Before first use, cure your smoker to minimize damage to the
exterior finish as well as rid the smoker of paint odor that can
impart unnatural flavors to the first meal prepared.
Remove water pan from smoker and do not use flavoring wood
while curing your smoker.
Coat all interior surfaces of the smoker cabinet, side rack and
cooking grill with vegetable oil or vegetable oil spray.
DO NOT coat the electric element and
Plug the smoker into electric outlet.
Cure smoker for two hours, then unplug smoker from electric
outlet. Allow smoker to cool completely. It is important that the
exterior of the smoker is not scraped or rubbed during the
curing and cooling process.
Cure your smoker before first use. After cleaning,
apply a light coat of vegetable oil or vegetable
cooking spray to the interior surfaces, smoker body,
cooking grids and water pan. This simple process will
help reduce interior rusting. DO NOT apply oil to
electric element or controller.

Open door and remove wire rack that supports the wood chip
pan and water pan.
Remove lid from the wood chip pan and add wood chips. We
recommend the use of wood chips, not wood chunks. Replace
the wood chip pan lid and slide rack into smoker.
Carefully fill water pan with warm water or your choice or
marinade to 1 inch below the rim. Do not fill completely or water
may overflow during use.
DO NOT spill water, marinade or any liquid onto
the electric element and controller.
Remove cooking grids and adjust the wire cooking grid support
brackets to the desired height for the items you are smoking.
Place food on cooking grid(s) in a single layer and leave room
between each piece to allow smoke and moisture to circulate
evenly. Slide cooking grid into the wire cooking grid support
brackets. Repeat steps for each cooking grid that is used.
Close door and plug the smoker into electric outlet.
Always use a 3-wire grounded outlet wired for
120-volts that is GFCI protected at 15 or 20
amps. If you are not sure the outlet is suitable,
contact a qualified electrician. Do not operate
this smoker on the same circuit with any other
appliance or electrical device.
When connecting controller to smoker, plug
electric controller into smoker first, make sure
controller is set to OFF, then plug into outlet.
When unplugging, turn controller to OFF,
disconnect from outlet, then remove controller
Adjust the electric controller to the high position and allow the
smoker to heat up. The desired temperature for smoking is
between 220F and 250F. The heat indicator on the front of the
unit will let you know when the smoker is near the desired
temperature and you can adjust the controller accordingly.
