How to Buy A Smoker

When looking for a smoker that really imparts a true smokey flavor to beef and chicken, you may want to consider a charcoal smoker.

Many of the new charcoal smokers are just as efficient (if not better) than many of their electric or gas counterparts; and they are actually a little cheaper to use.

This week we review the Brinkmann 810-5305-6 Charcoal BBQ Smoker and Grill; an affordable and attractive charcoal smoker that does a remarkable job of smoking meat, fish, and chicken.

The Brinkmann 810-5305-6 Charcoal Smoker Features

The Brinkman 810-5305-6 Charcoal BBQ Smoker and Grill comes with…

  • An attractive stainless steel exterior
  • 2 chrome plated steel cooking grills
  • An embedded thermometer in the domed lid
  • Front hinged door for adding charcoal or water during the cooking process
  • Porcelain coated steel water and charcoal pans
  • A one year factory warranty

This Brinkmann BBQ Smoker and Grill is an exceptional value. We bought ours online for $150 and the shipping was included in the purchase price.

We received the smoker within three days, and assembly was complete in about 40 minutes. The instructions were pretty easy to follow, and once put together, we had a solid, stable smoker.

If you have a smaller patio or deck, then this is the smoker for you. It is a vertical smoker, and measures 17 x 17 x 32; so you can still operate this smoker and enjoy the summer afternoon on even the smallest of decks.

And it is a great looking smoker as well. The stainless steel design is not something you find in charcoal smokers or grills; and while the stainless exterior doesn’t add anything to its capabilities as a smoker; it does look nice on the deck.

The Brinkmann 810-5305-6 Smokes Quite Well

And it smokes as well as it looks. Just because it is a little less expensive than its competitors, don’t think this is a second rate smoker.

The two chrome plated cooking grills can accommodate up to 50 pounds of food, the side door allows you refill the water bowl and add charcoal in the midst of operation, and it is a tightly constructed unit; very little smoke leaks out of the domed lid while cooking.

And it really imparts the flavor of the smoking charcoal you choose. We have tested this with both apple flavored charcoal for fish and mesquite for beef; and both times the food came out moist and tender with a real smokehouse flavor from the charcoal.

The Brinkmann 810-5305-6 has an added thermometer built into the domed lid, and wooden handles all around.

We liked the wooden side handles on the Brinkmann charcoal smoker; and wonder why these are not on other charcoal smokers we have tried.

They make moving the smoker around the deck very easy without getting dirty; but make sure that the smoker is cool before you do so, as the wooden handles do get a little warm to the touch when the smoker is in operation.

The Brinkmann 810-5305-6 Charcoal Smoker Has Some Faults

Some the things we didn’t like about this smoker were very minor.

There are no temperature degree readings on the included thermometer; it merely indicates “Cold/Ideal/Hot” rather than the actual temperature in degrees (which we prefer).

And the water pan is situated well inside the smoker; so if you are refilling the water pan, you need to use caution to insure that you actually hit the water pan and don’t accidentally extinguish your charcoal.

But both the water and charcoal pans are easy to access via the handy side door if you do need to add charcoal or water while in operation. There is no need to remove any food or cooking grates to do so like we have seen with other charcoal smokers.

In summation, I’d say this is a great smoker for the money.

The Brinkmann charcoal smoker is one of the least expensive smokers available; but it smokes food just as efficiently if not better than its more expensive counterparts.

It looks sassy on the deck, doesn’t take up much space, is very portable, can handle up to 50 pounds of food at one time, and makes great smoked beef and chicken.

For the price, the Brinkmann 810-5305-6 charcoal smoker is hard to beat.

How Do Level Gauges Work?

Even though a level gauge is top priority when it comes to water storage tanks, an old wooden-rickety ladder, or utilizing empty soda bottles attached to a weight and many other temporary devices have sufficed up to now. But  they now have competition!.

Other methods to check the level in your tank allow for problems such as algae growth, or freezing. The more technical type of gauge require batteries or electricity. A familiar one that you may recognize (if you are a poly owner), is to ‘tap’ or ‘thump’ on the tank wall. Not too accurate and normally “one” will eventually revert to looking inside to estimate the level!

level gauges

As you know, it is always great to have a volunteer this will only last for so long as a “water-gauge”. Eventually for many, as the picture here suggests, the last volunteer and then it’s time to mend the ladder. If you have not heard before now of the most popular water-gauge coming out of Australia, get ready to pull down that old, unsafe, rickety ladder.

Send your soda bottles off to the recycler, no more tearing your jeans on the top wire coming down !

Ekotech from Australia, designed a level gauge that features simplicity and reliability, and by incorporating high quality materials, have sold over 50,000 units. Different to the majority of similar gauges that read back-to-front, the level gauge shows the actual water level in your tank.

This is so helpful for critical water level readings such as rainwater collection, especially if things are getting dry!!

Since its’ inception over 20 years ago, Yaktek has designed three other level gauges to compliment the Levetator. All working off the same principle of a simple weight/float system, and to suit a wide range of liquids.

All are built with high quality materials to guarantee reliability and longevity. The Dipstick and Levetator are readily available for ordering. Simply click on the gauge name that interests you to see product detail and pricing.

Professional Movers in Edmonton

Ask all Edmonton movers for references. Also, be sure to understand the coverage for loss or damage of your shipment. All licensed movers must provide liability for the value of goods they transport. There are different levels of liability that you need to be aware of. You need to understand the amount of protection provided and the additional charges that may apply.

Contact your local Edmonton department of consumer affairs and ask if there are any complaints registered about the movers you are considering. If the move is within your state, request the same information from your states transportation department and public utilities commission. Keep in mind that there are usually two sides to every story. A pattern of many complaints, however, is not a good sign.

To check the reliability of the Edmonton moving company you can contact the local Better Business Bureau (BBB) to inquire about the company’s complaint record and how these complaints were resolved. Ask your friends, family and neighbours for recommendations and advice on Edmonton movers.

Check for the DOT license number. All movers are required to be licensed however interstate movers are required to meet two additional criteria, 1. Publish their tariffs or price list and make it available to anybody who requests a copy. 2. Participate in a dispute settlement program and to offer neutral arbitration in the event a dispute arises. A dispute may arise in the event loss or damage happens to a shipment while in the hands of the mover.

edmonton movers

Ask the right questions, such as:

  • Does your company subcontract its moving services?
  • Which subcontractors could be used to move my home?
  • Will the contents of my home be on one truck the entire time?

What services are not listed on this bid, and what do you charge for them? What training do your movers and/or packers receive (especially for packing and moving fragile items)?

Decide in advance which goods will be shipped and which will be sold or given away. Then consider what you would like the mover to pack and what other type of additional services you may want. Remember that packing is always a separate bid from moving. An estimator should come to your home to create a bid. Moves that are 50 miles or less are usually priced by the hour. For long distance moves, estimates are based on weight, usually per 100 pounds.

Contact the movers you are considering for the job and ask for an estimate. Get involved in the estimating process and try to meet with the relocation consultant to survey your home and prepare a written estimate. Ask each prospective mover how long his or her estimate is valid for and question whether the estimate is binding or non-binding. Never accept an estimate over the phone and do not consider using a company that offers you this service.

To get your moving plans started, talk to your local Edmonton area mover today. Inform the mover of unusual factors of the move, on either end, so that your estimate can be most accurate. Make the mover aware of any problems that they may encounter at the delivery such as road access, parking problems, delivery time restrictions, street accessibility or if there are any stairs or elevators involved. The cost of your move could increase for any such occurrences. Try to reserve a “parking space” for the moving van if your new home is on a congested street. If the moving crew has to carry your load more than 75 feet from the moving van to your door you may be charged for excessive distance. Some neighbourhoods may prohibit trucks over a certain weight.

The driver will offload your possessions into a smaller vehicle and the charge for that could be quite high. Advise the relocation consultant if you anticipate this situation arising. In addition, advise the consultant if you are moving to a high-rise building where an elevator reservation is required. This can cause problems for the delivery schedule if the mover does not know about this in advance and additional charges would likely apply.

Custom Banners at Melbourne

Custom banners became popular around the 17th century in Europe. Also, prior to that, it is believed that over 3000 years ago custom banners were already popular in Asia and the rest of the Orient. Today, the main purpose of custom banners is to advertise or note the occurrence of a special event.

custom banners


Custom Flags Sydney back to when armies used them as identification in battlefields. Throughout History they have also been used as a means for communicating and signalling in long distance situations. It is believed that this trend started in the Far East (Punjab lovers. com). Ships are also known for having used custom banners to identify each other at sea during times of conflicts, as well as a form of communication.

Ancient and Modern Times

Ancient armies used custom banners to identify themselves not only in battle situations. Armies also used these instruments to identify which king or country they were fighting for. Today, modern armies use their respective country’s flag plus battalions and brigades all have their own specific custom flag and flagpole as a sign of pride as well as for identification purposes.

In the 17th century, naval fleets and pirates used custom banners Melbourne in the same manner and reason as their land counterpart did – in battle. Custom banners were used to differentiate friend from foe, as well as for communicating among themselves at sea in the per-telegraph age. Today, ships use custom banners Melbourne to denote, primarily, the country where the vessel has been registered.


Other uses, currently, involve using custom banners as a very inexpensive manner in which to advertise by calling attention to product or place of business. Also, they are used to advertise your location.

By adding written messages such as “OPEN”, “YEAR END SALE, etc., you are able to become even more specific in your advertising. Think of what it would cost you to run a full colored ad in your local newspaper.

Custom banners Melbourne normally are coordinated to go with each other and according to specific requirements. For example, you would never place a feather custom flag on a Franklin custom flagpole.

The best custom banners for this endeavor are the rotating pole design with ground sleeve, the 1”diameter display pole, the collapsible flagpoles and lawn mate flagpoles.

Other Uses

Custom banners are used for other situations aside from advertising. There are custom flags that are used by scuba divers, checked flags in racing and religious banners in churches, synagogues and places of worship.

Another form of using custom banners is for announcing a celebration such as a new baby, a birthday or anniversary. These are normally placed on your front yard or hung from the roof in front of your home.
