I need instructions for a viking gas grill...I have the smoker insert and need to know how to use the grill to smoke a round roast or tenderloin.

In order to use the smoker box, remove the last set of porcelain grids and flavor generator plate on the right hand side of the grill. Set the smoker box in theopening so that the front and rear tabs rest on the grill frame.

Always soak the chips in water prior to putting them into the box. Use the "HIGH" position to start the chips smoking, then reduce the heat to a lower level to prevent them from drying out and flaming. If the wood chips do flame up, add a small amount of water to extinguish the flame. Use
caution when adding water to a hot box to avoid steam burns. This tray may also be filled with water to produce steam.

Whether smoking or steaming, the grill should remain closed as much as possible to maximize the effect. During extended roasting periods, it is normal to add fresh wood chips and water to the box several times. Limit the amount of times the canopy is opened-each peek adds about 15 minutes to the cooking time.

Wait until Smoker Box totally cools before trying to remove it.

Enjoy you roast or tenderloin!

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

This link should help you get a new set of operation manuals.

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!

Frustrated-please help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The problem is that you are not getting enough air into the smoker. What you need to do is drill some holes along the bottom of the smoker to let more air in. This is a notorious problem with that smoker
