Brinkman Propane gasser conversion

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Holding low temps in my vertical Brinkman is impossible. So here is my thought to make it a multi-purpose smoker. If I put an electric hot plate on the bottom of the smoker and put a cast iron frypan filled with chips/sawdust I should be able to use it to cold smoke and make jerky. Any suggestions or thoughts?

What size burner did you put in it....I converted mine with a 30,000 BTU and can get stable low temps........

i coverted my electric ecb to a propane with the gasssmoker coversion.

i put a grate on top of the burner with some lavarock then use a metal woodchip box

for smoke. added a new thermometor at grate level. this thing holds temp almost perfect.

always a good smoke ring on my que. probally wound up with about 100.00 in the whole set up.

Rick,

 I have a question.

 I never have used a gas smoker but used to have a gas pit.

 what is the purpose of using lava rocks in a smoker?

 couldn't you just put a rack above the banjo burner to hold a chip box/pan ???

eman you are probally right about the lava rocks. you see years ago i bought a little propane smoken/grill

from brinkman it had lava rock probably for the grill optoin i got used to the setup so when i converted

this one i did it like that. also i wanted a little space between the chipbox and the burner.

who knows it may help stabalize the temp.
