen, programmers and other professionals uses that exact same set of steps to become masters, read their biographies and listen to their interviews, it's the same story. It's hard work, it's not because Aaron uses pickle juice blessed by a New Orleans witch doctor during an eclipse as an injection precisely 14.373581 hours before it goes on the grill. It's because he's got years of practice, years of paying attention to the details, learning what matters and what doesn't, and then persevering through the failures those experiments yielded.

Take it back while it is still under warranty. Or call Charbroil if you got it online. If you turn the infrared up all the way and it doesn't get super hot, something mechanical isn't working correctly. It could be anything from the burner to the gas jets to the regulator to an obstruction in your gas line. Get the manufacturer or retailer to take responsibility for fixing it.
