First smoke in a cheap $10 Brinkmann Gourmet Electric Smoker. Process: Since I didn't soak the chips, I had several flame-ups. I don't know how Brinkmann expects people to keep wood chips from touching the heating element. I had to keep opening the door to spray water on the chips. In the future, I think I'll try a skillet or something on top of the element, even though I'm not supposed to. Chicken: Jamaican Jerk BBQ, Garlic Power, EVOO, sea salt. I could have put a lot more on. I didn't re-apply. Result: Not fully cooked all the way, because I kept having drops in temp. I think I may finish in the oven next time. Next steps: Brine the chicken beforehand, soak the chips and use more chunks so they last longer. Maybe I'll use something other than water in the tray?
