    Hey people, just found this forum. Looking forward to spring when i can get outside and fire up the smoker again. I have been smoking meat for around 4 years now. Started with a brinkman. Now have a chargriller pro offset. Have plans to start building a smoker out of field rock this spring. Will keep people posted on progress.

    Give me a break guys i am from England, not used to this kinda cold yet. Now rain don't bother me none [​IMG]

    Been looking around other threads and found something i may HAVE to try this weekend. Texas Hunter has pictures of a "fatty". THAT is something i have to try and cook. Last summer i did smoke up a pork loin stuffed with cream cheese and garlic and wrapped in bacon.

    yup tee, you have to try a fatty-tis a all american snack-like your fish&chips-can put anything in them.

    Cool, guessing you just roll out your meat, put whatever in the middle then roll to make the "fatty" huh?

    Thanks for all the info and welcomes. I have some questions and not enough time (at work) to get into them. Been using a smoker for a while but has been a long learning curve.

    I'm going to try doing some mods to my Char Griller Pro that i found on here. Was thinking it was just me not being able to use the damn thing. After seeing the mods it all kinda makes sense now [​IMG]

    Will definitely try the whole fatty thing. Have an idea for doing one out of italian sausage with some minced jalepnos and maybe some pepper jack for starters.

    Welcome to the Boards! I've been smoking here in Buffalo this winter. I'm definately going to have to come up with some type of windblock. The wind slows down the process a bit.

    I have carried the ECB into a garage that has no door on it before. Problem is we have a car permanently parked in there right now.
