My two cents (unasked for, I know)...wood chunks are MUCH better than chips. Chips do nothing more than burn up too quickly without producing the long-term smoking for the flavor wanted.

You're going to use Hickory, right? Lowe's, Home Depot, and several other places carry Hickory chunks versus chips. Does that make sense now?

No problem. I LOVE to smoke. My wood chunks/coals were still pretty hot at the end of my smoking process so I added some slices of sourdough bread............OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It takes awhile but let me tell you, they were awesome. I then took a few slices and topped with havarti and stuck them on my grill, closed the lid and let the cheese melt. Again, OMG!!!!

Throw in a couple tomato halves and then make some salsa from them. Just let them smoke away and take them out before they completely dry up

When I can finally start the smoker in the summer time, Can I put it on a patio type deck? The smoker is small enough it would be out of the way?


It's only 30 inches high.

I use my electric smoker on our upper level wooden deck with solid overhead roof. No problem.

Don't make a habit of BBQing inside a garage..Over time the Smoke (dirt) will settle on the ceiling/walls etc. creating a stain that is tough to clean...

Enjoy your new cooker!
