Just finished my first year of competition. Started with the Brinkman and a Traeger Mod 75. Finished the year with three WSMs. Brinkman is inconsistant at best. Traeger can't handle all the shake-rattle-and-roll. The Traeger is back on my deck where it belongs, is used, is loved. The Brinkman is for sale.
