How to Use a Smoker Grill?

Smoker Grill Combo Buyers’ Guide

How to use a smoker grill?

When you have your meat and it is ready to cook, start by lighting charcoal in a chimney start for about 15 minutes, or until it starts to ash over. Open the intake baffle (near the firebox) and the chimney baffle (near the chimney) filly and add in the fuel. Dump all the coals into the firebox and wait for the smoker grill to reach your desired temperature. Make sure the smoker and firebox doors are closed as much as possible because opening it will cause heat to escape. Once the temperature indicator reads your desired temperature, place the meat on the smoker and close the door. Now, the only thing that’s left is to adjust the intake baffle in order to control the heat. Let the meat cook and remove once you think it is ready.

How to set up a smoker?

A smoker usually comes in three sections. The bottom section is where the unlit charcoal is located up to half of the ring inside. Pour your lit charcoal on top of the unlit charcoal. The second section holds the water pan and the cooking racks. Place the second section on top of the first section with the lit charcoal. Remove the racks and fill the water pan partially with water and place the racks back. Then place the lid onto the whole device. The vent is located on the lid, which will help you control the temperature by opening and closing it. There are two other vents that should remain closed for the entire cooking process. The door on the smoker can be used to add wood for more flavor.
