Smoker help needed
I have just bought a Brinkman electric smoker and am currently trying it out for the first time. I am cooking a roasting chicken (about six lbs). I seasoned the chicken and put the soaked wood chips in the base (but not directly on the heating element)and started the chicken cooking over the water pan. Everything worked fine and the thing smoked like crazy. But after an hour it has stopped smoking altogether and I think the wood chips have completely burned out. I thought this would smoke for the whole four hours needed to cook the chicken. Will I need to keep adding the wood chips just to keep it smoking the whole time? Any help would be appreciated.
