as others have said every hour or add more ships into the loader.
Hi there and welcome!Very interesting, everybody is recommending this. So do I simply load the pellets in this little tray and set it in the smoker? should I just set it on the lowest rack or try to get it by the heating element or what?
I have the Masterbuilt Smoker Kit and smoke with chips or pellets 6 to 8 hrs.Howdy folks, I'm a college student and recently began to try my hand at smoking. I've been lurking here for a couple months to learn some stuff and finally created an account to join the fun, so I hope I'm doing this right.
I bought a Masterbuilt 130B Digital Electric Smoker. I know, I know, it's not true smoking, but it's the best this college kid can do for now. When I fire it up, it produces a good amount of smoke for about 2 hours, and then it just stops producing smoke. I've used apple, hickory, and mesquite wood chips, all go the same. I always keep a pan of water, or the brine in their with the meat. Could that be preventing it from creating smoke and if so, how do I find that balance so it will smoke by taking out the pan without drying out the meat?
Any tips and suggestions are welcome!
