Hi everyone. New here. Running with a Brinkmann Gas/Charcoal Dual Function that I modded to hook a side firebox from a similar model up to. Still trying to work out the kinks. My buddy treats me to awesome smoked deliciousness from his Traeger but I want to do things the Charcoal/Lump way. Eventually ill graduate to a bigger dedicated rig but I want to get the hang of things first. Been using this Brinkmann for around 4 years for grilling so I figured I'd just mod it to start with and go from there. Did some baby backs but had some issues with low temps and wasn't able to finish them all the way after 5.5 hours (200F), but more on that later. Here's my pit.
