Long time no post! I looked at my last threads, it was 2009 the last time I posted, egads time flies!
I was looking for some advice, getting back into using the old Brinkman after many years, and was wondering if someone could point me to, or tell me about maybe some ways to avoid wood fires.
I've been setting an open smoker box inside a donut of coals in the charcoal pan in my Brinkman vertical water smoker, sometimes it works great, sometimes the coals aren't close enough so no smoke, other times the box gets too hot and you see the temp at 425 with a nice forest fire going in there. I see some people are talking about smoking tubes and such.
I had been thinking of buying like a 2 inch metal pipe at the hardware store, capping one end, then filling it with chips and laying it on the coals. Would that work?
There's only like 8 inches of room from the coals to the bottom of the water pan, so can't have an actual vertical pipe going up.
Hope you all are doing good! cheers!
