Hi all, just joined the forum from the outskirts of Philadelphia. I bought a ECB on a whim a few weeks ago thinking it would be a good smoker to learn the art of charcoal grilling. (I have never used charcoal grills before!) I haven't had time to use it yet, but I have been studying the threads here and some You Tube videos to complete some mods on the thing. I still have a couple mods to go, and hope to find time next weekend for my first smoke! I'm sure I'll have a ton of questions about my new endeavor, and I look forward to hearing your responses!
