Greetings fellow carnivours...
I'm a good cook, but new to smoking meat.
I've purchase a Brinkmann Gormet Electric Smoker... $60. I'm very disapointed with the 12lb turkey I tried to cook. It was done outside but only about 150 degrees inside after almost 12 hrs in the smoker. I'm thinkin' the following might be what went wrong.
To many lava rocks.
Didn't soak the wood enough.
Put cold water in pan to many times.
The lid doesn't look all that airtight,,, 3/8" gap around it.
It was a bit windy.
There's no thermometer.
Buying a brinkman electric smoker was a $60 mistake.
If I'm close to the mark with any of these, please let me know.
If anyone has experiance using one of these, and can give me some tips or direct me to a good site that would be great.
