post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I have a Brinkman Vertical Smoker that is charcoal and am thinking about replacing the charcoal bowl with the burner from a turkey fryer.

It should be pretty easy but I have not trying fitting it in there yet.

Anyone every do something like this?

hey big dawg

Did you ever convert your charcoal brinkman over to the turkey fryer burner ? i am thinking of doing this.

There may be a problem of getting the burner to sustain a low temparature. A turkey fryer burner is designed to put out a lot of heat.

turkey fryer

i have a brinkman smoke n pit which has an offset box. i went to propane with no problem.you need a low pressure regulator and i placed a valve that come from the regulator and attach to the hose. i can adjust the gas/flame way down no problems.

Not yet but I am still shopping for ideas.

The local Menards sells the burners for about $22.00.

I was thinking just cut a hole in the bottom and lower the smoker on top. Throw a cast iron skilet on it for the wood chunks and use the water bowl on top of that.

If you need the fryer again just lift it off. icon_mrgreen.gif

Debi is right on. I do have one sugestion, though. I would try and fabricate something that lifts your chip tray at least a few inches above the burner. My 2 gas smokers have about a one inch clearance between the burner and chip tray.

you might try a side burner from an old grill I have one in a homemade smoker. the best thing is these old grills are setting out a lot when people get new grills mine works great (Just a sugestion)
