Hey all ... Wife got me a smoker for Fathers Day this year (I guess whining about something enough does in fact work into adulthood (using "adult" very loosely here)). I am new to the outdoor smoking ... sure I've smoked our kitchen enough times by forgetting about something or making the oil too hot in the pan. Anyways ...going to be checking out the forum on a regular basis. I got a Brinkmann All-in-One. LP/Charcoal BBQ, Smoker, and ... turkey fryer (I cannot wait for thanksgiving this year.) I am looking for mods on these forums but I cannot find any I'm having issues with the search function. If any of you fine gents can point me in the right direction I'd like to make this all it can be. Right now my thoughts are: 1) Convert to NG if possible 2) Add a better Thermometer than a Warm/Ideal/Hot stock thermo 3) Figure out some way to control the airflow better when Smoking with Charcoal (which is my prefered method of cooking) Right now there is no control over how much air you can allow into the smoker so from what I understand there is no way to control the rate of burn.
