My cadac is burning black smoke
Check the venturi tube just behind the control knob and before the burner tube. You will probably find it full of spiders nests. You need to introduce air to the gas and that is where it is regulated.

No gas comming through burner
probably the nozzle inside the burner must be clogged,usually you can remove the nozzle from the burner to pierce with a thin stoker, but sometimes it is a very thin hole and then take a van lighter gas and put the valve in the hole and press opposite the gas can in order those with full pressure any dirt opposite syringe out, sometimes want to work well, but a set of piercing needles is the good way. there is often at the beginning of the hose a pressure regulator with a button that you press before the regulator comes into force

Does it matter what shelve you smoke food on?
sure does , it more matters what food goes on what shelf , if you smoke meat and its cut about 3/8 thickly then you use a higher shelf, but if u smoke meat and its whole (takes a long time that way) then use the lower racks , it will be harder for the smoke flavor to penetrate inside the thicker meats , same goes 4 fish , thinner cuts top shelf , thicker cuts bottom shelf (unless you only want the smoke flavor on the crust ) then do just the opposite then

Why after five minutes or so of becoming hot does the grill trip my power
When you say power I am guessing you mean the ground fault switch. Struggled with that myself until recently. There are a lot of posts out there of people with this problem with a variety of smokers. Try plugging into an outlet not protected by a ground fault outlet. If the smoker works that way (mine did) I would suggest you replace the electric heating element. For $30 bucks or so this fixed my smoker. Found my part on appliancefactoryparts.com. My smoke is a Masterbuilt brand. Putting the new element in was pretty easy but a bit messy. Look for a video on YouTube for your smoker.
Good luck and happy smoking.
