A while back, when I was just smoking butts on my weber kettle, I was able to pick up a Brinkman Pitmaster Deluxe for a deal through where I worked for $70 - brand new, mind you. Now that I am looking into modding and reading through these forums, I keep seeing people refer to the Smoke n Pit. Someone was reviewing the Royal Oak and comparing it to the Charbroil and the SnP and referred to both of those smokers as having thin steel, but my Pitmaster is pretty thick. My buddy has the charbroils and the Pitmaster is quite a bit thicker and sturdier than those and was comparable to the Royal Oak I saw recently in Lowes. Looking at the Brinkman site, I see them refer to the Smoke n Pit Pitmaster Deluxe. So, are the SnP and Pitmaster Deluxe the same smoker or different? As a side question, while I've got a thread going, what is the general temp difference between firebox side and far side? I made some mods (Baffle and tuning plates) and burned in the metal and was getting a 40 degree diff. 280 was the firebox side and 240 was the far side. I'm gonna take the plates out and baffle out and see what it is without them. But I would like to get that temp difference closer to equal. I guess there is tweaking involved.
