Brinkman gourmet grill

Posted

Pros: good starter smoker

Cons: needs a lot of modifications to work well

I have used this grill several times during the summer and got very good results.  I made several mods that I found on this website.  1- added a charcoal grate from Weber, 2- added a hole for thermometer, and 3- moved the second grate up higher so I can do 2 items at once.  It took a lot of work to keep temperature.  It seemed it was too high or too low.  Maybe that,s just my inexperience talking.  The brisket and pork butt came out great.  I did use real charcoal pieces, not brickets and chunks of cherry wood instead on chips.  They last longer.
