Question about Char-Broil Charcoal Water Smoker 4654301

3 Answers

Frustrated-please help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Having difficulty maintaining heat in the ideal range on the gauge and cooking food up to temperature. we have to finish things in the oven. Gauge stays in the warm range. We do know that the gauge does work because we lit behind it with a lighter and it moves fine up to hot range. once the charcoal is in white ash range, we add more charcoal like it says in the instruction manual and open little door. We can see the flame but the gauge never gets up to ideal range. please help

I have the charcoal brinkman smoke n grill, had the same problem until i found brinkmansmokermods.com
the grill they are working on is a little different from mine but i used the same idea and added 4 holes in the bottom of the charcoal bowl with a 9/16 bit. This will fix your temp problems but will give you another one......the charcoal ash falls on the ground. To fix this i went to Lowes and bought a 24" water heater pan to sit the grill in to catch all of the ash.
Also I found the weber charcoal grate at my Ace Hardware here in Cypress Tx.
Good luck!!

The problem is that you are not getting enough air into the smoker. What you need to do is drill some holes along the bottom of the smoker to let more air in. This is a notorious problem with that smoker

    You drill the holes along the bottom, below the pan. As for how many and how big, it's just a trial and error type of thing. I would use a quarter inch bit and space the hole out evenly until you can maintain temperature. Sorry so long for a response

Forget the charcoal and place an electric hot plate in bottom. the cord will fit through air holes. put the soaked wood chips in a castiron skillet, then place the hot water pan above it

I have Ronson slow cooker with no manual, it has settings 1,2 qnd auto. Which is high and low, and what does auto setting do>


I also have a Ronson slow cooker.

Instructions from the book read as follows:
- On setting 1 (low), the slow cooker can operate all day and night if required.
- When set to 2 (high), it is very much like a covered pot on the stove. Foods will cook in half the time required for 1 (low).
- When set to auto, the slow cooker will cook on 2 (high) until the food reaches a pre-set temperature, then switches to 1 (low) and maintains a constant slow cooking temperature. Auto is the ideal setting for someone leaving the house for the whole day as most food will cook for 8-9 hours and be ready to serve when they return.

I always use the auto setting, unless I don't have as much time, and will then use setting 2.

I have a Chef Ceran Cooktop Model EHC64oU with four elements. The problem is that it doesn't seem to cook anything on a low heat. It stays on low for a few minutes and then the the temperature increases...


I am assuming having looked up the model that you have a glass top range. These ranges use a thermostat to regulate cooking temperature, and when they go bad you will either suffer from erratic cooking temperature or have no heat at all. The best solution I can think of is to replace that thermostat.

Uneven cooking food has to be turned every 10 minutes, bottom of food burns and top dosent cook


How does the food know which way its facing?

Try covering the food with a lid from a smaller pan.

And always remember...to cook faster, sometimes you have to cook slower! A carbon layer on food acts as a heat shield against further cooking!

Ronson slow cooker settings


Hi. I'm a Ronson Service Centre in Australia.

I grabbled this blurb from a Ronson Slow Cooker Manual.

On Setting 1 (Low) the Slow Cooker can operate all day and night if required.
When set to 2 (High) it is very much like a covered pot on the stove. Foods will cook in ½ the time required for 1 (Low)
When set to Auto, the Slow Cooker will cook on 2 until the food reaches a pre-set temperature, then switches to 1 and maintains a constant slow cooking temperature.
“Auto” is the ideal setting for someone leaving the house for the whole day as most food will cook for 8-9 hours and be ready to serve when they return.

I can not change temperature to more than 41f. Lower temperatures are OK


Temperature is perhaps the most critical means of control in the prevention of foodborne illness. Harmful (disease-causing) microorganisms grow within a temperature range of 41 F to 140 F (referred to as the "Temperature Danger Zone"). Many foods, especially raw animal products, naturally contain harmful microorganisms. Keeping foods out of the Temperature Danger Zone prevents disease-causing microorganisms from growing in foods. Proper cooking and reheating of food is important because heat destroys disease-causing microorganisms that may be present. Ensuring proper heating and storage temperatures is essential for assuring safe food in retail operations. Temperature guidelines differ depending on the type of food and method of heating method.

Freezing
Most pathogenic microorganisms will not grow below 41 F, or their growth will be very slow. However, many spoilage microorganisms (which cause foods to taste and smell bad) can grow at temperatures well below 41 F. Most foods that are frozen in food retail are done to improve quality and increase the shelf- life of the product. Most foods will freeze at about 28-30 F. To ensure safe freezer temperatures, be sure that your freezer is maintained at least 28-30 F or below (foods should be frozen solid). Ideally, foods should be frozen at 0 F or below to maintain quality.


It seems that your Refrigrator's higgest point is set to 41 F
