A bought a used smoker from a guy and we have tried smoking on it but it just doesn't seem to give the meat much smoke flavor. It has an electric stove top element that creates the heat to start smoking the chips or dust for cold smoking. It also has an oven element that creates heat for hot smoking. In the smoke generator there is a fan on top that blows the smoke from the generator to the smoke house. I believe that the fan is to powerful and blows the smoke in to hard to let the smoke penetrate the meat. I will be at the smoker on Monday to update this with better pics and maybe if I can post it a video showing the air flow that it puts out.
