The smokey flavor of the food will naturally depend upon the curing of the smoker grill and also the selection of woods used in your Brinkmann Smoke N Pit. Whilst this is a matter of personal taste, there are plenty of woods available for you to experiment with. Popular choices include maple, oak, mesquite and hickory.
As with most smoking grills, some areas will become hotter and smokier than others and the Brinkmann Smoke N Pit is no exception in this respect. For example, the bottom grate will be at a lower temperature than the top grate and will have less smoke. Care also needs to be taken if placing food adjacent to the entrance to the firebox on the Brinkmann Smoke N Pit as this area becomes extremely hot and may end up burning your food.
You will also need to place a small bucket or or vessel under the Brinkmann Smoke N Pit, on the metal rack, in order to catch the grease that drips off the food as it cooks/smokes.
