I Have a homemade smoker that uses a brinkmann 1500 watt element. It finally died and I need a new one but everywhere I look they say it's discontinued. Anyone know of a close replacement?
Google 1500W Smoker Heating Element. You will get options that you may adapt...JJ
Nate, I am in the same boat.  I was looking today for a Brinkmann 1500 watt replacement and cant seem to find anything comparable.  Let me know if you happen to find anything, I will do the same.  
I found this one.  I am not sure if links are allowed, so just cut and paste into amazon:
[h1]Universal Replacement Electric Smoker and Grill Heating Element with Adjustable Thermostat Controller **NEW 1500 Watts Higher Heat**[/h1]
i seen that one and thought about giving it a try but one it cost twice as much as the brinkmann I  had did and I don't like that the tempture controller would be inside, I can see it casuing problems being inside the smoker.   I think I may try this one Bloomfield 2N-70143UL 120-volt 1500-watt Heating Element and just put my own cord on

Fix for tt- 0059914573 (Not a good practice. Added to accommodate for Pantry brandbyline viewdapter)
You need to MAKE SURE that the Bloomfield is not made to be immersed, to dissipate heat, like a water heater element.

If a water heater element is not surrounded by water,, they will burn open very quickly.

I have the bottom mount as well, wish I didn't. Even with my drip pan there is always grease and drippings accumulating on the bottom. I also don't remove mine,

if your looking for a PID controller the one DirtSailor links to is good, but the duel probe controller is by far the best and worth every penny.

ive done 2 builds with it, and working on a third.

You can also use a finned strip heater, as high a wattage as you want so long as it fits dimensionally. The key though is you have to use the dual probe I linked with a finned strip heater. The reason being is that it can actually be programmed for the total power output. If you run a finned strip heater at full power with no forced air then they burn out. You can drop the total power output with the dual 1800w controller to match the max watt per sq" for still air ovens. They work very well with this set up. They also have a smaller footprint in the bottom of a fridge smoker, I use a sink drain under the finned strip heater for air intake and it doubles as a clean out drain.
