my husband and i are about to smoke chicken wings using our Brinkmann Vertical Gas Smoker for the first time. We are worried because when we seasoned the smoker we couldn't get it to produce smoke.
Here is exactly what we did:
Soaked 4 cups of Charbroil brand wood chips in water for 30 mins and put them in the top pan
lined the bottom pan with foil and filled it with water and juice
turned it up to 180 degrees per the the instructions and let it burn for 1 hour.
towards the end of that hour there was just no smoke so we turned it up to see if we could get the wood chips going. We weren't able to get them smoking.
Is that normal? Did we do something wrong?
Today we are going to smoke chicken wings, any suggestions you have will be a great help
