IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNINGS
WE WANT YOU TO ASSEMBLE AND USE YOUR SMOKER AS SAFELY AS POSSIBLE.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL
IS TO ATTRACT YOUR ATTENTION TO POSSIBLE HAZARDS AS YOU ASSEMBLE AND USE YOUR SMOKER.
WHEN YOU SEE THE SAFETY ALERT SYMBOL, PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE INFORMATION WHICH FOLLOWS!
READ ALL SAFETY WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY
BEFORE ASSEMBLING AND OPERATING YOUR SMOKER.
WARNING
•
Only use this smoker on a hard, level, non-combustible, stable surface (concrete, ground, etc.) capable of supporting the weight of
the smoker. Never use on wooden or other surfaces that could burn.
•
DO NOT use smoker without ash pan in place. DO NOT attempt to remove ash pan while tray contains hot coals.
•
Proper clearance of 10 feet between the smoker and combustible material (bushes, trees, wooden decks, fences, buildings, etc.) or
construction should be maintained at all times when smoker is in use. Do not place smoker under a roof overhang or other enclosed area.
•
FOR OUTDOOR USE ONLY. Do not operate smoker indoors or in an enclosed area.
•
For household use only. Do not use this smoker for other than its intended purpose.
•
We recommend the use of a Charcoal Chimney Starter to avoid the dangers associated with charcoal lighting fluid. If you choose to
use charcoal lighting fluid, only use lighting fluid approved for lighting charcoal. Carefully read manufacturer’s warnings and
instructions on the charcoal lighting fluid and charcoal prior to the use of their product. Store charcoal lighting fluid safely away
from smoker.
•
When using charcoal lighting fluid, allow charcoal to burn with smoker box door open until covered with a light ash (approximately
20 minutes). This will allow charcoal lighting fluid to burn off. Failure to do this could trap fumes from charcoal lighting fluid in
smoker and may result in a flash fire or explosion when smoker box door is opened.
•
Never use charcoal that has been pre-treated with lighter fluid. Use only a high grade plain charcoal or charcoal/wood mixture.
•
Do not use gasoline, kerosene or alcohol for lighting charcoal. Use of any of these or similar products could cause an explosion
possibly leading to severe bodily injury.
•
Never add charcoal lighting fluid to hot or even warm coals as flashback may occur causing severe burns.
•
Place smoker in an area where children and pets cannot come into contact with unit. Close supervision is necessary when
smoker is in use.
•
Do not leave smoker unattended when in use.
•
When adding charcoal and/or wood, use extreme caution and follow instructions in “Adding Charcoal/Wood During Cooking”
section of this manual.
•
To avoid overturning/spilling pan of hot liquid, never pull water pan bracket out more than 4”. Refer to the illustration in “Adding

PREPARATION FOR USE
& LIGHTING INSTRUCTIONS
PLACE THE SMOKER OUTDOORS ON A HARD, LEVEL, NON-COMBUSTIBLE SURFACE
AWAY FROM ROOF OVERHANG OR ANY COMBUSTIBLE MATERIAL. NEVER USE ON WOODEN OR OTHER SURFACES THAT
COULD BURN. PLACE THE SMOKER AWAY FROM OPEN WINDOWS OR DOORS TO PREVENT SMOKE FROM ENTERING YOUR
HOUSE. IN WINDY WEATHER, PLACE THE SMOKER IN AN OUTDOOR AREA THAT IS PROTECTED FROM THE WIND.
READ ALL SAFETY WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY
BEFORE OPERATING YOUR SMOKER.
Curing Your Smoker
Prior to your first use of the Brinkmann Vertical Smoker, follow the
instructions below carefully to cure your smoker. Curing your smoker will
minimize damage to the exterior finish as well as rid the smoker of paint
odor that can impart unnatural flavors to the first meal prepared on your
Brinkmann Vertical Smoker.
IMPORTANT: To protect your smoker from excessive rust, the unit must
be properly cured and covered at all times when not in use.
A cover for your Vertical Smoker may be ordered directly
from Brinkmann by calling 1-800-468-5252.
Step 1
Remove water pan from smoker. Lightly coat all interior surfaces of the
Vertical Smoker including cooking grills with vegetable oil or vegetable
oil spray. Do not coat charcoal pan or ash pan.
Step 2
Follow the instructions below carefully to build a fire. You may use
charcoal and/or a charcoal/wood mixture as fuel in the Vertical Smoker
(see “Adding Charcoal/Wood During Cooking” section of this manual).
WARNING:
Never use charcoal that has been pre-treated with lighter
fluid. Use only a high grade plain charcoal or charcoal/wood
mixture.
If using a Charcoal Chimney Starter, follow all manufacturer’s warnings
and instructions regarding the use of their product. You will need to
remove the lower cooking grills to allow enough clearance for a
Charcoal Chimney Starter. Start with 5 to 6 pounds of charcoal. This
should be enough charcoal to cook with, once the curing process has
been completed. When charcoal is burning strong, carefully place hot
coals in center of charcoal pan then replace cooking grills.
WARNING:
NOTE:
DO NOT use smoker without ash pan in place. DO NOT
attempt to remove ash pan while tray contains hot coals.
To extend the life of your smoker, make sure that hot coals and
wood do not touch the walls of smoker.
IF USING CHARCOAL CHIMNEY STARTER, PROCEED TO STEP 5
If you choose to use charcoal lighting fluid, ONLY use charcoal lighting
fluid approved for lighting charcoal. Do not use gasoline, kerosene,
alcohol or other flammable material for lighting charcoal. Follow all
manufacturer’s warnings and instructions regarding the use of their
product. Start with 5 to 6 pounds of charcoal. This should be enough
charcoal to cook with, once the curing process has been completed.
Place the charcoal in center of charcoal pan.

Step 3
Saturate charcoal with lighting fluid. With smoker box door open wait
2 to 3 minutes to allow lighting fluid to soak into charcoal. Store
charcoal lighting fluid safely away from the smoker.
Step 4
With smoker box door open, stand back and carefully light charcoal.
Allow to burn until covered with a light ash (approximately 20
minutes).
WARNING:
Charcoal lighting fluid must be allowed to completely burn off
prior to closing smoker box door (approximately 20
minutes). Failure to do this could trap fumes from charcoal
lighting fluid in smoker box and may result in a flash-fire or
explosion when door is opened.
Step 5
With coals burning strong, close the smoker box door. Allow the
charcoal to burn uninterrupted for 2 hours.
Step 6
Increase the temperature on the heat indicator. This can be achieved
by adding more charcoal and/or charcoal/wood mixture (see “Adding
Charcoal/Wood During Cooking” section of this manual). Maintain the
fire for 1 hour then allow unit to cool completely.
NOTE:
It is important that the exterior of the smoker is not scraped or
rubbed during the curing process.
IMPORTANT: To protect your smoker from excessive rust, the unit must
be cured periodically and covered at all times when not in
use. A cover can be ordered directly from Brinkmann by
calling 1-800-468-5252.
YOUR BRINKMANN VERTICAL SMOKER IS NOW CURED
AND READY FOR USE.

charcoal is burning strong, carefully place hot coals in center of
charcoal pan and replace cooking grills.
WARNING: DO NOT use smoker without ash pan in place. DO NOT
attempt to remove ash pan while tray contains hot coals.
NOTE:
To extend the life of your smoker, make sure that hot coals and
wood do not touch the walls of smoker
IF USING CHARCOAL CHIMNEY STARTER, PROCEED TO STEP 4
If you choose to use charcoal lighting fluid, ONLY use charcoal
lighting fluid approved for lighting charcoal. Do not use gasoline,
kerosene, alcohol or other flammable material for lighting charcoal.
Follow all manufacturer’s warnings and instructions regarding the
use of their product. Place 5 to 6 pounds of charcoal on charcoal pan.
Step 2
Saturate charcoal with lighting fluid. With smoker box door open wait
2 to 3 minutes to allow lighting fluid to soak into charcoal. Store
charcoal lighting fluid safely away from the smoker.
Step 3
With smoker box door open, stand back and carefully light charcoal
and allow to burn until covered with a light ash (approximately 20
minutes). Charcoal lighting fluid must be allowed to completely burn
off prior to closing smoker box door.
WARNING:
Failure to do this could trap fumes from charcoal lighting
fluid in smoker box and may result in a flash-fire or explosion
when door is opened.
Step 4
With coals burning well, carefully add wood chunks using long
cooking tongs (see “Flavoring Wood” and “Adding Charcoal/Wood
During Cooking” sections of this manual.)

Page 11
Depending on the weather, a full pan of charcoal will burn for
5-6 hours.
Step 5
Replace the water pan bracket and water pan.
WARNING:
To avoid overturning/spilling pan of hot liquid, never pull
water pan bracket out more than 4”. Refer to the illustration
in “Adding Water During Cooking” section of this manual.
Step 6
Carefully fill the water pan with warm water or marinade to 1“ below
the rim. A full pan holds 4 quarts / 1 gallon of water and will last
2-3 hours. Do not overfill and allow water to overflow from water pan.
1"
Step 7
Place food on the cooking grills in a single layer with space between
each piece. This will allow smoke and moist heat to circulate evenly
around all pieces. Close smoker box door.
Step 8
After 2-3 hours of cooking, check water and charcoal levels by
following instructions in the “Adding Water During Cooking and
Adding Charcoal/Wood During Cooking“ sections of this manual.
WARNING: Do not allow liquid in water pan to completely evaporate.
Always keep water in water pan as long as coals are still
burning. Water will evaporate and grease in water pan can
catch on fire.
Step 9
The ideal smoking temperature is between 175°F and 250°F. For large
cuts of meat, allow approximately one hour of cooking time per pound
of meat. Always use a meat thermometer to ensure food is fully
cooked before removing from smoker.
Step 10
Allow smoker to cool completely, then follow instructions in the
“After-Use Safety” and “Proper Care & Maintenance” sections of this
manual.
During the smoking process, avoid the temptation to open smoker
box door to check food. Opening the door allows heat and smoke to
escape, making additional cooking time necessary.
Smoke Cooking Tips
Food closest to the charcoal will cook and brown faster. Rotate food
midway through the cooking cycle. If food is excessively browned or
flavored with smoke, wrap food in aluminum foil after the first few
hours of smoking. This will allow food to continue cooking without
further browning or smoke flavoring.
CAUTION:
Always use oven mitts/gloves to protect your hands. Liquid
in water pan will be extremely hot and can scald or burn.
Always allow liquid to cool completely before handling. Do
not allow liquid to completely evaporate from water pan.

Flavoring Wood
5:51 PM
Page 12
To obtain your favorite smoke flavor, experiment by using chunks,
sticks or chips of flavor producing wood such as hickory, pecan, apple,
cherry, or mesquite. Most fruit or nut tree wood may be used for
smoke flavoring. Do not use resinous wood such as pine as it will
produce an unpleasant taste.
Wood chunks or sticks 3" to 4" long and 1" to 2" thick work best.
Unless the wood is still green, soak the wood in water for 30 minutes
or wrap each piece in foil and tear several small holes in the foil to
produce more smoke and prevent the wood from burning too quickly.
A lot of wood is not required to obtain a good smoke flavor. A
recommended amount for the Vertical Smoker is 5 to 6 wood chunks
or sticks. Experiment by using more wood for stronger smoke flavor
or less wood for milder smoke flavor.
Additional flavoring wood should not have to be added during the
cooking process. However, it may be necessary when cooking very
large pieces of food. Follow instructions and cautions in the “Adding
Charcoal/Wood During Cooking” section of this manual to avoid injury
while adding wood.
Regulating Heat
To maintain or increase temperature, more wood and/or charcoal may
need to be added during the cooking cycle. Follow instructions in
“Adding Charcoal/Wood During Cooking” section of this manual.
NOTE:
11
Dry wood burns hotter than charcoal, so you may want to
increase the ratio of wood to charcoal to increase the cooking
temperature. Hardwood such as oak, hickory, mesquite, fruit and
nut wood are an excellent fuel because of their burning rate.
When using wood as fuel, make sure the wood is seasoned and
dry. DO NOT use resinous wood such as pine as it will produce
an unpleasant taste.

Check the water level in water pan if the complete cooking process takes
longer than 2 hours. A low water level can be detected by listening for the
sound of water sizzling. Water can be added to the water pan through the
smoker box door. Use caution and follow instructions carefully.
WARNING:
Adding Water During
Cooking

and flame flare-ups.
Adding Charcoal/Wood
During Cooking
Step 1
Stand back and carefully open smoker box door allowing heat and
steam to escape away from your face. Use caution since flames can
flare-up when fresh air suddenly comes in contact with fire. Inspect the
charcoal level in pan.
Step 2
Wearing oven mitts/gloves, stand back a safe distance and use long
cooking tongs to lightly brush aside ashes on hot coals. Use cooking
tongs to add charcoal and/or wood to charcoal pan, being careful not
to stir-up ashes and sparks. If necessary, use your Charcoal Chimney
Starter to light additional charcoal and/or wood and add to existing fire.
WARNING:
Never add charcoal lighting fluid to hot or even warm coals
as flashback may occur causing severe burns.
