CAUTION
The smoker becomes HOT during use. Use heat resistant gloves while accessing the inside of the smoker.

Using the Wood Chip Box:
The wood chip box is designed to provide a sustainable amount of smoke and flavor during the cooking process. Fill the box at least 1/2 to 3/4 full with desired wood chips or wood pellets. Anything more or less than this amount may not create the appropriate amount of smoke for adding flavor. Refer to Page 19 for the types of wood chips that are recommended for various foods. To add more wood chips or pellets during the cooking process, unlatch the bottom drawer and slowly pull out the drawer until the wood chip box is accessible. The amount of new wood chips will depend on cooking time and the amount remaining in the wood chip box. Using heat-resistant gloves, place enough wood chips to fill the box 3/4 full. Do not remove the burnt chips or ashes until after the cooking process is complete. Do not over fill the box. Slowly close the drawer and secure with both latches. Do not use wood chunks or charcoal. NOTE: The use of wood chips or wood pellets is not required during the cooking process.
NOTE: Always operate the smoker with the wood chip box in place – regardless of whether or not wood chips are used.
Using the Water Bowl:
The use of water in the bowl is not required, but the water bowl MUST be in place during operation. To use the bowl, fill with NO MORE THAN 24 ounces (710ml) of warm water, before turning on the smoker. Cold water may prolong the cooking process. Do not overfill the water bowl. Doing so may cause the water to splash inside the smoker. IMPORTANT: Always cook with both the water bowl and wood chip box in place, regardless of whether or not they are filled.

CAUTION

  • Do not use sharp or pointed tools to clean smoker.
  • Do not use abrasive oven cleaners, steel wool or metal brushes to clean porcelain grates or smoker body. They will damage the finish.
  • Replace damaged part(s) only with Dyna-Glo certified replacement parts. Do not attempt to repair damaged parts.
  • In order to maintain optimal performance, cleaning the smoker after each use is highly recommended.
  • Wait until the smoker has completely cooled before cleaning.

TIPS ON SMOKING
Pairing wood chips with a specific type of food will depend on the preferences of the user. This page can be used as a general guideline for acquiring the ideal flavor.

  • Hardwoods such has hickory, pecan, apple, cherry or mesquite typically burn slower and produce more smoke over longer periods of time.
  • To prolong the burn cycle for wood chips, pre-soak them in a separate bowl of water for at least 30 minutes, and/or wrap the chips in perforated aluminum foil.
  • Most smoke flavoring occurs within the first hour of cooking. Adding wood chips after the first hour is typically not necessary unless extra smoke flavoring is desired.
    Here’s a list of the most popular smoking woods and a little information about each.
Type of Wood Suggested Food Comments
