Grill wok replaces charcoal bin
Confirming that it works well. Super idea and very effective tool for keeping the fire consistently hot. Roughly $12 for one at local depot. This takes the frustration factor out.

Temp will stay nicely for an extended period of time. You will use less charcoal, but you do need to check on it every 1 1/2 to 2 hours to keep the temp constant.

Going online and reading the reviews on my smoker from Home Depot I found out that everyone has this problem with this smoker. Without making any adjustments it doesn't get enough air to the coals to make the temp go up. Most people drilled holes into the coal pan and that works fine.

Rice cooking


This morning I have encountered a great many questions on rice cookers, so I remembered the time when I had one and why I started cooking rice again.
The rice was beautifully cooked in the cooker, but it took up too much space on my kitchen bench. So I turned to pots and the micro.
Cooking rice in a microwave
  • take 1cup water
  • 2 cups rice
  • a pinch of salt
  • put the water, salt and rice together in a bowl with a lid
  • blend well
  • put the lid on the bowl
  • put the bowl into the micro
  • on the micro, keep full force and set the timer on five minutes
  • start the cooking
  • after five minutes open the micro, open the bowl and stir the rice with a fork.put the lid on again keep the micro going for another 10 minutes.
  • repeat the stirring prosess, until the rice is nice and fluffy andready to serve.
Cooking rice in a pot with a lid.
  • take 1cup water

  • pinch of salt
  • put the ingridience in a pot, and an oven safe pan
  • in the pot, now with a tight lid. Put on a cooker on highest temperature for five minutes.
  • open the pot, stir the rice with a fork.
  • lower heat and cook for another 15-20 minutes,, stirring occasionally.
  • the rice is cooked when fluffy.

I need an instruction manual for a cooks essentials air fryer


How to Use Your Fryer:
  • Remove all packaging materials, sticker, and labels.
  • Clean the basket and pan with hot water, soap and a non-abrasive sponge. These parts are dishwasher safe.
  • Wipe the inside and outside of the appliance with a clean cloth.
  • Place the air fryer on a flat and even surface.
  • Put the basket in the pan.
  • Plug unit in to an approved wall socket.
  • Place the ingredients in the basket and then put the basket and pan back into the appliance. The fryer LED will light up.

  • Once you have set your cooking time and temperature, press the "Start" Button.
  • The heating icon and fan icon will be blinking and this means that the fryer is starting and is circulating the hot air in the fryer. NOTE: During hot air frying, you will notice that the heating up icon will blink and stays from time to time. When the heating icon is on, it means that the temperature inside the fryer has reached the set temperature. When the heating icon is blinking, it means that the temperature inside the fryer dropped and is below the set temperature and is currently heating up to the reach the set temperature.
  • Some ingredients may need to be shaken halfway through the cooking cycle (see "Cooking Guide"), To do this, pull the pan out of the air fryer by the handle, the air fryer will automatically shut down. Then shake the contents in the basket, then slide the pan back into the air fryer and it will resume the cooking cycle. CAUTION: Do not press the button on the handle during shaking; this will detach the basket from the pan.

  • Pull the pan out of the fryer and place it on a pot holder. The cooking pan is VERY HOT do not put on surface that can burn. NOTE: Oil from the ingredients will gather in the bottom of the pan, so be careful when pulling the pan out of the fryer.
  • To remove the ingredients, press the button on the handle of the pan to detach the basket. DO NOT TURN THE PAN OVER. PLACE ON A POT HOLDER.
  • Upon placing the cooking basket back into the air fryer, the air fryer will automatically go to the previous cooking cycle and will repeat the previous cooking cycle, press the cancel button to stop and reset the air fryer if desired.

Traeger grill not smoking


This is a common complaint about Traeger grills. Some people have resolved it with smoke pipes which contain pellets that smolder during the cooking process.

Others use different pellets than Traeger pellets but they void their warranty when they do. For me, Traeger pellets seem to put out enough smoke at the low temperatures I use (less than 200 degrees) but if I get above 200, the smoke goes sway.

When I cook pork shoulders, I try to keep the temperature at 180. In ideal conditions the Traeger will fluctuate between 160 and 200, averaging 180. If I can maintain this low-slow cooking temp-speed, I get a good smoke ring and decent smoke flavor.

If I get above 200, I lose much of the flavor but usually have a smoke ring though not as intense as at the lower temps. There are lots of conversations about this on blogs at the Traeger website and at the Pelletheads website.

How do I smoke in this Smoker/Grill? Like where do I put the Smoker chips there is no smoker chip box, just the pan for the charcoal and a pan I think for water.


Hi karin 1967...

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 do not put the meat on yet, wait till the flames die down first.
Once they are coated with gray ash, you can place the meat on the racks and add your soaked chips to the smoker.
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 are not using a water pan in that position.
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.
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.

Engine heats up to 200 then won't start.


Remove the thermostat, check in pan of water for opening temperature, replace IF it does not respond to various water temperatures...follow the radiator hose from the top to the top of the block...the little cast iron BULB contains the Thermostat, drain radiator first...drain plug found on bottom of radiator, take off radiator cap to equal the pressure which will enable it to drain...if cloudy/dirty, replace with new solution/water..

Cooking Time


Google "Smokering" and you will find a lot of forums dedicated to smoking food. It is an art in itself but many of these forums are helpful in learning.

The answer to your question is basically put as many racks of ribs that fit without touching and as long as the temperature is maintained they will all cook at the same time. I typically smoke my ribs at 225 for 4-5 hours.

I need the farberware rotisserie manual suggested


All Farberware Rotisserie Manuals are available for download at http://openhearth.info. The manual that has the prime rib recipe is http://openhearth.info/450.htm . However, I have tried this recipe, and if cooked according to those instructions, the prime rib will be overdone. I take mine off at a much lower temperature to allow for carry-over cooking. These rotisseries make the BEST prime rib!

Brinkmann upright smoker not hot enough!


I have a very similar smoker to this and this is what I have to solve the problem.

First drill some holes in the fire pan. This gives more air to the charcoal to get a hotter burn. I went with about 6 or so holes around the sides of the pan with a 1/2" bit. You could also get a grill basket from Home Depot. It is a square pan with holes throughout and made out of stainless steel. I bought one, but switched back because you can't hold as much charcoal/wood.

Second, get some play sand and fill the water pan with it. You will need to cover it with some heavy duty foil to keep drippings off it. Also, add some water to it once in a while to keep it moist. This should not only help in raising the temps, but give you a more consistent temperature as well.

Third, invest in a good grill/smoker thermometer to make sure the one on the front isn't wrong. My smoker is the hottest in the back (not sure why) and the thermometers on these brinkman's probably aren't the most accurate.
