    Customer review by CTumbleweed

    I purchased this unit yesterday because I needed a smoke cabinet that I could modify to use a variety of heat sources. This is intended to be used with charcoal, but I placed a 1500 watt brinkmann heating element in the bottom. I ran the cord out the vent, then set my hickory wood in the bowl above the heat element. I filled the space below the element with lava rock. I also have a gas burner that will fit nicely if I decide to use propane. I seasoned the smoker for about an hour before use. I cooked a 15 lb brisket all night last night. Using a digital thermometer I was able to check the accuracy of the guage in the unit door. It was pretty accurate to about 15-20 degrees from what I could tell. The unit maintained a temp of about 240 degrees all night with an outside temp in the forties. I'm sure charcoal would work just as well. With 4 adjustable vents, temp regulation should be easy. The unit was undamaged and packed well. Assembly was a cinch, as my 8 year old son was able to do most of it. He enjoys helping. The only addition that I plan to make is some high temp felt gasket for the doors, as some smoke does tend to escape there. The brisket turned out amazing. This is nothing fancy, but it is well made, affordable, and makes a perfect smoking chamber. I'll add some images to this review.

    Great beginner smoker

    Customer review by Terry1776

    5.0 stars by Terry1776

    I feel like people who rate this lower are people who are rating this smoker against higher end smokers. The problem is, this CLEARLY isn't a higher end smoker because of the price. Anyone who does a little due diligence and research can easily find out what they're getting with this smoker, and for the price in comparison with smokers in it's class-range this thing is AWESOME! Yes, the metal is thin and you have to perform a few modifications to it, but you knew that going in. And the mods are easy and cost an additional $20-30 extra. You will not find a better beginner smoker for the price, and it allows for easy mods and room for upgrades (adding more racks, etc). I highly recommend this for a first smoker or as something for the "casual" smoker. I am a novice to veteran griller/smoker and I have turned out GREAT food with this thing. There is a bit of a learning curve, but there's one for anything you buy: you have to learn how it performs and its nuisances. Again, great smoker.

    Replacement for Brinkmann Smoke N' Grill

    Customer review by MDTexas

    5.0 stars by MDTexas

    I purchased this smoker to replace my Brinkmann Smoke N' Grill (got tired of having to lift a full smoker off the coal pan to refuel). Being new to smoking, I wasn't in the market to spend a lot, so I wasn't expecting a professional grade smoker. For the price, I'm pleased with the quality and convenience of this smoker. When I received my new Char-Broil smoker, I assembled it, adding some self-adhesive smoker gasket material around both doors. I also purchased the Mr. Bar B Q wok topper to use as a coal pan (to increase airflow and prevent coal smothering). I didn't test the smoker without the gasket, so I don't know if it was really necessary but it seems to work well. As for the coal pan, unless you're willing to drill the stock pan full (and I mean FULL) of holes, I'd highly recommend a wok topper/grill basket -- square or round, either will work. I have to say, I'm very pleased with my purchase. The temperature was easy to control with the vents and the smoker held steady temp for over two hours on my initial trial run. When opening the bottom door to add more coals/wood, there was very little heat loss. I appreciate the convenience of being able to add coals and water throughout the cooking process by accessing the coal and water pans through the bottom door. I'm pleased with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive charcoal smoker.

    • Putting charcoal in a pan (without ventilation) will not work, I bought a weber round charcoal grill grate for $9 and placed it on top of the charcoal pan, works great and fits great. Use lump charcoal and wood chunks and you can get all the heat you need.

    • Needs more air intake to get hotter fire. I drilled some extra holes in fire pan, about 12 1/4" holes. Works better.

    • It sounds to me like you're not using your vents correctly: You probably think that you have to keep the vents closed to keep the heat in, but it's the OPPOSITE. You have to open your vents to provide more oxygen to your coals/wood so they burn higher and hotter. You'll have to experiment by first keeping all of the vents OPEN. Watch your thermometer, and if you get too high, close one of the vents. If both vents are open and you're not getting above 225, you're not using enough coal/wood! But my guess is it's your vent control which is screwing you up. Also, and of course, resist the temptation to open your main lid/cover to "peek in" when you don't have to. You'll lose a lot of heat in the chamber this way, but with small units like this, it doesn't take all that long to bring it back up to optimum temperature again. Good luck, and have fun!
