[Review--this is the Brinkmann smoker model, or one called the Smoke
N'Grill Gourmet, we recommend that beginners purchase if they want a charcoal-fired unit.
The body of these smoker models lifts off the charcoal pan section for ease of fire
maintenance. They have a larger fire pan, better temperature control, easier starting, and
easier cleaning, making the difference in price between this model and the cheaper ECB
above well worth the extra few dollars.]
