Hi guys! Newbie here. After digging through these forums for almost a week, I'm planning to pick up an ECB from Home Depot today ($39!) and do some of the basic mods provided in Randy Lee's great ECB Mods write-up, which was referenced in Day 4 of Jeff's Smoking Basics eCourse: http://www.randyq.addr.com/ecb/ecbmods.html I had two questions here. Can someone please enlighten me? First, Modification 1 is to put rods (legs) on the charcoal bowl, and install the main unit's legs on the OUTSIDE. This would create a free-floating charcoal bowl that is not attached to the unit at all. Is this to provide access to the charcoal bowl by lifting the entire unit up and away from it? For example, to have full access to the charcoal pan to do a second Minion Method load-up (which I understand is a rare event)? Or am I totally misunderstanding this? Otherwise I don't see the point of this mod. Sounds kind of dangerous lifting the whole unit, meat and water and all, up off of the floating charcoal bowl, but no risk, no reward! Second, Modification 2 - Improve firepan airflow, shows charcoal rails, but there is no mention of how these came to be. Is this something you can pick up at a hardware store? Do you have to fabricate it out of an old pie cooling rack and some chewing gum? Little confused here. This is a picture: Thanks guys! Can't wait to start smoking!
