When I first signed in on roll call I mentioned that I had heavily modified a Brinkman smoke N pit smoke king deluxe. Larry and Dutch asked for me to post pics of the Mods. I think I have finally got enough of a handle on posting pics to try and post it. Here goes. First off my smoker did not seem to have the support necessary to keep it from sagging in the middle so I added some legs on the right side of the fire box Also the door handle just kind of flopped around and could come open on its on so I put a bracket on the inside to keep it still; I still had a problem with the temp control so I decided to convert it to propane from charcoal only. This pic shows the main burner and the pilot generator that generates the 3/4 volt need to run the gas valve; I can either use my smoker boxes sitting on my anderirons or if I need to get heat up high I can use wood on the aderirons and use the gas to get them lit. Using propane only I only get about 250 degrees in the smoke chamber. Sometimes I want to get the temp up higher to crisp chicken skin or something like that and then I either build a wood fire or put charcoal under my water pan in the smoke chamber. This is what it normally looks like in the firebox; Here is a picture of the main gas valve. It operates just like the gas valve on your gas furnace or water heater; Here is a picture of the thermostat control and another one of the thermostat sensing bulb; Here is a couple of pictures that show the gas lines going to the pilot light and the main burner and one of a digital probe for checking internal temp of meat or smoke chamber; Well that's about all I've done to it, but it works pretty well now. If anyone wants any info on the parts to do this I will be glad to provide them.
