    I'm having a hard time getting the temp over 200 in a brand new Brinkmann upright. I just got it two weeks ago and am brand new to smoking. The meat turns out good, but it takes twice as long and I'm not getting the "crust" on the outside like I hoped.

    Any suggestions???
  2. Need just a bit more information. Which Brinkmann model do you have?

    If you have the SQUARE model you can quickly change out the charcoal pan to one of these:

    Can get at Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, etc. It is a grill wok and can be found in the grill section for under 10.
