  1. What's up folks? I'm new to this scene. I've been grillin for a few months. Today I paid $20 for a used Brinkmann smoker and don't know haow to use it. It has a bowl on the bottom, 1 in the middle and the rack on top? Any ideas ?? Lol

    Greetings!
    I'm not familiar with that smoker but I'd just like to say welcome to the SMF. I'm using a stainless steel big block GOSM gas/wood smoker and a Silver Smoker stick burner and loving the results. However, with all the talk about the UDS (Ugly Drum Smoker), I'm seriously considering building one. It just seems to me that with all those terrific juices dropping from the meat that the flavor would have to be enhanced by the juices dropping onto coals and then the flavor fed back into the meat. I'm thinking that it might be worth the cost of building a UDS anyway. But I digress ....... again, welcome to the SMF and I wish you well in your new hobby. Take it from me ...... it's adicting and even the mistakes are usually pretty good. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Don't know which ECB ya have. But,
    The bottom bowl is for the charcoal (may want to drill 8- 1/2 in . holes arond the bottom to improve air flow to your coals).
    The next bowl up is the water pan.
    (line this one w/ foil for easy cleaning).
    You can put water , apple juice or any non flamable liquid that you want to flavor your meat w/ in this pan.
    Most ECB i have seen have two racks for the meat.( but i aint seen everything) so the rack is to place your meat on to smoke.
    Make sure and take jeffs free 5 day online smoking course it will teach ya the basics.
    Good Smokes, Bob
