I just started smoking last year I picked up a cheapo brinkman that still needs all its mods done. Unfortunately I do not have a lot of time to sit and tend to a fire all day so holiday weekends or the far and few between slow weekend is the only time I have to do it. I am kinda a die hard charcoal guy but I am considering when I upgrade getting a propane or electric. Or if I were to mod up my cheapo brinkman would I be a little happier with it? And is there a charcoal smoker that would be better?
