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.

    I have never had a smoker before is the water pan the bottom one or is that the wood chip pan?


    Hi
    To use your Brinkman Smoker or Other Smokers
    1... Marinate or place a rub on the meat you will be smoking, and let it sit for a few hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
    2...Cover your wood chips with water(and if you wish you can add some Jim Beam Whisky or other flavorfull liquids in a bowl with the water, 1 inch above the wood chips and use a flat peice of metal (pie pan,etc.)to weigh the wood chips down underwater.
    You will do the wood chips at least 24 hrs before you plan to start smoking this gives the wood time to soak in the flavorfull liquids.
    3...Start a fire in the smoker having the fire below the meat, but wait to put the meat on till the flames (if any) subside.
    Use the water pan below the meat (if you use one) to catch the juices from the meat...it will be above the pan with the charcoal in it.
    Use hardwood or charcoal for your fire/smoke,
    Once the charcoal/wood are coated with gray ash, you can place the meat on the racks.
    I would place an aluminum drip pan under the center portion of the cooking area on your smoker, to catch the juices from the meat, if you do not use a water pan.
    4...Place the meat in the smoker on the grilling surface, and place the wood chips over the charcoal and hardwood in the main grilling area Close the lid and do not open it unless you must add wood chips during the cooking process.
    Monitor the tempreture
    5...Continue adding wood chips to the tray as needed during the time you are cooking.
    If you have a Brinkmann or other smoker with one chamber for placing the wood chips and the meat, add wood chips only once per hour.
    6...Apply your sauce to the meat one hour before the meat should be done.
    Test your meat with a thermometer for for an internal tempreture of 160 degrees for medium and 170-180 degrees for medium well to well
    Note: Apply the sauce quickly to avoid loosing the heat in your smoker if you leave it open too long it will allow the heat and smoke to escape, increasing the cooking time.
    Close the lid if it needs to continue cooking till you reach the right internal tempreture
    7...Test your meat with a meat thermometer after a few hours of cooking time.
    Make sure your meat is at least 160 degrees internal tempreture for medium and more than 170 degrees for medium to well.
    Close the lid and maintain your heat if it needs to continue cooking.
    Please take time to rate me.

    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 does the wood chips need to be placed in the smoker?? I don't see a chip pan.


    If you don't have the wood chip tray, you're sitting dead in water, at this point. The wood chip tray goes above the burner, below the water pan. If this is a brand new, just purchased smoker. Go back to where you purchased it or call the number in Owner's Manual for "Parts missing". If it's not brand new, you can purchase a smoker tray from Masterbuilt Customer Service 1.800.489.1581

    Hope this helped you.

    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


    Hello,
    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

    Don't know where to put wood chunks in a Char-broil electric h20 smoker!!


    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.
