Nampa, Idaho newbie Brinkman Gourmet Electric smoker

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Howdy fellow Smoker. I hail from Nampa, Idaho and I'm sure you saw on the news how much we love smoking- the entire state is on fire!

Picked up a $10 Brinkmann Gourmet Electric Smoker on Craigslist and recently smoked my first chicken breast. Flame ups aplenty, chicken didnt finish cooking and I went to bed at 1am! It was awesome. My hands smelled like smoke all day.

I know my smoker is not a very good one, but I'm not picky. I homebrew and my dream is to get this down where I can have a consistent experience.

I'm brining a small chicken now (half/half salt and brown sugar) and will let you know how it goes!

welcome1.gifto SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 


We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.


If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!


If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
