Can I use the wood chip pan directly (not the side chute)?

It is a big process it has 7 steps they are as follows
  • 1

    Soak hardwood chips in water for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours for larger chunks. Drain them completely before adding to the smoker unit. Use 1 1/2 cups of wood chips when smoking for less than 3 hours. For longer cooking times use 3 cups of wood.

  • 2

    Place the bottom unit that contains the heating element on a sturdy surface, away from flammable materials. Make a foil pouch containing the wood chips and punch a few holes in the top. Place this pouch onto the pan containing the heating element. The chips can be added directly to the pan, but the foil pouch makes cleanup easier.

  • Place the large water pan onto the unit and fill it 2/3 full of water or apple juice. The water or juice will moderate the temperature and provide moisture for the cooking food.

  • 4

    Add the cooking grates to the top of the unit and close the lid to allow the unit to preheat.

  • 5

    Place the food on the preheated grates and cook until done. Keep the lid closed as much as possible to maintain the heat. Open the vent on the top of the lid to allow the smoke to escape.

  • 6

    Check the water level occasionally by opening the door on the side of the Charbroil Electric Smoker unit. Add more water as needed.

  • 7

    Add more soaked wood chips after a few hours if the smoke begins to die away. This is optional; the chips provide flavor but are not necessary for cooking the meat.

    Are porcelin flavor plates removable? If so, how?

    If you're referring to Powder-Coated Porcelain Cast Iron Adjustable Grates. Yes, they are removable. They just lift off the grill. As do the tent shaped Flame Tamer/Flavorizer plates under the grill grates and above each burner. They should be removed regularly for cleaning.

    Hope this helped you and Happy Grilling!

    I have a new Masterbuilt electric smokehouse, ser. # 20070106 I have misplaced my manual. I need to know what the extra parts I got with it is for. There is a long near black pan, A metal square pan with...

    Look on the back of the smoker and you will see 2 clips near the bottom under the drip tube. The long black pan has tabs that clide into the clips. This catches drippings from the xmoker. The metal square pan is the drip tray that goes in the bottom and the oval pan is the water pan that slides in the smoker right above the chip box.

    First time using my smoker

    Yes keep water in the pan to keep the meat from getting too dry as you smoke it. closing the top vent will keep more of the smoke in but can keep it from smoking if closed too much, you will need to experiment with that...
    Keep enough chips in the smoker to make the desired amount of smoke that you want. Again here, all smokers are a bit different and you will have to experiment with you's

    Not enough heat

    I have not gotten a solution from FixYa, but some of the responses to other questions have revealed my plan of modification to the unit. No i would not like the Premium Assistance Plan, yet.

    Brinkmann upright smoker not hot enough!

    I have a very similar smoker to this and this is what I have to solve the problem.

    First drill some holes in the fire pan. This gives more air to the charcoal to get a hotter burn. I went with about 6 or so holes around the sides of the pan with a 1/2" bit. You could also get a grill basket from Home Depot. It is a square pan with holes throughout and made out of stainless steel. I bought one, but switched back because you can't hold as much charcoal/wood.

    Second, get some play sand and fill the water pan with it. You will need to cover it with some heavy duty foil to keep drippings off it. Also, add some water to it once in a while to keep it moist. This should not only help in raising the temps, but give you a more consistent temperature as well.

    Third, invest in a good grill/smoker thermometer to make sure the one on the front isn't wrong. My smoker is the hottest in the back (not sure why) and the thermometers on these brinkman's probably aren't the most accurate.

    Brinkman electric smoker

    The pan for the wood chips is a round shallow (1/2 or so high) pan, about 8 inches in diameter, that sits right on top of the heating element. The element doesn't get too terribly hot, so you could probably substitute a foil pie plate or even a double wrapped package of aluminum foil with some holes punched in the top. When you see the smoke - its time for the meat!

    Good eats!
