  1. Hi

      I am new here.  Just started smoking.  I have a Brinkman electric and it is so-so.  My Brother is the one that is really into smoking.  He has a repurposed Fridgidaire  circa 1958.  I am thinking about the same thing but can not find an old Fridge.   I am looking at a charcol brinkman with the two doors or a Bradley "Original" electric (without digital controls.  Both are used.  The charcol is going to be $90.00 and the Brinkman is $150.00  What is the considerations or concerns from other members?  I would like all the info I could get about my choices.  Thanks in advance for the help

    First off welcome to SMF there Bud. You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course. It is free and it will also give you the basics on smoking. So with all that said now go and get something to smoke.

    Welcome Bud

    You may want to make another post in the electric forum with a title including the name of your smoker.  Same with a post in the wood/charcoal forum.   Sometimes the person that can help you will not read the New Members area.

    Good Luck, I am not familiar with either of those smokers so can't be much help
