Nothing but problems from the ECB this weekend; #1) Underestimated the effect of the wind on my cooking temps. Temp was jumping all over the place between 165* - 240* and my homemade wind break did nothing as the wind was swirling all over the place. #2) Had smoke leaking out from every possible seam where the 3 parts stack onto each other, any ideas on how to seal this thing up better would be greatly appreciated. #3) The most frustrating part of this experience was that the wood kept catching fire. I'm using a mini afterburner which has a spot to lay a narrow tin can (like the kind asparagus comes in) and you put your wood inside the can & lay it on the burner. After about 30 seconds, woods on fire and temp spikes up. Put out the fire, jam a bunch of alum foil inside, thinking that would keep it from igniting, wait 30 seconds, damn things on fire again. Again, any suggestions on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated. End result is I was able to get 2 hours of smoke on my ribs before throwing in the towel and finishing them in the oven. My guests still raved that they were awesome ribs, which I guess should be the ultimate goal. If I would have had a frag grenade at that specific point in time, that ECB would be no more. Now I'm debating on trying to 'fix' all the issues with the ECB or just saying to hell with it and pulling the trigger on a new CharGriller Outlaw.
