Hello all, I was wondering how many of you out there have modded ECBS and what you have done to regulate the temps. The first couple of hours on mine is a rollercoaster. My ECB wants to level at 200 and I can't get it to stay at the 225 temp. Today for instance I smoked brisket. (My first one) and it turned out last than spectacula, but I believe I know the problem. I have flairs at the beginning of the smoke. My temps spiked to 500degs when I tried the minion method. Before you ask I let my royal oak lump charcoal ash over till no visible was there. I went poured the coals on waited about an 20 minutes, and the temp was 225, but than everything started on fire and stayed t 500for a good hour. Are there mods that will help maintain an internal temp of 250? The Mods I have done; Holes in the charcoal pan. Legs moved to the outside. Temp gauge installed.
