Product Description

The Gourmet Charcoal is our top-of-the-line double grill charcoal water smoker. It has two chrome plated steel cooking grills for a 50 pound cooking capacity. The smoker body lifts off the base for easy access to an extra-large charcoal pan, and also allows for quick and easy conversion to a waist high barbecue grill. A heat indicator in the lid eliminates guesswork. Features include porcelain coated steel water pan, front hinged door for easy access to water and charcoal pans, and wooden handles that stay cool to the touch.

This is a nice little smoker and great if you want to learn how to do it, or you smoke on the odd weekend here and there. It is inexpensive, and it works. But I have learned a couple of tricks with this one.

1. Get a digital thermometer. I drilled a wee hole in the top for the probe. With a digital thermometer this is a 5 star unit. Without one, do not waste your time.

2. Keep water in the water pan. If it gets low, add additional boiling water. Adding hot water keeps you from losing temperature.

3. Use "real" hardwood charcoal and not briquets. Get a solid bed of coals going well (lots of white ash) before you put your meat on. Hardwood charcoal seems to maintain heat and you do not get spikes or drops in temp as I did with briquets.

4. Recognize this is a small unit and it gains and loses heat fast. I check it every half hour, and add a few lumps of charcoal and a piece of whatever wood I am smoking with. The trick is to make small adjustments frequently, and not do major changes so that it gets too hot or too cool. And you can not maintain heat if it starts raining. The unit loses too much heat.

The first time I smoked, I got great results but had to mess with it constantly. By the third time I had it to the point where I only had to check it about once an hour. This is not a set it and forget it smoker, but it is inexpensive and it works very well if you are willing to attend it. That versus expensive smokers that you also have to attend.

I have owned this exact smoker before. When the previous unit rusted through I bought a lesser model from the same company and it does not perform well-charcoal does not burn all the way before it puts itself out. Used the new unit at Thanksgiving and it smoked a 13# bird in 5 hours and still had plenty of heat. It does generate a lot of heat compared to other water smokers but it works very well. It will do 2 4-5 pound chickens in 3-1/2 hours with fabulous results. The only downside is that it can not be left outside or it will rust. The bottom lip on the charcoal pan will collect rain and divert it into the ashes. I would buy this unit again

I purchased the Gourmet Charcoal smoker as the 4th Brinkmann charcoal smoker that I have owned over the last 35 years. The others have been the 'R2D2' standard Brinkmann models. I still have the 2nd one that I ever purchased and it still works. For those of us who have taken the time to learn how to use the smoker as intended, it is simple and produces good smoked meats. I smoke pork ribs, salmon, sausages, chicken breasts, whole catfish (skinned, headed and gutted), and other fish. All turn out well. I use whatever wood I gather from the yard - oak (best), maple, fruit wood, and sycamore, to provide smoke. All work - I don;t recommend buying special woods for smoking. I also use extra racks from the old smokers to layer meats in the smoker and gain capacity..

This is a much nicer and slightly heavier built model than the last standard model that I purchased 10 years ago. The separate charcoal pan works nicely and seems to provide a more consistent heat. I smoked baby back ribs last night on the grill using 35 yr old Brinkmann rib racks. They were pronounced "the best that I have done" by my wife's retired chef friend.. I would highly recommend this product.

The only downside was that the bottom cylinder part of the smoker was bent and dented on arrival though not enough to be worth the trouble to return the smoker. And not enough to effect the functioning of the smoker. Stiffer packaging for shipping is probably needed.

I bought my first Brinkmann Gourmet Smoker 29 years ago for $45. Time goes on. When I used it last week, it became clear that it was about time to replace it, so I have. For all of that time the old smoker sat outside in the weather without a cover. The exterior is now oxidized and rust is starting to form (this is arid New Mexico though) and its been banged up badly by a hale storm (softball-sized hale), but the biggest issue is that the charcoal pan is rusting through. That it is, is my fault. Ash is exceedingly corrosive and if I had washed out the charcoal pan after each use, I wouldn't have needed a new smoker.

The new smoker is similar, but there are several design improvements, particularly to the wooden handles which are much better designed on the new smoker. I've read in other reviews that the holes on the handles do not line up with the holes in the smoker. While this is the case, I regard it as a trivial matter. The metal on the handles is easily bent to fit the drilled holes on the smoker. My smoker arrived from Amazon, well protected and undamaged. Rather than missing hardware (nuts and screws) I had more than needed. I assembled the smoker in less than a half hour with a screw driver and small crescent wrench.

I considered replacing my old smoker with the similarly-sized Weber Smokey Mountain. Perhaps if it was 30 years ago I would go for the Weber, but this new Brinkmann will certainly outlast me and I have every bit as adequate a smoker plus an extra $200 in my pocket.
