    I just scored a sweet smoke pit from a neighbor. He gave me, for free, a Brinkman Trailmaster smoker.[​IMG] Its not an offset like I had originally wanted but I definately wouldnt turn my nose up to it. Just curious if anyone has any tips for using this particular grill. I plan on using it for the first time tomorrow. It only seems right to have the gentleman over for dinner. thanks in advance for any replies.

    Being unfamiliar with that smoker I had to Google it, that appears to be a very nice smoker ecspecially for the price. I also noticed 1/4" steel construction with a 75 year limited warranty; must be one solid machine? Congradulations on getting a new member to the family !!!

    sunday afternoon I did some pork steaks, country style ribs, hand-stuffed brats, and a fatty. It all turned out really good. The neighbor liked it and said he would be up every time he smelled smoke! lol.

    Free is good. You could always mod an offset box onto it.

    That is actually kind of what I had in mind. I hate to do anything to such a nice grill but then it would be what i really wanted. I have actually started building an offset and I may continue with it. I just need to convince the treasury dept. to release the funds to finish buying steel. I already have the major part, the 16" pipe, and a bunch of 2" pipe for a sturdy frame. What I need still are the odds and ends. It seems like they nickel and dime you to death.
