How to make this smoker useable

mwolf1

Pros: Everything there to modify, rack space

Cons: Bad engineering

This smoker really does suck... that having been said, the basics are all there for you to make it useful.  As you will find out, if you use it in it's recommended configuration, you will find it very difficult to get this baby up to 200 degrees F.  The good thing is that you can pick them up used on craigslist for a steal! SO, you must rearrange it a bit to make it useable. ...

Brinkmann 810-5301-6 Smoke'N Grill Charcoal Smoker and Grill, Black

“I received this smoker as a gift form my mother in law (bless her). The lid doesn't fit properly so all the smoke and heat comes out of it. It doesn't come with a good thermostat reading, it just says warm, ideal and hot. It is hard work to get the temp up to a good heat. She gave me this to learn to smoke but it is hard to use for a beginner.  ” --senorkevin

“I have had this smoker for a year and a half and I love it.  I did the "day-tripper" mods before i ever fired it up and it has been the most easy-to-use smoker ever.  I know what to expect every time I use it.  My results are dependable and consistent.  I would certainly buy this unit again and recommend it to friends; as long as they raise the charcoal grate, add a damper...” --chilbolt

Weber 711001 Smokey Mountain Cooker Smoker, 14.5-Inch

“I currently have a New Braunfels offset, a Weber WSM 22.5 and I built a mini WSM from a Smokey Joe Gold. When I heard this was coming out I knew I had to have one!    I got one of the first ones the BBQ Barn in Arlington MA got in. It was easy to put together. I tied the charcoal ring to the grate to make it easy to shake out the ash and save the remaining coals.   My first...” --Ben Cartwright2

Weber 731001 Smokey Mountain Cooker 22.5-Inch Smoker

“Had a Char-Griller offset for a year, then got the WSM 22.5". It was almost criminal how much easier this thing is to use. I ran a 14 hr. brisket, plus additional 2 hrs. of burnt ends, and I still had 1/4-1/3 of my charcoal left!   This somoker is such a joy to use that you will find yourself making excuses to find reasons to fire it up...heh-heh. ” --JIRodriguez

“This is actually a review of the previous model (no built-in thermometer, etc.).    What can I say that hasn't already been said about the venerable WSM?  It's priced like an entry level smoker but performs with the best of them.  At some point I'll adopt more modern technology (Traeger wood pellets?) or a larger smoker (Old Country?) but for feeding 8-12 friends efficiently, the WSM is hard to...” --HudL

“After some modifications to the smoker, it works great. Put new temp gauge in the lid and put one in the door. Plus, because it uses a lot of charcoal, also modified the charcoal pan by installing 4 bolts about an inch up and setting a 13" grate on top. That way ashes did not smother the coals and you can use less. Although you have to monitor this smoker the end result is fantastic BBQ!  Have...” --KC1982
