Well I must say it served me for 33+ years, but this last year saw no use. Since we are designing a new cooking layout for the Pole Barn, I must finally part with my old ECB. This is where I got my start. Can't even think how many Smoked Turkey's, Butts, Chickens, Ribs and whatever went thru this Smoker. R.I.P. 'ol gal. Lot's of fond memories.
