I smoke meats throughout the year so my Brinkmann Trailmaster Limited Edition Smoker sees many different kinds of weather. I also happen to live in the White Mountains of New Hampshire so our colder seasons can be pretty severe.
We all know how important it is to have a quality smoker cover. Well, this past winter I foolishly was removing snow from my Brinkmann smoker and the cover ripped right at the area where the stock thermometer juts out of the smoker.
That led to a pretty big semicircular hole that I had to cover with a bunch of duct tape. The duct tape worked OK for a while but eventually the adhesive wore off and it came loose leaving a gaping hole and the metal of my smoker exposed to the elements.
So I went searching online for another cover for my Brinkmann Trailmaster Limited Edition and what I found was some very expensive options. My recollection was that to replace the exact cover that I had on the unit it would cost roughly $85. So I waited a bit and kept searching online for more options.
I eventually came across the GrillPartsPro Premium Trailmaster Cover which had some really good reviews at a fraction of the original price I found for a cover for this smoker. It is made of strong polyester construction with a water-resistant coating. It certainly came as advertised. It also will fit both CharBroil and Brinkmann smokers which is a big advantage.
Check out my youTube video below which shows my old cover with the hole and the new cover on my Brinkmann smoker on my back deck.
