Well I am almost done with my first smoke 2 briskets 2 pork loins 2 breakfast fatties tray of ATB's Everything was going well. The big issue I had with my ECB is the smoke died quickly. I soaked the wood chips, small chips, in water overnight. I tried right on the heating element. Smoked great but cooked away fast. I tried in a tuna can lined with foil. Took forever to get smoke and smoked out fast. I tried in a foil packet. That seemed to work best but I had to replace them every 30 minutes or so. Suggestions? All the swapping I think really prolonged this smoke. Some small cuts really took a lot longer than I would have guessed. Qview Coming soon. The ABT were awesome. They really won't last long. The wife took them and said I should put them inside to keep them safe from the bugs but she gave me a look that made think the bugs were the least of their concern.
