brinkmann trail master

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

hi im zardrell, and im 16, i want to buy the brinkmann trailmaster smoker but i have one problem with it. i want the side fire box to have a side door similar to the yoder fire box. i dont like the idea of raising the lead of the side fire box and that can also be dangerous due to the law of physics that says heat rises. is there a firebox that is big enough to fit a whole log and have a side and top door??

ive been searching for a while this evening  but no turnouts. please help?? i need your experience and wisdom on building a fire box. and i dont do fire baskets to me they just arent that old school to me.

Welcome to the forums! This is the best place I know for sharing ideas on smoking, grilling, curing, etc. There are plenty of friendly, knowledgeable folks who really enjoy helping one another. Looking forward to your input here, and just ask when you need anything...someone here will surely have the answer.

If I understand correctly what you are asking...every offset pit I ever saw had a door in the side to access the fire and add wood or coals without raising the lid. As far as the door being big enough to get a whole log in there...depends on the size of the pit. Most backyard offset pits are made to burn charcoal or small splits of wood. Bigger, trailer mounted pits could probably accommodate whole logs if that is what is important to you.

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!
