Hello, this is Chef Robert with Alto-Shaam and today we are going to learn how to operate the standard control Alto-Shaam Cook and Hold Smoker. All right, we’ll start with a brief overview of the controls. Here’s the power switch, we have the timer, the holding thermostat, cooking thermostat, and the smoke timer. This is a one hour timer, so when we’re setting it we have fifteen minutes, thirty minutes, forty-five minutes, and one hour. To set the oven for preheating we’ll turn the power switch on and we’ll set the holding thermostat. The thermostats will turn either direction, so we’re going to set this one 165 degrees. The cooking thermostat also will turn both directions and we’ll set this one for 250 degrees. Later we’ll come back and set the smoke timer. Now to activate the preheat we push the timer button and we can start to use the up and down arrows to set the time we want to cook for. The oven will take about thirty minutes to preheat. While the ovens preheating we’re going to take our wood chips and soak them in water here, and then these wet wood chips will actually go right into the smoke box. Now the wood chip box goes right in to the back of the oven. Now that the wood chips are in and we have loaded our food, we just have to adjust the control to the cooking time, so I can use the up or down arrows, and then we can take the smoke timer and set it for the required amount of smoke. We’ll turn past the time we want and turn it back so for thirty minutes, that’s where we need. The unit is now cooking and smoking. Now that we have finished cooking, we have taken the food out, we have removed the shelving, and cleaned the inside of the oven, and all we have to do is turn the power switch off. All right, well now that we have cooked in this oven the next time we need to operate it we just need to turn the power switch on. If we have not changed the holding thermostat and cooking thermostat, it’s going to remember where we had those last time but I can still adjust them if needed. And then we’re going to activate our timer and we can put our oven in preheat mode for the next cook cycle.
