    Yes I am a grandma to 8 and a newbie to really smoking meat but I have given a it a try a few times.  I first tried it in my 18" weber grill and a slab of ribs.  Turned out ok, but I knew I could do better.  So I bought an ECB to try my hand.  I found instructions for mods on the Brinkman site and incorporated some of them but today I found even more I want to do to make it a little better.  I will probably want to get a better smoker in a year or two.  I also own a Char-griller duo.  I don't think I will use that for smoking though, strictly grilling.  I've been lurking around for a few days and there is so much info here that I decided to join so I can learn as much as my brain can handle.  Thanks in advance for all the great lessons and info.  Weather permit, I will be working on my ECB this weekend to make it a better smoker.
  2. Welcome Grannie,

Very effecient on coals too...................................................................................................[​IMG]

    Thanks for all the welcomes.  This site is awesome.  I already took Jeff's e-course and will be making more mods on my ECB this weekend. 

    SmokeyG I totally agree [​IMG]

    JimF, good to see another Marylander on the boards,  I am so ready to improve my smoking skills and can't wait to try my hand at fatties and ABTs.[​IMG]
