I'm a newbi, been on here many times just finally decided to join. My neighbor so left me his old Brinkman Smoke'n Grill, im still a new at smoking, so i figured i'd take it better then buying one. I found out it is missing, the grate, thermometer, and water pan. Was wondering would it be worth buying the parts and keeping it, or just buy a whole new one. I have read on here that the ECB is ok for beginners, which I am. Appreciate any advise.
