Brinkmann Gourmet Electric Smoker Review

Share on:
Brinkmann Gourmet Electric Smoker

On October 8, 2015, Brinkmann filed for Chapter 11 under the US bankruptcy code. 

The Brinkmann Gourmet Electric Smoker is a cheapo painted steel bullet that comes in red or black. It has a 1500 watt heating element and lava rocks but, unlike the Meco or Char-Broil, there is no variable control or thermostat. It has a decent thermometer and a front hinged door to make adding water or BBQ wood easy. Two chrome-plated 15.5″ steel cooking racks, wooden handles, porcelain-coated steel water pan. One year warranty.

grouchy?

1) Please try the search box at the top of every page before you ask for help.

2) Try to post your question to the appropriate page.

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can’t help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.

4) If you are a member of the Pitmaster Club, your comments login is probably different.
