So I got the above mentioned smoker last night and seasoned it per instructions. Tonight I decided to fire it up again to get a handle on dial positions giving what approximate temps inside and what I need to do to get it making smoke, how fast it produces smoke, etc. I want to be able to use it successfully this weekend.
The manual says nothing that I saw about how long to soak wood chips or if to soak them at all.
Today I tried dry and some chips that were in a quick soak. It makes smoke but not the amounts that I am used to seeing with my coal smoker.
Since I have no other electric experience to compare this too:
1. is it possible to get that billowing "OMG the neighborhood is burning down" smoke coming from it?
2. is it even necessary to have that much smoke?
I've seen some tips and tricks on getting these things working well and did try the chunk of coal tip to keep the chips smouldering.
Anything else I should try this weekend when I put some meat in it?
Thanks in advance
