How does it work?

If you’re struggling with buying a smoker, but you don’t really know how it works – this tutorial is definitely one you don’t want to miss.

Don’t be afraid, it’s much easier than it looks like.

How does it work? 1
Filling up the smoke generator

The first step is to fill up the smoke generator with wooden chips. These are made from deciduous trees and usually have a size between few mm and few cm. When buying one of our smokers you’ll already receive a bag of wooden chips so you can start your smoking adventure right away.

Since the smoke generator is loaded you’re ready to start the smoking process. For this the chips have to be set alight. That can be achieved by closing the lid and switching on the power of the smoke generator. Within 15 minutes (usually ca. 10 min) the chips will catch fire and start to produce smoke which will be sucked into the smoking chamber. At that point you can already switch off the power of the generator – the process will be self-sustainable until all chips will be used up.

A slider allows an easy smoke control (by controlling the air intake and pressure). Once set the smoke generator will be delivering the demanded amount of smoke to the smoking chamber. The burnt chips will fall to the container below.

The temperature within the smoking chamber can be set by a mechanical regulator which is completely independent from the smoke amount. With a slider in the chimney the amount of smoke in the smoke chamber can be controlled.

One full fill of wooden chips allows to maintain the process for 4-6 hours, depending on the chips, weather conditions or smoke amount.
