Hi, my name is Kyle and I live up in Kenosha WI. I just bought myself a smoker about a month ago and with the cold weather up here I've only had one chance to use it. I smoked my first rack of ribs and man they were good. I'm going to try my hand at a couple whole chickens tomorrow (they're brining right now). I bought a Brinkman electric water smoker. I know I took the easy way out with electric but I'm learning and hope to move up and on. I have one quick question though. Can you use a smoke box on an electric smoker? If so do I just set it on the coil? I'd like to use some fruity woods but I can only get them in chips and I don't know if it's the best to spread them amongst the coil. Thanks for the help. It's greatly appreciated.
