OPERATION

BEFORE FIRST USE
Remove all hangings or plastic straps, if present.
Before you cook food in your smoker, it is important to “season” your smoker. Seasoning seals the paint and interior of your smoker to enhance flavoring, durability and overall performance.
To season your smoker, simply use it as you normally would only do not cook any food. You will need to follow all of the operating procedures in the next few sections of this manual.
Using your desired flavoring woods and marinades, burn your smoker at low temperature (around 175°F/79°C) for 45 – 60 minutes. Let the smoker cool, and clean out the water and wood.
Once seasoning is complete, your smoker’s interior will have a durable, seasoned coating.
Adding Water
To add water before cooking, simply remove the water bowl and fill it with water slightly below the rim. Then place the bowl back into the smoker. Enough water before cooking is recommended.
To add water while cooking, if a sizzling sound indicating a lack of water is heard, or really need to add water, open the bottom door with care and avoid taking in the smoke, use a long nose kettlelike water can, stand yourself as far from the smoker as you can, fill the water bowl up to 1 in.

BLAUPUNKT MS46BT Bluetooth CD-MP3 player with FM and USB - icon 3CAUTION: DO NOT pull the water bowl out beyond the rack when the smoker is hot.

Cooking Tip
Line the water bowl with aluminum foil before each use. This will make it easy to clean and help your water bowl last longer.
To make adding water easier and safer, use a clean watering can with a long spout.
Adding Wood Chips
To add wood chips before cooking, simply fill the wood chip box with your choice of flavoring hardwood chips. The amount and type of wood you use is entirely dependent on the desired amount of flavor.
Once the box is filled, place the lid on top of the box and set the box in the smoker.
To add wood chips while cooking, we recommend using tongs or long-handled pliers to remove the box lid and to place the pieces into the wood chip box without removing the box. It is not recommended to remove the wood chip box while the smoker is in operation.
BLAUPUNKT MS46BT Bluetooth CD-MP3 player with FM and USB - icon 3CAUTION: The wood chip box and lid get very hot. Avoid handling them while in use.
Always wear protective oven mitts when handling hot components.
Cooking Tip: Flavoring Wood

  • Small wood chips work best inside the wood chip box.
  • Use dry hardwoods such as hickory, pecan, apple, cherry or mesquite.
  • Most fruit or nut tree woods produce excellent smoke flavoring.
  • Do not use resinous woods such as pine or plywood. These usually produce unpleasant flavoring.
  • Let your taste be your guide. Experiment with different types and quantities of wood chunks, chips, or sticks. You can even mix woods.
  • To produce more smoke and prevent fast burning, pre-soak the wood chips in a separate bowl of water for at least 20 minutes, 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.

TIPS ON SMOKING
Smoking foods is different from grilling foods. Smoking is typically done slowly and at a lower temperature than grilling. The smoke produced by the wood infuses itself into the meat giving it that great smoked flavor. Grilling is a much quicker cooking process using higher temperatures.
Always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for cleaning and care. Monitor your fuel supply, running out of propane halfway through the smoking process isn’t fun. Consider purchasing a spare propane tank as a backup.
Here’s a list of the most popular smoking woods and a little information about each.

Type of Wood Suggested Food Comments
Apple All meats Mild and sweet flavor with a slight hint of fruity flavor. Each
species of Applewood should offer a slightly different
flavor. Apple smoke produces an attractive browning effect.
Almond All meats Produces a sweet smoke with a natural nutty flavor.
Ash Fish and red meat Very light flavor.
Citrus Pork and chicken Lemon and orange wood produce a light but fruity flavor.
Cherry Pork and beef Light and fruity flavor.
Fruitwood Pork. poultry and fish Wood such as Peach. Pear and Plum produce a mild but
sweet smoke with a hint of fruity flavor.
Grapevine Poultry, game, and lamb Grapevine wood produces a lot of smoke. A little wood
goes a long way. It produces a tart flavor that has a hint of
fruit.
Hickory Pork and beef Hickory is arguably the favorite wood for smoking. Hickory
produces a very strong flavor so we recommend starting
slow with this wood.
Maple Pork and poultry Light and sweet
Mesquite Beef, chicken and fish This wood bums very hot so be aware. Much like Hickory.
Mesquite is very popular and produces a strong flavor.
Oak Red meats. game. ribs
and fish
Another wood that produces a heavy smoke. Start slow
with this wood.
Pecan Ribs and red meat Produces a light smoke that offers a sweet and nutty flavor.

SUGGESTED SMOKING AND MEAT TEMPERATURES
Smoking Temperatures
Accurate smoking temperatures are critical for safely cooking food when meat probes are not available. Please understand that using the factory-installed temperature gauge is an acceptable tool for smoking food, but it’s not always the ideal means of measuring the most accurate smoking temperature because internal smoker temperatures can vary between the top and bottom cooking grates. Also, keep in mind that the probes used on most gauges are designed to measure the temperature at the tip of the temperature probe and not the overall temperature of the smoker.
Alternatively, it is recommended that users either purchase an aftermarket, oven-ready temperature gauge or a meat thermometer. Meat thermometers are the most effective way of determining when the food is cooked to the minimum temperature required for safe consumption. Please refer to the chart below for cooking temps.

Dyna Glo DGW1235BDP D Wide Body Vertical Gas Smoker - Match Lighting Procedure

Cooking Tip: Damper Adjustments
BLAUPUNKT MS46BT Bluetooth CD-MP3 player with FM and USB - icon 3WARNING: The dampers on the smoker’s body and the handle on the top damper housing may become very hot while cooking. Always wear a heat-resistant glove when adjusting.

  • For best performance, rotate the smoker before lighting so that the front or back of the body is facing the wind. This allows the adjustment of the dampers to be more effective and accurate.
  • The two dampers on the smoker’s body should never be fully closed.
  • Opening the damper on the smokestack helps to exhaust both the heat and smoke.
  • The key to effective smoking is to watch your heat indicator on the door and adjust the dampers accordingly.
  • Temperature maintenance is best controlled by different damper adjustment configurations.

Turning off the Smoker
CAUTION: The smoker can become very hot while in use.
Do not touch any portion of the smoker except for the door handle and burner control knob.
It may be necessary to use protective gloves.

  1. Turn all the burner control knobs off by pushing in and rotating to “OFF” O. Both burner flames should go out.
  2. Turn off the LP cylinder valve by turning the knob clockwise until it cannot go any farther.
  3. Disconnect gas cylinder when not in use. Hang regulator on lifting handle (B).

  • DO NOT leave hot ashes unattended until the smoker cools completely.
  • The smoker becomes extremely hot – allow the smoker to cool completely before handling. If you must handle the smoker while it is hot, ALWAYS wear protective oven mitts or heat-resistant gloves. Allow the smoker to cool before removing and cleaning the greased pan.
  • Dispose of cold ashes by wrapping them in heavy-duty aluminum foil and putting them in a noncombustible container.
  • If you must dispose of the ashes in less time than it takes for them to completely cool. Remove the ashes from the smoker, keeping them in heavy-duty foil, and soak them completely with water before disposing of them in a noncombustible container.

GENERAL CARE AND MAINTENANCE
BLAUPUNKT MS46BT Bluetooth CD-MP3 player with FM and USB - icon 3CAUTION: All care and maintenance procedures are to be performed while the smoker is turned off and cooled. Always perform maintenance by a qualified service person.
Clean the water bowl and cooking grate with hot, soapy water. Rinse and dry thoroughly. You may prefer to coat the water bowl and cooking grid lightly with cooking oil or cooking spray.
Frequently check and clean the venturi and burner tubes for insects and insect nests. A clogged tube can lead to fire beneath the smoker. Also make sure the smoker does not have any foreign objects obstructing the flow of combustion and ventilation air.
To clean the inside and outside of the smoker cabinet, simply use a damp cloth. Spray-washing with a water hose is not recommended. Moisture should be wiped away and not allowed to stand inside or on top of the smoker. Once cleaned, you may prefer to lightly coat the interior of the smoker cabinet with cooking oil or cooking spray.
If rust is present on the exterior surface of the smoker, clean the area with steel wool or emery cloth and use heavy-duty, heat-resistant paint.
NEVER apply additional paint to the interior of the smoker. If rust is present on the interior of the smoker, clean it thoroughly with steel wool or emery cloth and lightly coat the area with cooking oil or cooking spray to help minimize recurring rust.
When an LP tank is not connected, and to help prevent dirt or other foreign particles from clogging the regulator connector, hang the end of the hose and regulator assembly on the lifting handle (B).
Keep the ventilation opening(s) of the cylinder enclosure free and clear from debris.

Inspect the flames at the burner by looking through the observing hole on the left side of the Burner and control unit “H”. A good flame should be blue with a yellow tip 1 to 2 in. high. If flames are excessively yellow and irregular, oil residue and food deposits may be collected on the burner. Try cleaning the burner surface with hot, soapy water and cleaning the holes with a pipe cleaner to improve the flames.

Bad flames may also be caused by poor venturi attachment to the orifice. Turn off the control knob and cylinder valve, and always let the smoker cool before cleaning or checking the assembly. Make sure the orifice of the control valve properly mates with the burner mixing tube by visual observation from the bottom of the appliance. The burner venturi tube should overlap the orifice and they should form a straight line as shown in Figure A. Figures B & C show incorrect alignment.
