I went crazy with the smoker yesterday.  Two chickens, three racks of ribs, two pork shoulders, a rabbit, and some sausages.  All washed down with a bourbon porter.

Lots of left overs.  Gonna do it again next weekend.

We did some ribs as well with a mixture of pecan, apple and cherry.  Daughter made some jicama slaw and corn on the cob.  Washed down with a myriad of homebrewed libations.  A very good day, indeed!

Smoked 4 racks of ribs on Sunday for a combination son's birthday party/reconnect with the neighborhood party.  Use apple and cherry for smoke...I'll have to try the pecan next time.

Brewed a doppelbock yesterday because it finally stopped raining and the wind wasn't blowing 30 mph like it had been for the past 7 days.

Nice Keith!

...didn't know you had a smoker. I had a Brinkmann exactly like yours, then sold it and bought a WSM. Although, I had great results with the Brinkmann.

Fun times!

Do the modifications on the Brinkman for it to work right.

I almost bought a Brinkman but it looked too draughty.

That Brinkman was the first smoker I owned.  It's been almost 10 years, but I still have it.  It's been years since I've used it since I've been using my pit smoker for the past 3 years, yet, there's no way I'm giving it away!

I used to own a Brinkman - got alot of use from it.  I have a New Braunfels 2- chamber style now.  Love it.  Definitely not in Ron's league though.

I'm probably going to get a Komodo this summer. But the brinkman works ok. Just plan about 9+ hours for a pork shoulder. Yer gonna have to build the fire again at least once and that means tearing the whole thing apart. Otherwise u can add coals and wood throughout the day.

You'll be able to do a 24hr+ cook with one load of charcoal in a Komodo if it is anything like an Egg. If you do it right. Might have to give the coals a stir once or twice.
