  1. Hello, I'm currently modifying a Brinkmann smoke n grill (ECB) and I haven't decided where to mount an aftermarket temp gauge..any thoughts? I've seen them on multiple location ie. side, top of lid, etc

    The closer you can get it to the meat without touching the better.
  3. Sounds like a couple of my high school girlfriends.
  4. Tonight I put my ECB together and got it all squared away. My angle for this smoker was cheap and my mission was accomplished...I found a weber smokey joe last weekend at a yard sale for 5$ (owner used it once for a tail gate) and I found the ECB at Walmart that had been dropped. The box was damaged and the side had a small dent. After speaking with the manager I got it for 15$. The gasket and temp gauge were the only other add on and lowes is having a sale on charcoal right now ( 40lb for 9$)..all in all I've spent $55 for the smoker and 80lbs of charcoal. Tomorrow I'll b saddling up a 3lb chuck roast to get my feet wet. [​IMG]
  7. Did my first smoke ever on my franken-smoker..still have lots to learn but after 4 hour low and slow I got some great results with hickory chunks. Meat is a chuck roast I had in the freezer and I was shocked how well a 55$ smoker did. When I opened the freezer pack the roast was two pieces.. This is the smaller section I sliced up
