I am new to smoking and recently joined the site. I purchased a Brinkman SnP, and attempted the curing process. The gap in the back of the cooking chamber was so wide, the thing held no heat or smoke. Could barely hold at 200. Also, the firebox finish started chipping just from the first time using. Needless to say, I broke it down and brought it right back to the Home Depot I purchased from. So I am doing research now on what the best entry level smoker that will get me going but last me, would be. I have seen a lot of decent reviews on the Trailmaster Limited. I am aware that any smoker in this price range will require some mods to get it right. I just want to get something that will have the littlest amount of mods needed to get me going. The SnP was just way to cheap to and left me feeling like it was not a smart investment. Any and all help would greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
