I was wondering if anyone else uses one of these, and could give me some tips. I smoked some meatballs tonight, and they came out really good, I was real lucky, lol. I did it with out knowing the temp, no thermometer. I have one but it was too big, and I remembered too lat about my Mav. ET-73. It seemed to do alright, as far as I could tell, thought there seem to be alot of smoke to start with, and I was really suprized I didn't have a problem with it going out(It really needs a raised expanded metal charcoal basket). Anyway I would be real greatful for any tips and advise.
