Just picked up a new to me smoker after searching for almost 2 months. It was perfect timing because the seems on my old brinkman split on Sunday. The smoker was very well kept and was used less than a couple dozen times. Fired it up on the 4th about 30 minutes after I got it on the patio. I smoked 2 drunken chickens, a full rack of spare ribs and a big piece of brisket. Once the smoking was done I moved the leftover coals to the main chamber to grill some teriyaki chicken thighs, pinnacle pork chops, and some bacon wrapped asparagus! The amount of food I can cook at once it's at least 4-5 times more!!
