Ok so i got a Char-broil Silver Smoker for christmas and i have never used a charcoal grill much less a smoker before. I have a Brinkman electric Smoker and my wife thought I would like this one. What should I do or more importantly not do in using this for the first time? I have read the forums about some mods to other brand models but do I need to do any before I use it? Does it need to be cured. Also My uncle uses a electric burner to start his charcoal, What's best for starting Charcoal I know not to use lighter fluid SO?Any help would be appreciated Thanks in advance.
