New Smoker

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello All,


I have never smoked meat or anything before. I have a new meco electric water smoker and a couple of questions.


1.. Would it be ok to use a few bbq coals next to the element to help incress the temp and use a few wood chips?


2..I have the RediCheck wireless thermometer set to help me with temp control.


3..What would be a good meat to use for a first time smoke?

I'd start with a beer can chicken. 


Their cheap & easy.


I'm not familiar with your smoker, but normally you would not want to put charcoal next to the element in an electric smoker.

Welcome. I would not put anything on the elements. There's going to be kick back heat

and your element will suffer early demise. I'm not familiar with your smoker so I can't give

good advice on increasing the heat.


Play around with it till you see what works and what doesn't. You'll lose some food and

some will taste great...that's smoking.


Good Luck...James
