    Plug it in about 30 minutes before you throw the meat on. After about 20 minutes, add your chunk of wood and let the thin blue smoke start to build. In another 10 minutes you will have a hot smoker and that distinct smell that can only come from smoking!

    Good luck and be sure to post pics of your first smoke!

    I have a brinkman and I also plug it in and get it up to heat.I use a electric therm with two corks on it and place it on the grill.I also bring my meat to room temp before putting it in the smoker.I use a second therm for the meat to watch the temp of the meat so I know when it is at the right temp to take it out. Post pics of your smokes
    Good Luck and Good Smoking
