Default Brinkman Vertical Smoker

Well, I just bought my first Vertical Smoker. I was walking through Wal-mart to see if I could find any Weber Grills on sale since they were making room for Halloween stuff. I did not find a Weber but I did find a Brinkman Vert. Smoker usually 97.00 marked down to 37.00. I figured for Thirty Seven bucks I could not go wrong, and it was ANOTHER SMOKER!!!!! One cannot have to many smokers!!!

Does anyone have one and how do you like it???? Any input on the best things and ways to use it...........................or have I just wasted 37.00 dollars????

Did you pawn your camera to pay for the new smoker?

Is it the Box type charcoal model? Those are nice little smokers. Lot like a GOSM. For that price you did well. I need to see waht my local WM is selling. I'd like one of those.

It's not your equipment, it's your skill that counts.
Great score!

is it the single door or 2 door box smoker? i have both & like them both. i don't care for the way the rack holders are made for the 2 door but thats life-for the price. be sure to get you a grill basket for a firebasket otherwise you will never get a fire going.here's a pic to show you what i mean.just set it on the bowl that came w/ your smoker to catch the ashes & never let your waterpan go dry.


a better pic

First, if you can return it, run as fast as you can and do so. Then, build yourself an Ugly Drum Smoker (UDS).

If not, you will need to modify (mod) it to do anything worth while:

$37 is regular price for theECB. You got no deal.

OH WELL, it is more than 37 dollars on the web as well. No matter either way, I will do something with it. I THANK THOSE FOR THE CONSTRUCTIVE INFORMATION.

You should look at the posts by Deathamphetamine (for the record, long handles are a pain) and see what he has done. He has determined that despite everyone's naysaying, he is going to make it work. I think $37 is not a bad price, then again, I do not shop at Walmart unless I have no choice.

You need to do the mods which will help a lot. I have a Meco that is the same design (open bottom) and I turned out some mean ribs last week. Make sure to mod and vent the charcoal pan and vent the lid. Once you can control air flow then you're 99% done.
