Hi all, newbie here, both to the forum and to smoking. I fish (maybe too much) and therefore wanted a way to smoke some of my catch (bluefin tuna, bluefish, mackerel, etc.) as well as various meets. A friend of my uncle was going to throw out this Brinkmann Smoke N' Pit. It was well used but I was confident I could resurrect it. I took it home and did some various mods to it based on the DIY stuff I found on this forum and others. I don't have access to a sheet metal bender or fancy tools, so I did it with what I had on the work bench and what was available at Home Depot or the local auto parts store.
Propane kit installed. Bayou Classic 0-10 PSI Adjustable (From Amazon)
That's it for now. I'll get the dual thermometers installed today. Not pictured is an oven broiler plate that i converted into my tuning plate past the baffle. On my test run with fire, it worked great. Temperatures hit 300 degrees when I wanted them to so I'm confident I can get this thing at a steady temp for extended periods of time, especially with the propane.
