Newbie To Smoking Meats - Elgin, IL

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi all, my name is Zac Anderson - I'm located in the Elgin, IL area and I'm currently enrolled in the local culinary school. I consider myself pretty decent at BBQ'n things but I'm taking the plunge into smoking meats. I was given a new Char-Broil H20 Water Smoker so that's what I have to work with along with two big kettle Weber charcoal grills. I've used the Weber in the 'indirect' method along with a few wood chips to get a tri-trip how I like I'd like to experiment with the smoker I was given.

I understand how to set it up and hopefully maintain a good temp but my main question is this. I'd like to convert it to a electric smoker using the Brinkmann Electric Conversion kit? (

I have a nice cast iron smoker box for the chips and some cherry and other misc. purchased blocks from a retailer a few years back. I think this kit would seem to work for the conversion. Any ideas?

Thanks and glad to be on board...

Hi Zac, welcome to the SMF site. As a culinary school student, you're probably learning the skills to cut your own pieces of meat if bought in bulk. You're knowledge of how tastes blend together should make for some interesting concoctions! Good luck in school, and glad to have you here!
