Hi everyone! My name is Scott and I live in Linville, NC. I have been grilling and smoking for about 30 years. I have a Brinkmann Smoke 'N Pit Pro that I bought in 1994. (When they were made to last.) I just finished major mods on it. I had a new door made from 3/16" steel (made 1/2" oversize the original to better enclose the fire box.I also made a charcoal basket and 3/16" Baffle and tuning plates. Installed stove gasket to firebox lid and cooking chamber lid. Did a test burn yesterday and the temp was about 25 degrees difference from the firebox to end of cooking chamber. Before mods I was constantly adjusting vents to maintain desired temp. Now just set vent and forget. I also have a Brinkmann Charcoal Grill and a Weber Genisis 310.

Hey Scott welcome! we found this site around the same time, its kinda cool to be somewhere that everyone understands what we do!! I have been a backyard fanatic for 20 years and am going to first comp in 2 weeks a little nervous but hey jump in with both feet. I cook on a custom reverse flow smoker on trailer and the old stand by Weber kettle. :thumb: Oh yeah my name is Billy Martin (no joke) and I live in NE Oklahoma
