I've had an ECB for a few years and never really had much success with it. A bit of research on here and I now have a list of ideas to try and MOD it to see if I can revive it. I have just purchased an AMNPS and whilst it looks ideal to cold smoke with in the ECB I was not sure about hot smoking. I have read that a charcoal ECB burns up too much oxygen so there is not enough left for the AMNPS. How about if I MOD my ECB in such a way that I could position the AMNPS below the the coal tray? Would that then allow the oxygen being sucked in to get to the AMNPS first producing smoke before it hits the heat or would this stiffle the coals? Any thoughts?
