I am getting an Brinkmann Gourmet Electric Smoker for Christmas and I am wondering if there are any mods i should do to help my performance? I noticed with the Charcoal version of this model there are a few mods recommended.
Appreciate any tips. Thanks.

I put a thermometer in my lid. Picked it up at Lowes. A Weber thermometer I believe. I also took advice from somewhere else on this site and bought a pepper grilling rack ($3.00 @ WalMart)to place my cast iron smoker box ($10.00 Lowes) on. I'd highly recommend this. Keeps it from resting directly on the element and harming it. One last thing, temperature control is a nice feature. I was lucky and got my hands on a monster rheostat. Barring that kind of luck it sounds like alot of people have successfully used a single burner hot-plate for lower temp smoking. I know the purists frown on the electric Brinkman's but I love mine!
