Hey folks, New user here. Name is Steve, and I live South of Tampa on the Gulf. I'm new to smoking, and have an ECB Gourmet barbeque. I'm getting tasty results But I seem to be fussing with it more than I think I should be. Will be heading over to the charcoal smoker board shortly to post a question. As for right now, I have a smoked Meatloaf coming down the home stretch. Hope it tastes as good as it smells. Let's see. my set up is a Brinkman Gourmet Charcoal smoker (Vertical.) I've done the modification to install a grate so the coals can breath, installed a real thermometer in the hood, and added handles to the coal tray so I can lift or shake it easier hot or cold.
