Smoke the right way

Instructions for the Digital Smoker


  When smoking meat in an electric smoker, the core temperature is more important than the cooking time. This is the only way to ensure that your chicken is really cooked. Still, it’s good to know when you have to heat the smoker so that dinner is ready in time. After all, you don’t want to be eating in the middle of the night because you started the smoker too late. The times specified are estimates intended to make planning easier for you. You now know approximately when you should switch on your smoker and when the meat will be cooked. Times may vary depending on the weather and other factors.
