I don't have a manual and when I tried to access char-broil's website the page I needded to access wasn't available.I am thinking of installing a propane or electric burner for use with a cast iron pan for smoker chips.

I just bought a Char-broil,BBQ&Gril..I need to know when smokeing where do I put the meat and do I put charcoal in the fire box with the wood chips AND charcoal in the grill side where the meat goes...

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.

Enjoy your smoker and thanks for using FixYa.

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.
Please take time to rate me

Is meat placed in main grill or in attached box

The "offset" box is your firebox. This is where you will put your charcoal. The meat goes in the larger chamber on the grill. This type of cooking is known as indirect cooking where the heat source is not directly under the meat. A grill cooks direct with the heat source coming from charcoal or gas burners located directly under the cook grills. Smoker can really deliver some great tasting food. Be patient and learn the ins and outs of cooking with a smoker. The most important thing is to cook low and slow. try to keep your temps in the cook chamber around 225. I hope this helps.

How much wood do you put in a h20 smoker for ribs

Ah, the age old question. Basically the meat only absorbs the smoke for the first hour to two. This is when the smoke ring is created in the meat. I would use enough soaked wood to keep a slight smoke coming out for the first two hours. After that charcoal is enough in this type of smoker.

You can Google "smoking meat" and find tons of info and forums but be forewarned. You may get hooked in the art of smoking meat.

Do not have the manual for my smoker

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 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.

Char-broil water smoker

first, a charcoal fire in bottom tray, then a pan filled with hot (boiled) water above it, then the meat on top tray, then keep lid on a long time (hours) without peeking and remember to keep charcoal topped off. you should also soak hardwood hickory sticks in water for a day or 2 and wrap in aluminum foil with small holes punched through and place on top of charcoal to provide smoke. usually a large chicken is done in about 4 hours.
