Two years ago I started with the ECB, did some basic mods but knew I needed a better way to control the air flow: The link below is the build: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/125062/smoken-grill-ecb-basic-mods-2012-q-view#post_1128918 This summer I acquired the bottom off a Gourmet and then added the Pitmaster-IQ110. I raised the grate and build a firebox. I used the connection 'bowl' supplied and piped off the side. I made wooden risers for clearance. I added an aluminum support to hold the control unit. This 'contraption' will hold steady temps for MANY hours. Did a boston butt recent;y, hence the Q-view: Enjoy.
