  1. Hello I have to say a HUGE thank you for all of the knowledge I have gleened from reading this site and to all the members whom take the time to share their knowledge of this wonderful art. I began dabbling in smoking meat about two years ago. Needless to say I am now a full blown addict. I started with the basic $89.00 brinkman Vertical. Through the wisdom of others on this site I was able to mod it into a rather effective and robust little smoking machine. I recently felt the need to upgrade to something with more space, so I ordered the Brinkmann Trailmaster 57" vertical smoker through Home Depot which was just delivered yesterday, I probably wont have the time to assemble it until this weekend, as I plan to use the hi temp RTV to seal it properly. I have noticed no other posts from any others whom have this unit, so I plan to report in on my experiences and required mods to get it working as effective and efficient as I can. Just would again like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone, and I am proud to finally join the community formally. I currently live in Michigan, about 50 miles outside of Detroit. Born and raised in Alabama, little town in Walker County. ROLL TIDE!
