ok i have a brinksman chepo.. i have done three other briskits .. all good .. but i dont seem to get good temp controll... my main question though is should i place briskit on middle rack over the water pan or on top.. ? or will it evan make a differance? going to start smoking in morning..
thanks ....
Doesn't matter okie, top grate is a bit warmer but also easier to access
Unless I have a lot in mine I only use the top rack. I have the gourmet Brinkman and I put 2 vents in the top of it for better temp control. This is a pic of my first one and I added another on the other side. I also installed a thermometer in the top so I know the upper temp
thanks for all the replys .. i went with the top rack again.. it's turned out great .... pix will come up later..
