    Nice budget smoker

    Customer review by ugadawgs98

    Overall I am very please with this split door smoker. I have used it for about a dozen long smokes, mostly Boston Butts, that have turned out some excellent pulled pork. I replaced a Brinkman Smoke n' Pit bullet smoker with this and found it is defiantly much easier to use due to the doors. My main complaint with the smoker is the charcoal pan. It is the same design Brinkman has used for ages on all their smokers and it still has the same problems which they will not vent and no grate on the charcoal pan. The charcoal ends up smothering itself in ash as the top coals burn out. The bottom coals get no oxygen and there is no grate to allow the ash to fall so it smothers. You must constantly open to door and shake the pan to keep it burning which lowers the heat and increases the cook time. If you do nothing to the pan you will battle to keep the temp at 200 degrees. That really takes the fun out of smoking. I solved the problem by replacing the charcoal pan with a stainless steel Charmglow grilling wok from Home Depot. It fits the rails perfectly and solves the problem. The smoker would get 5 stars if Brinkman would fix the design.

    After reading many of the reviews posted here I realized most buyers intended to purchase a grill and DON'T KNOW the differrence between a grill and a smoker. Smokers cook at low temperatures for extended periods. I bought this smoker at my local Wally World and love it!. Just smoked 2 medium chikens for 6 hrs at a average 150-160 degree temperature. In the last hour I increased the bricket-charcoals and wood to reach the reccomended 180 temp for well cooked poultry. THIS SMOKER PERFORMED FLAWLESSLY THE WHOLE TIME. I did follow the reccomendation made of drilling holes in the bottom of the charcoal pan and worked great, THANK YOU FOR THE HEADS UP!. LOVE THE DUAL DOORS, THIS MAKES IT EXTREMLEY EASY TO LOAD AND UNLOAD FULE/CHIPS ETC. Also the sliding grates work great. Having always used a dome style smoker I do feel like I did an awesome upgrade. I also think that compared to more expensive smokers it was a wise move. I will use this smoker for years to come. LOOKING FORWARD TO THANKSGIVING DAY FOR A SMOKED HAM AND THE TRADITIONAL BIRD ! ! IF YOU ARE UNDECIDED WHAT TO GET, STOP AND GET THIS BEFORE THEY ARE GONE. good luck....

    Easy to assemble. I did swap out the stock charcoal pan for one with air holes and added a quality temperature gauge as the one that came with the unit arrived broken. After seasoning the unit as directed, I fired it up and smoked a beef roast, pork ribs and some sausage. It maintained an even temperature throughout with only minor adjustments to the air vents. The dual doors make it super easy to add charcoal and wood and to apply a mop to your meat. Overall this is a great entry level smoker at a great price.

    • yes. We would use hickory charcoal and hickory wood chips....also did the same with mesquite. Soak the wood chips in water before you put them on top of the charcoal. Add more wood chips when the smoke gets low coming out of the vents. The whole neighborhood will smell great!

    • Hi, Yes, you can use soaked wood chips/chunks on your Brinkmann 810-5502-W Smoker. To obtain your favorite smoke flavor, experiment by using chunks, sticks or chips of flavor producing wood such as hickory, pecan, apple, cherry, or mesquite. Most fruit or nut tree wood may be used for smoke flavoring. Do not use resinous wood such as pine as it will produce an unpleasant taste. Wood chunks or sticks 3" to 4" long and 1" to 2" thick worst best. Unless the wood is still green, soak the wood in water for 30 minutes. A lot of wood is not required to obtain a good smoke flavor. A recommended amount for the Vertical Smoker is 5 to 6 wood chucks or sticks. Experiment by using more wood for stronger smoke flavor or less wood for milder smoke flavor. Thank you, Brinkmann Customer Service Team

    • Yes -- most hardwoods are OK. Stay away from pine or any woods that give off toxic fumes.

    • wood chips burn away too fast. I would recommend the chunk wood, like apple, cherry, etc. to add extra flavoring
