Usage Recommendations

For Smoking – we recommend using non petroleum based starters. Residue in the smoke from these starters can contaminate the cooking box with the potential to effect the flavor of the meat. The use of a torch or paper and kindling is most effective. Use approximately 40 lbs. of charcoal briquettes, or 20 lbs. of lump charcoal in fire box to get started. Once meat is placed in smoker, you can add wood in fire box for smoking. You can continue to use wood or charcoal (your choice). Add wood or charcoal as needed to maintain temperature where you want it. Optional charcoal basket holds approximately 60 lbs. of charcoal briquettes and ensures efficient even temperatures.

For Grilling – remove bottom grate from smoker and slide in optional charcoal pan. Put in your desired amount of charcoal and slide top grate above charcoal pan.
