I started smoking meat with a Brinkmann Smoke'NPit Professional in 1993. This is not to be confused with the thin, cheap, POS smoker they sell now.(this thing is HEAVY) I did the "usual" mods on it several years ago and it makes decent 'Q, but it really likes charcoal.!! Last year I built an UDS and hooked a Pitmaster IQ110 to it. Just load it with charcoal and a few apple chunx, throw the butts on, set the temp on the IQ110 sit back, drink beer and wait for it to spit out BBQ!! I also enjoy grilling with charcoal and....dare I say... my Weber Genesis 310. I would like to build a masonry smoker/grill in the near future.
