Yeah I'm using this specifically for smoking, no grilling. I have a Napoleon for that.

OK so direct on the bottom. I have to get something for the bottom then, as it will light my house on fire.

I will try two half inch holes (I'll see what I got for bits) and go from there.

Thanks again

Good luck like BW said, a friend had one & threw it away. They don't stay hot & are a pain to mess with. If'in I was you I would send it back & get a WSM

I'm thinking this might be the case. The lid is very far away from the unit sides.

I done tole you thats how they make em. Use any size holes you got a drill bit for. Most of mine are 3/8" seems like. As the Boy say a WSM be mo easier to manage and approx the same price. The internal firepan is a real pain in the coola on the ECB's. Brinkmann Gourmet works much mo betta cuz it has a two piece design where you can lift the barrell off to tend the fire. Whether they let you take it back after you have done built a fire in it..I just aint sure. Now if yall had a Wally World they give you a refund quick. Might play up the missing nuts and bolts deal purty heavy if they give you any trouble. Or if you decide to keep it I will vote thataway too. I am sorta like ACORN on certain issues. I vote early and often and prob will continueth till past time to go to be with the Lord. Holler any old time.

Same price? This was $169, the WSM 22" is close to $500. I think I might look at the 18".

My video shows that I've modified the firepan as a separate unit. The people I bought it from aren't that smart, and they are running end of line, from what I gather.

Anyway I'll probably sell it on Craigslist or Kijiji this week and get me a Weber. The Napoleon is too damn expensive.

Regardless what you did a tolls me (or however you spell that in the South), it still doesn't make sense. The main body isn't round, and there's way too much space around the top for any heat to be kept, regardless how hot you can get it. In fact, the hotter you get the fire burning, the more heat you lose. Smoking is a long term thing, last time I checked.

Also, I've seen even the new WSM's need foil to pack them tight. So it seems nobody can get them right. And they don't have them at Canadian Tire. You have Canadian Tire down there boy?

Well a person got to be purty anal to worry about the loose fitting lid. I bet thats yankees poking all the tinfoil down in the crack. It will hold down plenty of heat the way they build em. Old chum of mine who runs a big Mom n Pop C-store has the largest selection of beer in N. Texas. Sure I can find that stuff you mention if I put my mind to looking for it. I only drink beer once a week which is boys night out on Friday. I usually do Bud Light so to maintain my youthful figger. I was knocking out 3 or 4 18 packs a week of Natural Light (since it so cheap) but the Doc got to naggin about my triglycerides and the Warden convinced herself it was caused by all the beer. Now I just drink ice water with a splash of Franzia Chillable Red to get the water taste outta the mouf parts.

Yep I'm anal. Minimal work, predictable results.

You know Yegua Creek Brewing Company?

Re: Brinkmann Stainless Smoke n' Grill

I was pining for a WSM but with a kid in college, one a year away, and one in HS something always came up. I got one of the Brinkman Stainless Steel Smokers as my 25 years of service gift last year. Boy, was I disappointed. These things are pure junk. I never used it and gave it to a friend.
I'm glad to see you went for the WSM. I did, too.
