Tuna checking in

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

So I found this wonderful site and I just had to join.
A little about me, I like meat.
Ok there is a little more, I have been burning all kinds of stuff on a propane char grill POS for a number of years. My neighbor is a big charcoal guy and his stuff always comes out fantastic. So the other day I decided to go ahead and get a new grill. I really wanted a trager after checking one out at a family members house, but I cant afford to drop 800-1000 bucks on a BBQ. I ended up geting a Brinkmann smoke'n pit from wallyworld. I have used it twice so far with mixed results. I really like the grill and I can see that it has a lot of potential, but I need a lot more practice.

Welcome to SMF Tuna! You also need to do a little work to the Pit to make it a smokin' machine. Search thru the charcoal smokers forum for mods to that puppy... it'll improve it's functioning 10 fold! Enjoy!

Welcome to smf Tuna. That's the same smoker I have. After I did the mods to it, it eally works great. Do what Richtee said. Check out the forums. Most of the mods are quick and simple and will make a big difference.

Welcome to the SMF. Your smoker can produce some great Q, might need a few mods, read around the forums for help.

Welcome to SMF, Tunaboat. Okay, I just gotta ask-How did you come up with the User name "Tunaboat" when you're in Arizona?? Got a dear friend that lives in Queen Creek with her hubby.

Welcome to the SMF family. It is a great place full of smokin smarts.
Like everyone else said, do a search for the modifications that others have made to make the smoker better.
May all you smokes be thin and blue.
