Brinkman split-door smokerI bought one a couple of days ago, and it's a good little smoker. It doesn't hold a lot (only two meat levels) but I was able to do a rack of ribs and a 5lb brisket. Probably could have got a bit more but since was the first time using it.... I did a couple of modifications for it, drilled about 6 holes in the bottom of the charcoal pan to get additional air flow. I also put insulation on three sides and top. This insulation is that 1/4 to 1/2 inch silver insulation you can put around HVAC or even water heaters. It works great, keeps the heat in (I'm able to put my hand against it when the smoker is going with no problems). This helps keep the heat going for a longer period, may save you a bit of charcoal in the long run. Doesn't cost a lot. It has four vents (two on the top unit, two on the bottom unit). I kept them open most of the time but you'll figure out what works best. Didn't take me long to season it yesterday and then this morning fired it up and was going all day. Hope this helps.
