    Pros - Cheap and easy
    Cons - It has a few loose rivets on the lower door.
    I wanted a smoker for some time. I bought this one at Walmart for $74.00. I figured for that price could give it a try.  It's a good pick to get into smoking with not much investment in a smoker.

    Pros - Double walled, holds heat well. Got it up to 345*
    Cons - Door Thermometer off by about 40*
    This is a great electric smoker. Has double metal walls, so it holds the heat well.  Tested it seasoned it and got it up to 345* if ever needed.  Temp control has degrees written on it ( No low, med hot) which is great and accurate.  The gauge on the door is off by about 40* Has a hole in the top back with a grommet for you to stick your digital probe in.    Had a small dent on the top back side, could not tell from the box, but to me it doesn't matter one bit.

    It wasn't your controller.  I had the same thing happen with the 810-5515 and the 810-5510.  The heating element burns out the the little corningware stops on the end of the heating element that prevent heat from getting to the controller from the heating element.  The 5510 no longer has replacement heating elements but the 5515 does.  I recommend buying a couple replacements as long as they are in stock especially if you are going to be doing briskets or long term cooked items.  Other than this flaw this is a great little smoker.

    Brinkman sent a new controller and it melted on first use. The smoker would not get past 180 degrees. It's going back to Walmart first chance I get. I hope to replace with 18.5 WSM.

    Follow up on this smoker. The electric controller melted after the fifth smoke. I think it was because I turned it up all the way after a cook to clean the racks. I e-mailed Brinkman and they are sending out another controller. Very good customer service. I did find out by reading some reviews that people were complaining about melted controllers. They did discontinue this model hence the good price.

    My good friend just gave me his when he bought a new one and turned me to this forum to join. I read around the forum and fired it up this past weekend and it went well. I had been a long time BBQ'r but not a smoker. Must say I'm addicted now and will use this little smoker until it crumbles. By then I should have enough experience to know what I want in a smoker.

    Dang for that price it is worth a shot. I found an old barrel smoker at a garage sale for 10 bucks, the shell was the only thing not rusted to dust but for 10 bucks and some elbow grease it does ok.

    Still waiting, Patiently. Not trying to rush you, I know all to well how busy life can be I'm just a little excited to see if this would work for me.
    Take it easy!

    I will get you the info and measurements. I think you could do 2 10lb shoulders pulling the middle rack. I'll check it out and give you some rack to rack measurements. There's not a hole lot of adjustment room for the racks.( not rows and rows of holes) I'll try snap a few pics so you can see what I mean.

    Hey thanks for the info. What are the inside dimensions of actual cooking area; height, length, width? And when using two or three racks what spacing can you get between them? For example could you do two 10# pork shoulders? I use the cheap electric brinkman currently but want a little more temp control. This might be a nice little pick up while I’m working out my home built fridge smoker, and when I want to do small stuff. Amazon has them available for $119.00 at the moment.
    Thanks again.
