post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi All I have an Master Forge Electric verical smoker..I've used it a few times with good results.

I'm just wondering IF I placed some pieces (2)of charcaol in smoker would I get the red/pink smoke ring?


Thanks Dan

I was thinking of putting charcoal in my water pan, with my electric elements being used for heat below.  I wonder if that would be a good idea.
