Brinkmann conversion upgrade

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've got a side smoker Brinkmann. It was great in the past but it could be better. The fuel chamber leaks so I need to seal it. I want to make this a reverse air flow. The vent will be tubbed and the door will probably get an L channel, insulation to prevent leaks. I have studied other mods and looked at what others have done but they seem to be lacking. I would like to do this right and was wondering if there was a cfm calculation or conversion to make this mod great. Post any links you may have please!

Someone will be along with better/more info then I can give. I am going to suggest in the mean time use the search bar at the top of the page. You'll find all kinds of info that way. Hope I was at lest a tad bit of help.

I'm sorry but I don't think you understand what I'm trying to say is I've already done that and I'm looking for more help.

Can you post a picture of what you have? That might help illustrate what it is that you want to accomplish.

That's a good place to start. I converted a Char-Griller (similar) to a RF smoker without too much trouble. Yours has a better lid design.

Start by using this calculator to answer your airflow concerns.
