New Cooker
So I walk into wally world and go over in the outdoor garden section and I see this

With a big yellow sticker marked down to $30. So I think "what the heck even if its a pig I can mod it and use it for extra space".
And it can be the baby to the daddy BSKD (family mod)

Curing the thing right now and it's been going for 2.5 hours at 260-275 with hardly any fluctuations. Nothing in it but oil and 3/4 a chimney of RO. Anybody have any experience with these? Did I land on a pot 'o' gold?

If anyones has ever cooked on one let me know.

Is that a "Great Outdoors". Never used one myself, but have heard good reports from others.

Even if it's not a good smoker, it'll make a fine bread warmer, or holding area.

PimpSmoke 08-05-2006 05:22 PM

No, it's made by Brinkmann. It's like a baby version of the BSKD's cook chamber.

By the way, still holding temp with only 6 more briquettes added. I'm gonna let those burn out and then put it away until tonight, then it's briskie time!

Huge improvement on fuel consumption over the SKD, for when cook for just us at home. Lookin like a good buy so far.

OK. Saw one of those at Menards. Was around $100.00 if I remember correctly. Good deal.

Been running them on sale here in Va for 79 bucks. You done good

qman 08-05-2006 05:46 PM

Ya did good Pimp. Those things been running just under 100.00 around here. Guess they are closing out stock for the year, huh,
My brother in Ga. has one of these that he uses [like u said] for small family cooks where he is not doing a lot of meat. It is not a WSM, but temps are fairly easy to control.

For $30 man you can't go wrong. If I would have seen something like that, no way am I leaving the some without it. Like you say it can always be modded. Ya just need an imagination. Good score!

kcquer 08-05-2006 07:31 PM

Good snag Pimpy! My coworker bought one for $99, and thought he had a good deal. Let us know how she works out!

bbqbull 08-05-2006 08:28 PM

Hell ya couldnt buy the metal, nor the paint for that price. Let alone your time and labor to build it.


Q_Egg 08-05-2006 08:43 PM
