I like to smoke at 225°F and my Brinkmann runs at a steady 270°F on low on an 80°F summer day, and 230°F on high on a winter day when it was 20°F with no wind. Although it has a small footprint, 17″ deep x 17.5″ wide x 42″ high plus space for the propane tank, it has three racks each capable of holding a slab of ribs split in half, a turkey, or a Boston butt. If you use wire rib racks. you can fit six slabs of ribs in. There is no damper, but you really don’t need one. You just leave the chimney open and control the temp with the gas gauge. The water and wood each go in separate removable porcelain pans.
