    I'm having the same problem. I've done 3 beef briskets, the temperature reading says 220 but after 7 hours, my 5 pound brisket was only at 130/internal temp. At the moment, I've had a whole chicken in the smoker - it's been over 3 hours and the internal temp is only 135 !!! I've tried two different BBQ thermometers - could they both be wrong ? What's going on - HELP !!!

What you need to do is start a fire in the small side and have all your vents fully open. When the temp gauge gets between 150 and 250 you can add the type of meat you are going to smoke. You can add wood chips every hour to get that smoky flavor into your meat. You must maintain a low temp in order to get the best results. I usually smoke at 200 degrees from 5 to 12 hours long depending on what type of meat you are smoking. You must control the heat with the vents on the fire box side and also the exhaust where the smoke comes out. It takes a little practice but it is well worth it. You can also go to and they have a whole bunch of tips on how to use different types of smokers, rubs, sauces, meats and so forth. Good Luck and happy smoking

How do I get onto craiglist for the first time?

1. You must be of legal adult age. Even adults have become victims of criminals using CraigsList.

2. Scroll down to the geographic nation, state, and city nearest to you and click that link for free classifieds.

NOTES: Do not meet strangers from Craigslist ads unless you are an adult age 21 or more; you can verify who they are; and, you meet them in a well lighted public facility in daylight. For example, if they will not meet you in front of the local police station, just say NO!

NEVER send money to strangers you meet online. Check and for scam reports on Craigs List. craigslist sites

WARNING: 2d year med student, Philip Markoff, was charged w/ murdering victims he seduced through CraigsList ads; he was allegedly beginning a serial killing spree. Others have been victimized through criminals using CraigsList. IF YOU ARE UNDER AGE 21 OR NAIVE, CONSULT W/ YOUR TEACHER, MENTOR, OR PARENT AND DO NOT USE CRAIGSLIST.

Photos on craigslist

One of the useful features of Craigslist is that they allow you to upload up to eight digital photos to most classified ads for free.

Conveniently, they also allow the use of HTML code in the ad descriptions, which makes it possible for you to include an unlimited amount of photos hosted on external sites.

If you use the built-in upload tool, Craigslist will automatically resize the images for you.
If you host them on an external site, you will need to resize them yourself.

The resizing can be accomplished using HTML code.
Visit the Craigslist Web site and click the "post to classifieds" link Below.

Follow the prompts and enter in a title and description for your ad.
Click the "Add images" link when prompted if you want to upload some images with Craigslist's built-in uploading tool.

These will be automatically resized for you.
Continue reading if you want to add and resize your own images.

Go to your image host, such as Photobucket, ImageShack or Flickr, in a new browser window or tab and open the album containing the images you'd like to use.
Click or right-click on the images one at a time and choose the option (if necessary) to view the direct Web addresses for them.

This address is what you'll link to in the Craigslist ad. Type the following HTML code into the ad's Description box (a few lines below the text description you already typed in):
<img src="" height="" width="" />

Inside the "src" quotes, copy and paste the Web address for the first image you'd like to add to your ad.

Inside the "height" and "width" quotes, type in the height and width (in pixels) you'd like to resize it to.

For example:
<img src="" height="200" width="300" />

Repeat the previous step for any additional images you'd like to add to your Craigslist ad.
When done, follow the prompts on the page to save and post your Craigslist ad. - pictures

Can I use the wood chip pan directly (not the side chute)?

It is a big process it has 7 steps they are as follows
  • 1

    Soak hardwood chips in water for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours for larger chunks. Drain them completely before adding to the smoker unit. Use 1 1/2 cups of wood chips when smoking for less than 3 hours. For longer cooking times use 3 cups of wood.

  • 2

    Place the bottom unit that contains the heating element on a sturdy surface, away from flammable materials. Make a foil pouch containing the wood chips and punch a few holes in the top. Place this pouch onto the pan containing the heating element. The chips can be added directly to the pan, but the foil pouch makes cleanup easier.

  • Place the large water pan onto the unit and fill it 2/3 full of water or apple juice. The water or juice will moderate the temperature and provide moisture for the cooking food.

  • 4

    Add the cooking grates to the top of the unit and close the lid to allow the unit to preheat.

  • 5

    Place the food on the preheated grates and cook until done. Keep the lid closed as much as possible to maintain the heat. Open the vent on the top of the lid to allow the smoke to escape.

  • 6

    Check the water level occasionally by opening the door on the side of the Charbroil Electric Smoker unit. Add more water as needed.

  • 7

    Add more soaked wood chips after a few hours if the smoke begins to die away. This is optional; the chips provide flavor but are not necessary for cooking the meat.

    The users manual arrived with the product but there are no user instructions and aswell as direct grilling I want to use the grill to cook joints etc. What setting do you use for indirect grilling and Is...

    Direct Grilling is putting the items you're grilling directly over the burner(s) . Indirect Grilling is preheating the grill, turning off one or two burners and place the food over the burners that are OFF. In direct grilling requires cooking with the lid closed.

    My email is [email protected] when I send something though craiagslist it doesn't work. please help Kenny

    This is not a direct answer to your question but I do want to warn you. 98% of everything on CraigsList is some kind of scam. If it is an apartment they are trying to scam you out of a deposit. If it is a personal ad they are trying to scam you out of your email address. About the only legitimate ads on CraigsList are for free kittens. I have responded to a number of ads in the past and have uncovered the scum of the earth. So unless you want a free kitten I suggest you avoid CraigsList at all costs.
