Hi I am Anthony and I just moved to Michigan

  1. Let's see,

    I am Anthony (you can call me BoneyTee). I am from Texas I just moved to the Troy MI area. As far as smoking goes I am a definate NEWBIE. I use a Brinkman Gourmet Charcoal smoker. I have smoked Baby back and pork ribs as well as chicken. (Well I should say I have tried to) I am having trouble maintaining the heat. I just picked up the smoker one day and just tried it. My dad is a Tean (has a large PIT in the backyard) he tries to explain it to me but I feel it is harder to learn with the Brinkman. Like today I am trying to smoke to racks of ribs...We'll see how it goes. Let's see I am married with 13 yr old twin boys and I LOVE to cook. I am just trying my hand at the smoking thing now

    Welcome to SMF from just up I-75...Lake orion. You will need to get an expanded metal charcoal basket for that puppy... altho just using lump charcoal will help. Briquettes suck. If that's all ya ]have..keep all the bottom vents open..Hmmm is that the ECB folks? Not sure if you HAVE bottom vents... but airflow to the coals is essential...

    Enjoy, and we'll help all we can!

    Welcome :)

    head over to the charcoal smoker section for mods on that thing..
    i think your first steps gonna be drilling holes in that charcoal pan for better airflow

    Boney T -- Welcome from Plymouth - across town west of you towards Ann Arbor. (AC Green fan here too)

    This place will have you rolling nicely along just read and ask questions. Get a wind break or a welding blanket for that ECB so you can smoke through the winter here. :)
