    I am new to this but have char broil electric smoker and have had issues. Do you need to have themometer that is used to see temp of meat inside while cooking even if cooking by temp or time. Had issues of no heat or smoke when thermostat left outside smoker. I hope it is simple user error cause I love smoked meats.

    I found this on one of the manuals;
     
    From what I can gather, if you choose not to use the meat probe, it must be unplugged from the unit and you need to set your Temp and cook time on your controls for the unit to turn on.
