bbq ready!

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by natureman, Jul 26, 2009.

  1. hello all!
    spent the last few days nursing a pinched nerve reading up here...information overload!
    i was all set to get a chargriller smokin pro from lowe's but decided on the ECB gourmet instead, i have a gasser and a kettle grill (made some fine ribs and beer can chicken on it) and with a smoker i am ready for anything!
    i actually first came here after reading about the bacon explosion, not knowing that it is really a fattie...
    right now the only mod on my ECB is the charcoal pan mod, will wait and see if i really need to add a vent on the bottom...eventually i may construct a UDS anyway...
    now with the patio cleared off and the 'Q station ready just two things needed:
    get healthy, and get smokin!
    will post first smoke in ECB along with the mods...

    what should i smoke first? ABT? fattie? turkey? chicken?........

    PS: kettle grill is KIA! the leg sockets broke off, 'ole fireball is out of service for a while...thinking of bolting metal conduit legs to grill...aint pretty but it should work...

    Welcome aboard. Around here, it's sort of a tradition to make a fatty first on a new smoker. Good luck with the Gourmet I have one, and several others here do too. And, there are a gazillion Brinkman owners here. Most of the bullet models are similar. Good luck with old Fireball. You may want to take a peek on Craigslist. I got a barely used 1 yr old Weber 22 1/2 for 20 bucks.

    Welcome! And I would have gone with the chargriller W SFB. Then you could do a fatty, ABTs chicken and turkey all at once...

    Nonetheless I'm thinking about getting an ECB if I can't find a 30 gal drum for a mini UDS. Sometimes you just cook for one.

    I think fatties and some chicken leg quarters would be great, at least that's probably what I would do.
    Best thing about healing and smoked meat is that eating smoked meat will preserve you [​IMG]

    Welcome to the site, have fun and happy smokes.
