I found a nice deal on a used smoker. its a Brinkmann Smoke N Smoker. It has been used, but not much. I can get this for $15.00. I've read some posts on them and I had been looking for used ones for parts for my build. This one would buy me some time until I can get the build finished. Any thoughts?
Need some advise on a smoker.

If it's in decent shape and you want it you should just do it! At least you will have something to show for it and you can smoke your own lunch!
Well I picked up my cheap smoker. After going over the thing it basically needs cleaned and one rust spot on the door needs repaired. All the pans were in excellent shape and the grills weren't even rusted. I believe I'll put a vent in the top dome and get some expanded metal to make the charcoal pan hold more. A few mods to the the charcoal pan (vent holes) and maybe try to make the dome seal up a bit better and I should be in business. I've been check out post from other guys and I see what the had to do. I'll post any ideas I come up with.
I've been kind of busy since I got my ECB smoker so its been a while since I've posted anything. I'm doing some modifications to it such as adding vents to the top, nad I want to build up a charcoal basket to give me a longer burn time. I've seen some expanded metal ones and I found a piece of stainless expanded that I would like to use only i don't know if the holes are too small for good air flow. What do you guys think?
