Put the briquettes in the bottom pan and put the wood chips around the outside edge. Put water in the top pan. All this must be done before you light the charcoal. Using an electric lighter works best and won't change the flavor of your food like starter fluid will. After coals are lit, place meat on rack and seal everything up. Now you're Smokin'!

Dip wood chips/chunks in boiling hot water for a few minutes if you're in a hurry or allow to to soak in tap water for about an hour if you have plenty of time. Either way, place the soaked chips around and under the heating element at the bottom. Don't throw out the water; heat it up and pour it in the water pan. Heating it up to boil will give your smoker a good head start. I've been doing that on my char-broil smoker for years.

Buy some lava rocks from your local hardware store. Get just enough to cover the coil with 1 layer of rocks. This will help control and retain the heat produced by the coil. Now, just throw a couple chunks of pre-soaked wood on top. I recommend hickory or cherry...never mesquite, it is way too harsh for slow smoking. Happy smoking!

you soaked the wood chips in water for about 30 min. shake excess of water and place them on the flame disk bowl right under the water bowl.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
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.
Add the cooking grates to the top of the unit and close the lid to allow the unit to preheat.
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.
Check the water level occasionally by opening the door on the side of the Charbroil Electric Smoker unit. Add more water as needed.
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.
