Good morning everyone, I am new to the forum but not to smoke. I got an ECB about 5 years ago as a present and I was hooked. I smoked (well tried) every thing I could on it. Since then I have designed and built some of my own smokers. My first one was a 55 gallon drum and after some extra modifications it ran great. Until one day my girlfriend's co-worker asked me to smoke a brisket. Well that gave me a reason to build my next smoker. That I made from an old 40 gallon air tank I had laying around. But after smoking two turkeys on it last thanksgiving, I decided it was a little too small. So my latest build is a 3ft diameter by 5ft long reverse flow. I will be posting pictures of both "back yard" builds in the photos. I hope to learn a lot from you guys because I am still learning.. Happy Smoking!
