Question about Char-Broil Electric H2O Smoker

1 Answer

Don't know where to put wood chunks in a Char-broil electric h20 smoker!!

I don't know wher to put the wood chunks in my Char-broil H2O electric smoker. I know in other smokers you put the chunks in the charcoal, but that part of the smoker is covered up and they told me at char-broil that you put them in with the water. Is that true? It doesn't seem right!

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.

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!

Cook Times

For the turkey, should be between 20 - 25 minutes per pound. About 20 minutes per pound for the ham, if memory serves. This is after your smoker comes up to temp and you start to see smoke from your smoke chips/chunks.

At about 20 minutes per pound, take the temp of the ham and turkey with a good instant read meat thermometer.

Also, I generally don't use water in the water pan for hams and turkeys, but that is a personal preference. If you put water in your pan, it'll probably take a few more minutes per pound.
