Hey everyone. I'm, as we speak, cooking up my first pork butt on my brinkman gourmet charcoal smoker. I bought it at a hardware store, and it was cheap. My biggest complaints are the tiny door and I can't seem to control the temperature at all. Because the door is so small, I really can't control where the coals are going either. And there's only tiny slits in the bottom of the fire pan to let air flow in. Do you have a recommendation for what the best upright smoker would be? I'm looking to keep it affordable and that's the main reason I went with this smoker to begin with. I'm assuming the upright smoker would be the best/most economical route. Maybe I just need some tips on how to use this smoker...
