SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have purchased model #20050611. Can I smoke

Wood only. No Charcoal. If you're using wood chips - soak them first. No sure wood chunks will work, as they will have a tendency to flare up & burn rather than smoke.

The presoaked wood chips go in the flame disc bowl, below the water bowl. The water bowl goes on the first shelf bracket from the bottom up.

I was going to send you a copy of your Owners Manual, but the Model Number you listed does not match up with any Masterbuilt Smokers?

Enjoy your smoker,

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 best way to cook on this grill and how do you use the smoker on the grill. I put some meat on this grill and all my meat burn up. also I will like to know how to use the small smoke box on the side.


    Hi dale37...
    The small smoke box on the left is used to put your charcoal/wood in, this is where your heat and smoke will come from to cook your meat.
    You will adjust your heat going to the large side by adjusting your air vent/s.
    It is meant to cook the meat slowly as to make it "fall of the bone" tender.
    Great for doing pulled pork also....just takes lots of time because your slow cooking the meat.
    Do not use charcoal/wood under the big grill side unless you plan to stay with and turn the meat to keep from burning it.

    Bought little chief model 20 smoker don't know how to use it...


    The Little Chief smoker, manufactured by Smokehouse, is available in front-loading and top-loading styles. Both models are electric, depending on a 250 W electric heating element to supply the heat. The smokers can accommodate a maximum of 25 lb. of meat or fish. These smokers are for outdoor use only, and plug into a 120 V AC electrical outlet.

    1. Brining
      • For extra flavor, treat your meat, poultry or fish to a brine bath before smoking. Use 1 cup of kosher salt for each gallon of water. Consider adding molasses, spices or even a pureed jalapeno pepper or two into the brine solution. Leave thicker pieces of meat in the brine solution overnight. Fish only need to be soaked in brine for around four hours.

      Wood Chips
      • Mesquite and hickory are probably the two most widely used woods for smoking, but apple and pecan wood can give your smoked foods another tasty dimension. As with anything else, experiment to create your own favorites.

        Smoker wood is sold either as chips or chunks. Use large chunks to smoke thicker pieces of meat; the chips will be spent before they have thoroughly smoked the meat. You can continually replenish the chips, perhaps every half hour, for as long as you wish to smoke the food, but the job can be tedious with a large roast that takes hours to smoke.

        Smoke the wood well before it is introduced to the heat. Chips will be completely soaked in a half hour, but chunks of wood will require an overnight soaking before use.

      Smoking
      • When your meat is thoroughly brined, and the wood soaked, carefully lay out the meat on the smoking racks. Make sure that there is some space between each piece. Place fish on the rack with the skin-side down. Drain your wood and place it into the smoker on top of the heating element. Use the small pot that is provided to keep moisture or collect juices. Place the racks into the smoker and close up the box. Plug in the electrical cord and within about 10 minutes, you should see smoke gently trickling out from the smoker's vents. The thicker the food inside the smoker, the longer the process will take.

      Where do up put the wood chips in the electric smoker?


      I'm smoking a turkey right now and I'm using this method:

      http://www.smoker-cooking.com/using-smoker-woodchips.html

      This electric smoker wasn't designed (in my opinion) for chips. In fact, the manual suggests chunks and sticks. Too bad though since my local Bass Pro Shops store sells a great selection of chips.

      We'll see. It seems the above method is working so far. Just let the element heat up to glowing first.

      Page 3 on this link shows the wood tray and explains the water tray. Wood chips are soaked to make them last. They will still go pretty fast but you can add more. Soak the chips or chunks overnight.

      Where do i put my wood chips? under the heating


      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!
