    Good afternoon all.

    As the title says I am an Englishman living in Mexico.

    I am currently using the ECB!

    I would say my level of smoking is basic. I have smoked bacon, sausages and chicken. All came out well...I think...well nobody was sick after!

    I must be honest and say that I am starting to lose interest in smoking due to my ECB. The problem I have is that there is not much of a choice here.

    My name is Kevin and I am looking forward to learning from everyone on this forum.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Kevin. As mentioned before, don't get discouraged...lots of helpful folk here ready to get you through this...  [​IMG]

    There are some mod's that people have done to the ECB that greatly improves their ability. Just do a search on this and if you aren't in a position to upgrade to a new smoker, you may want to see if these would help you.

    [​IMG]  Senor Kevin! Whereabouts in Mexico are you living? I have an English ex-pat friend who's lived in Puerto Vallarta for the past 30 years. He doesn't smoke himself, but knows all the good BBQ places.

    Would like to know more information about your smoking, maybe we can help you out.  What kind of wood are you using, etc. If you're smoking bacon, I think you are already a step ahead of most people down there.

    Apple is a good all-around wood to use. Plenty of it where I live.

    I talked with a pitmaster in Puerto Vallarta. He can't get apple wood, but does very well with the local mango wood. Makes for some of the best bbq I've ever tasted.
