FAQ Subject: Instructions for using a Char-Broil water smoker
cool web site!!!
i have just gotten a char-broil h20 smoker, i'm glad it was a gift and not a purchase 'cause it doesn't sound as if you care for 'em much! but, i received no instructions, what-so-ever!!! i have no idea where to to put the wood, charcoal, water, the temp, etc... where can i find this info and where can i find your glossary that i keep seeing you refer to in your answers to others? please don't tell me to contact char-broil, their site isn't up yet and we just caught some beautiful trout that i would like to smoke, now! it doesn't seem to be in this link that i am connected to. thanks for your help and i've already added this address to my "favorite" easy access list!
Congratulations on catching the trout and condolences on collecting a CharBroil. Click into "According to Smoky" from www.barbecuen.com and it will take you to a list of articles, one of which is the "Glossary."
Charcoal goes in the bottom pan. Take the water pan out and use it to burn charcoal/wood down for replenishing. Get yourself a decent thermometer. I recommend the digital readout with remote probe because you can lay the probe on the fish/meat in the beginning to determine the cooking temp. and later insert the probe into the meat to determine the internal temp. Click into The Barbecue Store and take a look.
Click into the FAQs and read the ones on smoking salmon and mullet. I would think that you would want to hot smoke the trout.
