We're smokin' now!

Les had a great find at work today!! For those who don't know, he works on repossessed/foreclosed homes and whatever's in them or on the property has to be disposed of. Well today, he found a Brinkman smoker!! It's one of the oblong ones with the firebox on the side. I haven't seen it yet because it wouldn't fit in the van. He said it's really heavy and took two of them to put it in the trailer. He also said it's been well-used and needs a cleaning badly. I figure that's a small price to pay for a freebie!

Another great find, at least I think so was the cookbook "Smoke and Spice" by Cheryl Alters Jamison and Bill Jamison. I've been reading it tonight and have seen all sorts of recipes to try.

Just wanted to share the good news! If you have any suggestions on properly cleaning it, please share!!

I'll tell him to take some pics with his brother's camera and email them to me so I can post them. It would help with questions if you guys know exactly what we have anyway.

I've already told him we have to borrow the camera for our first cook as well. It will be our first ever so has to be commemorated! Our camera just stopped working out of the blue a few months ago and we haven't replaced it yet.

If it's heavy, it's probably a small "stick burner"... not a bullet.

From what he said, it's an offset smoker similar in looks to this:

http://www.bbqgalore.com/store/item.bbq?invky=4089929

Of course, that's a different brand but that's the way he described it to me. I can't wait till he gets it home and I can take a look at it, clean it, and cook. I want me some Q!! It's been a couple of years since I've had some real Q.

WTG Allie!
It's probably a Brinkman Smokin Pit Pro. Don't forget to do all the mods. ...extend the exhaust down to the grate level, add fire bricks, make up a baffle, charcoal basket etc....
