Been looking at the new Brinkmanns on their web site. I have the old style Brinkmann SnP. With the wooden shelf on the front. To be honest I don't see much difference between the Brinkmann Cimarron that they are getting $650.00 for and the one that I have. Mine came from Wal Mart 7 years ago for around 100 bucks. The exception of a ash pan is the major difference I can see between mine and the Cimarron. Also some of their other custom elite models closer to 1000 bucks and over don't seem that much different from the lower priced models. Am I missing something or is this just Brinkmann marketing? I have read on other web sites about lots of mods that need to be done to the lower end Brinkmanns and others manufacturers to make them perform adequately. I have yet to do my first smoke in my old style SnP but plan to soon. But after reading about all these mods, baffles etc I wonder if my SnP will do the job. Would like to hear from some of you Brinkmann owners about the quality and funcionality of your Brinkmann. Which model are you using? Only interseted in the charcoal/stick burners.
