Question about Char-Broil Silver Smoker

1 Answer

Do not have the manual for my smoker

I have a charcoal grill/smoker that I have never used as a smoker. It is the type with the smaller (i'm assumming the part that would be used for the smoke) on the left, and the main griller (about 3 feet wide) with a stove pipe on the right. This smoker does not use gas.

    Thank you for the info. But I have heard something about adding wood chips. If I want to use wood chips, do I place them right on top of the charcoal?

If it looks like the one in the picture you put the fire in the firebox (smaller one) on the left. Best to use lump charcoal and keep the temp low for smoking, around 210 to 245F. Open the lid on the smoke stack all the way until you gain some experience. If you keep too much smoke in too long it will be bitter. Place the meat on the far right side of the main barrel. Go to www.smokingmeat.com and join for free. There is a bunch of us there who share smoking recipies and methods of smoking, sauces, rubs, etc. Slow cooking and low temp are the secrets to smoking meat.

Here is a link to the owners manual for one of Char-broils grill smokers. It may not be the exact model you have (you failed to mention the model #), but they all basically work the same way.You will find how to use the smoker under the section entitled "Preparing & using Your Silver Smoker". You can download and print the manual for future reference.

I put the charcoal in the bottom bowl in the smoker. what do u put in the top bowl right above that? i am making beef jerkey


Hi there....the top bowl which is smaller than the charcoal bowl is primarily for water to keep moisture in the roasting environment while cooking..I don't think you want to add miosture to make jerky...I have a Ronco food dehydrator for that...I only use my smoker for slow cooking and roasting/smoking large peices of meat..I hope this was helpful.....

Have charcoal grill/small smoker. burned the meat in the small smoker. Do i put meat on the grill side and use the small smoker for charcoal and wood chips only? my grill did not come with a manual


It depends on whether your trying to smoke the meat or grill the meat. You can't do both at once.
If you want to grill the meat, don't even fool with the smoker part. Put the charcoal in the grill side, light it and allow it to get white hot, before putting the meat on to sear it on both sides first, before moving it to a cooler part of the grill to finish cooking to your likeness.

If you're trying to smoke meat or whatever, you use only the smoker side for heat and smoke. By, usually using some type of hardwood, like Oak, Mesquite , Pecan. etc. However, the meat or whatever you want to smoke, goes on the grill side (No charcoal required under it), because smoking is a low heat (200 - 225 degrees F) slow process. Any where from a couple of hours up top 8 hours, depending on what and how much you're smoking. It's often referred to, as "Low & Slow."

Hope this helped you to better understand how a combination grill-smoker works. Once you do a little receipe research and get the hang of it, you'll really enjoy it.

I can't get the temperature high enough to go beyon warm, no matter how many briquets I place in the bottom pan.


Most of the time, it's not how much charcoal you use, it's how and where you place the charcoal pan for grilling and searing, as opposed to smoking food. The higher the charcoal pan in the grill, the more air it gets and the charcoal gets hotter. To illustrate this I have included a link to your Owners Manual (in case you have misplaced yours), to you can download and print for future reference. Pay particular attention to page # 9 - Grilling and Searing.

http://images.brinkmann.net/docs/pdf/810-5301-C.pdf

I would add to what your Owners Manual says about what type of charcoal to use, by suggesting that you use all natuarl lump charcoal, instead of briquette type charcoal. It the all natural lump charcoal is easier to light, without starter fluid. Plus, it burns cleaner and hotter than briquette type charcoal.

This should help you solve the issue you're having Happy Grilling!!

There was no users manual with the smoker. do i use charcoal or lava rocks and where do i put them


Hi,

I have used a number of propane smokers and your propane burner will be located at the bottom of the smoker cabinet and you should have a wood / charcoal box above that in which you can place your charcoal or wood.

I have attached a picture that shows the wood / charcoal box. It's not the same smoker but it will give you an idea.




Hope this helps.

Cheers,

How do I use this grill? Charcoal in the larger cavity and wood in the firebox???


I assume you have the model with the side firebox? If so, when smoking you have your charcoal and wood in the firebox and the meat to be cooked in the large cook chamber. This is indirect heat cooking. Your cooker is dual purpose. You can load the large chamber grates with charcoal and cook as would with a charcoal or gas grill (direct heat cooking), or you can cook low and slow using the smoker portion. The heat comes in from the firebox and into the cook area. Ideally the temp in the cook chamber should be around 225 while smoking meats in this manner.

Google "smoker forums" and you will find a group of guys will to help you learn to cook with a smoker and share cooking secrets.

I hope this helps.

We have mislaid operating instructions. How do you work it?


This link should help you get a new set of operation manuals.
http://www.brinkmann.net/products/details.aspx?item=810-5301-C

The basics of this unit is, load up the charcoal pan, fill the water tray up about 2/3 full, have some wood chips soaking overnight, pick your favorite recipe for a smoker (try smoker burgers!) umm and easy for the first try.

Get your charcoal going assuming not the electric model, place the meat on the grills, close lid, try to maintain about 225 temps, add your soaked chips on top of the coals, check you temps, add more charcoal when the temps start to drop on long cooks. You should be able to smoke some burgers in about an hour and a half. Low temps and slow cooking is the key.

I hope I have helped you out.

Was given a brinkmann gourmet charcoal smoker/no manuals


Sure...the smoker top and middle lift off. There is a pan that goes over the charcoal pit. The pan is used to create moist heat. It will produce steam while you cook. I recommend flavoring whatever fluid you put in the pan with fruit, fruit juice, or frozen concentrate, or wine, mixed with water. You can put your initial batch of charcoal in the bottom, (pit) and fire it up just as you would any charcoal grill. once the coals are ready, you can put the pan over them, put the middle section in, (with whatever meat you prefer), then finally the top. During cooking, to produce a smoky flavor, you can put water soaked hickory or misquete chips with the charcoal, it has a door for access. You can also add charcoal as needed to maintain the desired heat level thru the door. Remember, it takes longer to prepare food on the smoker, the key is low heat and longer cooking times. For example, I usually cook a boston **** at about 185 degrees for up to 12 hours. Bon Appetite!
