Upgrading from Vertical to Horizontal Smoker

Discussion in 'Charcoal Smokers' started by jimmismoking, Aug 7, 2011.

  1. My wife started off my smoking career with a small vertical smoker (Forgemaster  Charcoal Smoker) I have to say it was a great smoker and easy to use for a beginner that required 0 mods. However, I have decided I want to move up to Brinkmann 40" Smoke n Pit master. I like the idea of loading a side box vs unlatching and lifting the entire vertical to add more coals etc.

    I have looked over the Pro's and Con's of this smoker and wanted to know what mods are needed/suggested. Also, I read about the ash choking the coals off how can you prevent this?

    There are quite a few guys on here with your smoker & I'm sure one will be along soon to help you.

    While you wait you may want to use the search & type in Brinkmann mods, you should be able to find what you want.
  3. Doing that now thank you
