The Brinkmann Trailmaster cover
 

This grill cover is discontinued by the manufacturer. After a lot of research I found that the Char Broil Oklahoma Joe grill cover fits the Brinkmann Trailmaster just as good. 
Will be writing a review very soon, but here is a link to the >> Oklahoma Joe grill cover <<<

Might fit other grills also but it is designed for this particular Brinkmann smoker.
So if you think after reading this review it might be a good cover for your smoker make sure to check the size and measurements real good.
First I was not planning on reviewing this grill cover when I looked at the price. My initial thoughts were that the price was so low that it could not be a good quality. But I changed my mind and you can read why in this Brinkmann grill cover review.

Since it was mentioned that this cover also fits other grills it is important to fit as nice as possible you should check your grill measurements real good if you are planning on buying this cover for an other grill.

Remember that all grill covers are made on a sewing machine by hand. This can affect the actual size a little since it is still a kind of hand made.
 

Brinkmann trailmaster cover customer reviews

In order to provide you with up to date and relevant information we visit many sites and forums to come up with the right advice.

This cover will fade when use in direct sunlight after a while and some people mentioned that because of the direct sunlight it became brittle.

It fits great on the smoker it is made for and keeps the rain and snow off. The Velcro straps at the bottom part keep it in place and prevents the wind from getting under the cover.

It would have been better if the cover was a little longer. Now it does not completely reaches to the bottom and this makes it possible that rains splatters up at the bottom part or the legs.

This cover will not fit to good if you not take your shelf of the grill according to many people and for some people that was a real bad point. They would like to cover to fit the grill better with the shelf attached to it. Some one even wrote that it did not fit at all with the shelf attached. He had to take it off every time.

Someone mentioned that you could not put it on a hot grill. In my opinion there is no grill cover that is made to put on a hot grill. You always have to wait until the grill cooled down.

Our opinion of the Brinkmann Trailmaster grill cover

(Back to Top)
Taken in consideration the affordable price of the Briankmann trailmaster cover and the average customer review of 4.5 out of 5 stars this is a decent grill cover
I think before buying a grill cover you should think about your weather and where your grill is stored in the winter time.
If you use your grill year around you might want to look for a grill cover with a little more weight and heavier.
If you store your grill in a shed or garage in the winter I think this cover will hold for a while.

I have read two opinions about how well it fits withe the front shelve on the grill.
Some mentioned that they had to remove the shelf and others mentioned no problem with the shelf attached to the smoker.
This proofs that these grill covers are made by hand and that a little difference in sewing it can make the difference in a good fit or having to remove the front shelf.

When you live in a very rainy area I would look for a cover that is a little longer and covers the legs and wheels better to prevent rust on the lower rack. The problem is to find a cover this size with the smoke stack on the right place. I would place the grill and cover out of the rain and direct sun after using if possible. With the wheels on the grill it is easy to move.
If you, however do not get so much rain this Brinkmann smoker cover will do fine.

If it does not bother you that the color fades after a while and it turns more gray then black this is not a bad cover. If you are more concerned about the look also this might not be the best choice.

Overall I would like to give the Brinkmann trailmaster cover a good rating, but do not expect it to last years and years. I guess with a littel luck and after reading about it this grill cover might hold out for 3 year max.

I have also read that it does not always seem to come waterproof. Maybe spraying it with a waterproof spray like used for tents will improve the overall quality.

This is as far as I could find the only grill cover that fits the Brinkmann Trailmaster.
