Question about Brinkmann Smoke' n Grill Electric Double 810-5290-C

1 Answer

My Brinkmann Electric Smoke and Grill (Double) is cooking

My 24 pound turkey in half the time the manual says. I keep adding cold water to try to slow down the cooking. Could it be my element is malfunctioning and cooking at a much higher temperature? Should I unplug for 1/2 hour intervals to slow down the process?

I hope your turkey turned out OK. I read all of the smoking and grilling forums and it seemed to be a very common occurrence yesterday that turkeys cooked in far less time that the grill masters thought they would. Could be that most birds are pre-brined and the additional moisture causes the birds to cook faster. Could be that they are leaner than in the past and the fat renders sooner, causing internal temp to rise faster.

I would let it cook and just check the internal meat temperature at regular intervals starting about 15 minutes per pound.

At what temperature was your smoker running during your cook?

How long do you cook a turkey in a Hamilton Beach roaster oven and what temperature


Hello Angela Couch,

You treat the Roaster like any other oven...
Off the TOP OF MY HEAD...

More importantly... The TURKEY must be thawed properly to be cooked properly.

I FIGURE 23 to 25 minutes per pound at
325° F... If Stuffed add a of pound of cooking time for each pound added by stuffing

Monitor closely with your MEAT THERMOMETER...!!
Your turkey is done when the temperature with a meat thermometer is 180° F in thigh and 165° F in chest or stuffing.

Take your instructions from the TURKEY...
(Altered appropriately by STUFFED or NOT
STUFFED) and backed up with a good
QUALITY meat thermometer...!!

I have a 24 pound turkey that I want to cook in the roaster oven over night. Can this be done and how?


You can, but cooking overnight will ruin the turkey. The bird will be overcooked and literally fall apart. The term is called 'cooking to rags'. The bre asttt meat will be very dried out.

Unstuffed is only 4 to 4 1/2 hours. Stuffed is 5 to 5 1/2 hours. I only stuff the neck end. Another tip is to cook the turkey bre asttt down. If you do it that way, all the juices from the fattier part of the turkey, the legs and thighs bastes the bre asttt as it cooks. If you cook it this way once, you will do it every year. Turn the bird over to carve it once it has rested for 20 minutes. Tent it with foil. Put folded foil over the wings. I am a trade masterchef.

How long to cook a 19 pound turkey


Cooking times will differ depending on whether your bird was purchased fresh or frozen. Plan on 20 minutes per pound in a 350 degree F oven for a defrosted turkey and 10 to 15 minutes per pound for fresh. 4. A turkey will cook more evenly if it is not densely stuffed.

How long does a 16lb turkey need to defrost in the refrigerator?


According to the USDA, when thawing your turkey in the refrigerator, you'll need to allow 24 hours for every four to five pounds. Don't bother with the math-here's a table: 4 to 12 pounds: 1-3 days. 12 to 16 pounds: 3-4 days.14 Aug 2012

I put the charcoal in the bottom bowl in the smoker. what do u put in the top bowl right above that? i am making beef jerkey


Hi there....the top bowl which is smaller than the charcoal bowl is primarily for water to keep moisture in the roasting environment while cooking..I don't think you want to add miosture to make jerky...I have a Ronco food dehydrator for that...I only use my smoker for slow cooking and roasting/smoking large peices of meat..I hope this was helpful.....

In the water pan, do you just add water or can you put some wood chips with the water? i want to smoke a boston ****. should I put it in fooil or cook unwrappped?


No, the water pan is just for water. The pre-soaked wood chips go in the charcoal bowl on top of the heated charcoal. Putting the wood chips in the water bowl with water in it, would serve no purpose as far as adding a smokey flavor is concerned. If you desire a smokey flavor, do not wrap the **** in anything.

In case you have misplaced your owner's Manual, I have included a link to it that you can download and print for future reference. http://images.brinkmann.net/docs/pdf/810-5301-C.pdf

I hope this helps you, to further your enjoyment of using a smoker. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Where do up put the wood chips in the electric smoker?


I'm smoking a turkey right now and I'm using this method:

http://www.smoker-cooking.com/using-smoker-woodchips.html

This electric smoker wasn't designed (in my opinion) for chips. In fact, the manual suggests chunks and sticks. Too bad though since my local Bass Pro Shops store sells a great selection of chips.

We'll see. It seems the above method is working so far. Just let the element heat up to glowing first.

I just bought a second-hand Brinkmann Smoke 'n Grill with recipe book but no operating instructions. Can you help please


Whether it is electric or charcoal it really makes no diff. This is a sweet machine!. Your fire is on bottom your water pan is above that. you meat is at the top. This makes the heat be indirect on the meat. You pour in some liquid smoke into your water pan. Rum your meat good. Low and slow is the theme here. Oh yeah you can set it up to grill away. The heat source pan and grill can all be rearranged but this baby is built to smoke! Low and slow.

We have mislaid operating instructions. How do you work it?


This link should help you get a new set of operation manuals.
http://www.brinkmann.net/products/details.aspx?item=810-5301-C

The basics of this unit is, load up the charcoal pan, fill the water tray up about 2/3 full, have some wood chips soaking overnight, pick your favorite recipe for a smoker (try smoker burgers!) umm and easy for the first try.

Get your charcoal going assuming not the electric model, place the meat on the grills, close lid, try to maintain about 225 temps, add your soaked chips on top of the coals, check you temps, add more charcoal when the temps start to drop on long cooks. You should be able to smoke some burgers in about an hour and a half. Low temps and slow cooking is the key.

I hope I have helped you out.
