I have a masterbilt electric smoker and my wife tells me it has too much smoke taste to it. What am I doing wrong? The instructions say not to soak the wood chips.
Have you considered trying different types of hardwood for your smoking? Some people dislike the flavors of particular hardwoods (e.g. I'm not a big fan of mesquite, but I think that cherry, oak, and hickory are delicious).
Also, consider this: What are you smoking? In this case, size matters. Depending on how large the portions you're smoking are, you may be able to reduce smoking time.
