    Can't decide on a budget offset smoker , Char-Griller smokin pro vs. Chair Broil Deluxe Gourmet, vs

    Hey there! I have owned a Chargriller Smoking Pro for the last 8 years, and I often leave it uncovered outside. It is STILL not rusted out and the wood actually has help up really well. That being said, I use it as a grill and not as a smoker. I purchased a Brinkman Trailmaster Vertical smoker...

    Welcome friend! I have the same smoker, purchased it last spring. I wouldnt worry so much about sealing every joint, the main issue will be the main chamber door, that is going to require some love to get a nice seal. There are several ways you can go about it. The stock temp gage is going to...

    New Brinkmann Trailmaster Vertical Smoker

    I bought this smoker last spring after using the cheap Brinkman vertical for a couple years. My door did not close tight, but I filled the gap with some metal putty and then some hi temp black RTV silicone, and worked great. I also sealed all of the joints when assembling it as well. I made the...

    getting a new smoker......dont know what to go with

    I let mine set for a couple days so the silicone could firm up completely. The brand I used came in black, so there was no need for painting over it. On Home Depots website, one reviewer listed all of the modifications he did and included pictures as well.

    getting a new smoker......dont know what to go with

    I used the silicone heavily in the area where the firebox meets the cooking chamber, I wanted no leaks. I sealed anything and everything. Maybe I over did it, who knows, all I can say is mine has no leaks what so ever now. I don't feel adding an additional quality thermo is overkill at all, I...

    getting a new smoker......dont know what to go with

    I recently purchased the Brinkman 57" Vertical from Home Depot. I could not be more pleased with the unit. I did use high temp silicone to seal every joint during assembly, and the main chamber door required quite alot of effort with the silicone to get a good seal when closed, but it does not...
