Ordered one of these to use as a tabletop grill/smoker for a couple of steaks, etc. Anyone had experience with one, Any advice appreciated.

Have the mid sized one, works great, doesn't take a lot of charcoal to get hot and cook long enough to cook a steak. Burgers, chicken,and fish turn out great. Have also cooked turkey breast using the snake method for the charcoal for longer cooking time. I think you could cook one on the small one. Definitely not fancy or high tech but gets it done.

Great grills.

I recommend making a DIY charcoal basket with legs (I use stainless steel bolts/nuts as legs) to get the coals off the floor of the Old Smokey for a cleaner/hotter/more efficient burn.

I've had the 22" one for 3 years now. No charcoal.....converted to an electric pellet smoker using the 12" TUBE for pellets, Holds heat well, cooks well. Gotta get some PVC pipe to lift it a little.

I take it that the pvc is to make it taller? Did you use the element sold for the Brinkman type cylinder cooker?

Don't know....it's one of the squareish types with temp control.
