Re: help

What you need to do is start a fire in the small side and have all your vents fully open. When the temp gauge gets between 150 and 250 you can add the type of meat you are going to smoke. You can add wood chips every hour to get that smoky flavor into your meat. You must maintain a low temp in order to get the best results. I usually smoke at 200 degrees from 5 to 12 hours long depending on what type of meat you are smoking. You must control the heat with the vents on the fire box side and also the exhaust where the smoke comes out. It takes a little practice but it is well worth it. You can also go to and they have a whole bunch of tips on how to use different types of smokers, rubs, sauces, meats and so forth. Good Luck and happy smoking

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.

    The users manual arrived with the product but there are no user instructions and aswell as direct grilling I want to use the grill to cook joints etc. What setting do you use for indirect grilling and Is...

    Direct Grilling is putting the items you're grilling directly over the burner(s) . Indirect Grilling is preheating the grill, turning off one or two burners and place the food over the burners that are OFF. In direct grilling requires cooking with the lid closed.

    Need a owners manual for the 34" propane smoker great outdoors smokey mountain smoker


    The truth is that the user manual/instruction for your propane smoker is not available anywhere online. The manufacturers of this unit did not make it available. I went further searching and couldn't find any.

    I would suggest you contact the manufacturer of this unit via phone or e-mail and request for the instruction/user manual from them. They might give it to you or direct you to a dealer where you can get the instruction/user manual.

    This is the best you can do to get the instruction/user manual you are requesting for. Go to the propane smoker's website, check "Contact Us" and you would see their e-mail and phone number.

    Below are some instructions that may help you with your propane smoker;

    Set Up the Tank

    The first thing to do in using your propane smoker is to connect the propane tank to the smoker. Open its valve by turning it in a clockwise direction. Next, you need to locate the wood chip box. Fill the box with any wood that you prefer, like hickory, mesquite or oak.

    The wood chips when lit produce a smoky flavor that is absorbed by the food in the propane smoker. Each type of wood produces its own distinct flavor. Remember to soak the wood chips for at least an hour before using them so that they do not burn quickly. Soaking the wood chips also helps to create more smoke inside the propane smoker.

    Fill the Water Box

    After filling the wood chip box, you need to fill up the water box of the propane smoker. It is usually located right above the wood chip box. You can fill the water box with water or with sand. You can leave it empty, but it is best filled with water because the evaporation during the cooking process keeps the food from getting dry and tough.

    When cooking with a propane smoker, moisture is important. Keep adding water when the level in the box is low. To add more flavor to your food, you can also add spices and seasonings to the water.

    Cooking Time

    The propane smoker is almost ready. All that is left to do is turn on the smoker and adjust the temperature. Most models have a rotary dial that controls the level of temperature in the smoker. The temperature depends on the type of food that will be cooked.

    You should use a higher temperature for thick slices of meat and a lower temperature for thin slices of meat or for vegetables. Once you see smoke coming out of the smoker, it is time to put in your meat or vegetables. Cooking time depends on the kind of food being cooked and the thickness of the meat being smoked.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck.

    Is meat placed in main grill or in attached box

    The "offset" box is your firebox. This is where you will put your charcoal. The meat goes in the larger chamber on the grill. This type of cooking is known as indirect cooking where the heat source is not directly under the meat. A grill cooks direct with the heat source coming from charcoal or gas burners located directly under the cook grills. Smoker can really deliver some great tasting food. Be patient and learn the ins and outs of cooking with a smoker. The most important thing is to cook low and slow. try to keep your temps in the cook chamber around 225. I hope this helps.
