    So, I've technically been a member for about a year and a half but I've posted a total of 2 times, moved 800 miles and just recently realized how I doubt that I've ever smoked anything properly even though I've made several rounds of ribs, fatties, ABTs, smoked meatballs, and a couple of briskets. 

    My 2 most recent smokes were months apart, both were disasters and my ECB has mainly been used as a grill in that time frame. I am purchasing a WSM sometimes in the coming month or so and am planning on getting back into the groove. I also realized after trying to find out why my disasters occurred that I have been using very poor methods and am going to work to correct that as well.

    My 2 disasters were a burnt fattie that happened when I let the water go out of my ECB, then the drippings caught fire and perfectly blackened the entire thing, not to mention just about ruined the ECB. I also encountered ribs that would not get done as I could not get my temperature up to where it needed to be and keep it there. 

    So now I am crawling back hoping to re-learn how to do anything right. I at least now understand the minion method and that I shouldn't need to throw cold charcoal onto the top of hot coals every 45 minutes.

    So, just thought I would re-introduce myself and say that I am back to start poking around more to figure out and learn what I thought I used to know.
