New here but not new to cooking. I am new to a side box smoker/grill however. I have tried to cook briskets and have had less than desirable results in my electric smoker and was told by a Texan who does killer briskets that I need a side box so I went in search of one on Craigslist. I looked at the newer Brinkman at the box stores and all are thin metal and have bad reviews. I found a smoker in very good condition no rust or burn out made out of heavy steel for $40.00 so if I need to make some mods Im not in the hole too much. Pretty sure its a early Brinkman. This thing is heavy and seems to seal well .I have not used it yet. What do I have and is this a rat hole?Here are some pics.
