we got a free Brinkmann smoke n' pit vertical smoker on craigslist. I think it's an old model, there is no hinged lid or thermometer on it. inside are two trays and a rack. i'm assuming the charcoal goes on the bottom tray, and then water or wood or both goes on the top tray (?) and then food on the rack of course. does anyone know where i can find instructions for how to use this type of smoker. also, we were previously planning on getting a small electric smoker with a door, etc. how would this brinkmann smoker compare to an electric smoker with a door? thanks! non.
