    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 [​IMG] 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.

    Thanks everyone, for the warm welcome!

    Input? Well, as a newbi smoker it may be some time before I can help much.

    Oh, well, here's a pearl I picked up tonight....... I made a smoked meatloaf tonight. All the recipes said to make a few small loaves and put them on foil or a baking pan. I laughed as I put my mixture into my official Brinkman acessory "Meatloaf pan." However, I wasn't laughing when it came back out later in about 10 pieces. D'Ohh! I even used Pam to coat the silly thing. No harm done. We had delicious Meat chunks instead of Meatloaf. I'll just use the meat loaf pan for veggies from now on.

    Since the meatloaf is so broken up, it looks like the leftovers are going into tomorrows' Spaghetti Sauce.
