The Bottom Line
This model has been discontinued. This unit is similar too, but more limited than the Masterbuilt 7 in 1 Smoker/Cooker. Further, the Brinkmann Corporation has gone out of business. If you own this product, you will have to get support from the store you bought it at.
The Brinkmann Smoke'N Grill is a basic little unit designed to convert between a grill and a smoker. The grilling abilities are pretty good on the small cooking space, but the smoking abilities of this little gas powered unit are actually quite good.
If you want a little smoker (that can smoke up to 50 pounds of meat) then this is a good unit to look into. This is a simple to operate gas smoker that gives you good barbecue without a lot of fuss.

Guide Review - Brinkmann Smoke'N Grill
Basically, this is a small gas powered grill (lava rocks included) built on a tripod. Add a steel smoking chamber on the top and you have a good little smoker that is easy to use and capable of producing good barbecue without a lot of work. The temperature control is good and you can basically load up this unit and not worry about it (though I wouldn't leave it alone for long).
As a grill, this is a little limited unit because of the low powered burner but as a smoker, it can generate the heat you need without too much trouble.
All in all, this is a good little smoker and if you can get a good deal on it, you shouldn't regret it. However, there are better units out there for the price.
