Brinkmann 810-5301-C Smoke-N-Grill Charcoal Smoker and Grill

Great little smoker

TexasD

Pros: Easy to assemble, cooks great brisket

Cons: wind sensitive

I have been using one of these for over 25 years. It is my go to smoker for many occasions. I learned a long time ago that the wind plays into cooking with any outdoor cooker. The area of Texas where I live seems to have wind almost constantly and when it gets to about 15-20 mph it would suck the heat and smoke out the bottom of this smoker. I acquired a 55 gallon drum and cut it right at one...

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

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

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

“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

“ I got excited when I saw this pop-up in the newsletter thinking maybe it was back on the market, but when I looked online Brinkman still shows it as no longer available.  It's basically the same smoker sold under the New Braunfel's and CharBroil names... I bought mine about 9 years ago at Home Depot.    I use it several times a year for ribs, pork roasts, pulled pork,...” --sskyking

Char-Broil 06701289 Charcoal Water Smoker

“This was my first smoker and I used it over 15 times.  Smoked lots of different types of meat and fish.  Worked pretty good.  Always a hassle dealing with top loading smokers because of the heat and smoke in your face when checking meat.  Produces plenty of heat if needed.  Lid was sometimes a beotch to close and pull open.  Lasted several years and eventually sold...” --Gumbo2go
