Take the Smoker?

The thought never occurred to me until DW brought it up today for our outing this weekend.

We have a Brinkman Smoker (gas) and love to smoke turkey and ribs, etc.

Anybody else do this?

We take our Weber Kettle Grill. I slow cook/smoke turkeys every holiday. People that follow us always laugh 'cause I put it on the bike rack and they "follow the bouncing grill". It is great just sitting around having a beer, adding coal and wood to get that nice smokey flavor.

Here you go:

Sounds and looks good. I've smoked some things in my day...but never any foods! :-)

Maybe you can give us some newbie tips???

My smoker that I built weighs close to 900lbs so I don't take it anywhere.

davenrobin,

I use to take my propane Brinkman water smoker with us all the time. I would smoke briskets, beer up the butt chicken, ribs... I use the expression "use to" because my smoker has bit the dust. I cannot find another propane water smoker like the Brinkman. I like it because it is very flexiable, I can use it as a smoker or grill.

Is yours new or have you had it for a while? If new, where did you get it?

Thanks,
MaxRock

we used to take our little brinkman to
now we have the rvQII it dont smoke, so i have a big un at the house to smoke brisquettes and turkeys, then freeze em and take along what we might eat


a hint to draw new friends

slowly warm a smoked brisquette on the grill , or grill up some bacon
it draws em like flies to a bull patty

We bought our Brinkman smoker from Service Merchandise, now out of business. That was 12 or 13 years ago.

Replacement parts can be ordered from the Brinkman website. Just ordered a new ash pan and burner.

We like ours for the same reasons.

I either bring my weber platinum bbq or my weber smokey mountain cooker (smoker), I used to bring the smokey joe, but it is too small. oh yeah i have the grill that mounts to the side of my rockwood too, but it sucks cooking for the whole family. maybe good for hotdogs or something.
