FAQ Subject: Trouble with the Brinkman Grill King


Recently I purchased one of the largest size Broilking by Brinkman. On New Year's Day I tried doing a 23lb. Turkey. I had trouble maintaining 325°F; it kept going up to 400°F and then down to 250°F. Needless to say the meat was done(burnt) on the outside and was drying out on the inside in less than three hours. (normal cooking time is 5-6 hrs.) I did not get a manuel with the grill and would like to know where I can get one. And can you give me some advice on cooking large chunks of meat with this grill.

Hi Fin,
I doubt that there is a manual. If the Rinkydinkybrinky folk knew anything about grilling they would improve their designs and quality. "The Great American Barbecue & Grilling Manual" does have chapters on how to select, operate and maintain gas grills. You can check it out in The Barbecue Store at

Personally, I would never try to cook a 23 lb. turkey in a gas grill that did not have a thermostat and, for all practical purposes, cooking a turkey in a gas grill is no different from cooking one in a gas oven.

Once it is adjusted. the grill should hold at any given temperature except when wind or water is having a variable influence. What I would do is put a gallon of water (8.33 lbs) in the grill, turn it on and adjust to 350°F and allow it to become stable. Then record the temperature at 10 minute intervals. If there is fluctuation of more than 10°F I would consider the valve faulty and return it for a refund.

Click into "According to Smoky" and read "Choosing a Gas Grill."
Have fun,
