TARR smokers FAQ
This is not a fault, but because the wick which soaks up the oil has dried out or this is common with new units. Simple put finger on the fan to stop it spinning for 1-2 minutes, in this time the heater will get hot and start to draw the oil up through the wick to the heater to smoke. Reason to stop fan is it allows the heater to get hotter and speed up the process. Once the wick is soaked with oil it is fine and doesn’t need doing again unless the unit runs dry.
What oil and how much
Various oils can be used, but please consider that non-commercial smoke oil maybe toxic and not suitable for use indoors.
The supplier recommends Megasteam, available from us or RCTE for UK customers, which works great in the smokers. With the Megasteam the bottle comes with a pipette lid, half to full a pipette is enough and should last 20-60 minutes, depending on use
