  1. Hello from California.  I stumbled across SMF a couple of week ago when I started researching smokers and smoking meats.  I have always been a fan of smoked meats and have always wanted to do it myself.  So i bought a Brinkmann vertical charcoal smoker this weekend.  I bought some Royal Oak lump charcoal, hickory, and some ribs on Sunday.  For my first smoke, I think they came out pretty good.  I may post the pics in the Pork section.  I'm so glad I found this site, very informative and friendly place to be. And of course I made the usual mod to the vertical smoker by changing the charcoal pan.  Got the BBQ wok from lowes.

    Welcome... I think we have the same smoker no? Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

    Wait... I just re-read your post. Did you say you may post pictures? If you didn't think to take any... we could give you a pass. But now that we know you have q-view. You better get that posted my friend. We got a saying around here.... "If there ain't no pics... then it never even happened"

    Welcome to SMF from NorCal
  8. Ya, I did take pictures. I will post them tomorrow night. Shall I post them here in this forum or should I post them in the pork forum?
    So the smoker I got is the one from home depot. The one thing that concerns me is I think I may have gotten an older model or something. I picked up an assembled smoker from home depot. Last one they had. The model number was 810-5502-W. The strange thing is, I thought the W specified the wal-mart model. But all of the labels and everything showed that it was a 810-5503-S. After I got it home, I noticed it. The serial number tag shows it's the W model. But from what I can see, they are essentially the same. I even got the one with the new handles and not the magnet version. Oh well, it works and I am happy with it.
    BTW, I am from the Riverside area.
