"Ever wondered how BBQ Smokers work?"

Consisting of two separate chambers - One for the heat source and the other chamber for cooking.

The heat source chamber has an air opening which lets cool air in. The air then travels through, where it gets heated and flows through to the cooking chamber. (how does it flow through?)

The air is transported through the chambers by a wheel inlet or fan. (Great!)

Wood pellets should be placed with the charcoal briquettes in the charcoal smokers heat chamber. Wood pellets create additional smoke for the smoking process.

The lid needs to be kept on the grill while cooking as you need the hot air to stay in the cooking chamber. (it's a smoker not a BBQ!)

"Do you know how to use a Smoker Grill Efficiently?"

I always found that the wood chips I placed with my charcoal burnt out way too quickly.

So...I found that by soaking the wood chips in water made them burn for longer and produce more smoke!

The dampness makes the wood smoulder rather then just burn.

How you do it? the wood chips in a bowl with water and let them soak for a bit. (a good 10 minutes!)

When smoking you need to keep it at a constant temperature, the smoker takes a while to build up heat.

Now that you waited so long for the heat to build up, avoid opening the lid too many times!

The heat won't build up like you want it you will be smoking forever! Keep topping up your charcoal and wood pellets to keep a constant heat.

I found that every two hours I needed to top up with about 20 briquettes and add a hand full of wood chips to keep my desired heat!
