Brinkmann Electric Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

new guy here (both to the forum and smoking in general).  I recently picked up a new to me Brinkmann Electric.  Its missing the lava rocks out of the bottom but otherwise in really good shape; it has a new heating element and grills are fairly clean along with the inside.

 

My question was one of wondering if I could use charcoal along with whatever lava rocks and stuff got stuffed into the bottom of the smoker ?  is there any reason why I couldn't add some charcoal lump in with the lava rocks?  Im just working out on how to get some more flavour and such along with whatever wood I choose to put in.

 

Anyway - thanks in advance for your advice and information.

To answer your question, I don't think it would hurt but not sure.   The smokiness we all like comes from the wood. Here is a link to the manual for the Brinkmann Electric Smoker. Although I am not sure if it is for the one you have,  I hope it helps.
