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.

Did my first Boston Butt on my birthday present ( http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=165.msg194561#msg194561 ) this weekend and wow, just wow!  Took forever but the taste was something else.
