How to Use a Charbroil Electric Smoker


Your Charbroil Electric Smoker is a great tool for making smoked foods with a variety of flavors. You should always use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of your food, as often smoked foods look different on the outside than in other methods of cooking. Try adding different juices or using different wood chips to create flavorful dishes. Before using your Charbroil Electric Smoker, read all safety information to prevent injury or a fire.

Things You'll Need

  • Water, juice or other liquid Wood chips Nonstick vegetable oil spray
  • Soak wood chips in water or other liquid for 2 hours.

  • Use the nonstick vegetable oil spray to coat the inside lid and body. Fill the water pan two-thirds full with hot water or other liquid. Add 1 1/2 cups wood chips to the reflector plate.

  • Make sure the controller knob is turned to "OFF" before you plug in your smoker. Put the smoker on a flat, level heatproof surface and plug it in. Turn the controller all the way to "High."

  • Add your food. Estimate that it will take four times longer to cook a food than with another cooking method. Monitor the temperature of the smoker to make sure it is around 250 degrees F. Add more water or wood chips as necessary, unplugging the unit before the addition of water.

  • Check the internal temperature of your food. When it has reached the required heat for safe consumption as marked on your meat thermometer, remove it.

Tips & Warnings

  • A sizzling noise indicates more water is required.
  • Read all safety instructions (see Resources below) before you operate your Charbroil Electric Smoker. Do not use spray vegetable oil near an open flame.
