Greeting from New Brunswick, Canada

  1. Hi all,

    New smoker here. Been thinking about getting into it for a while and finally bit on a Master Chef ECB from Canadian Tire (start small, then go big).

    I actually have my first batch on the smoker right now, it's only chicken legs and thighs, can post picture later.

    Here's the smoker I bought to get started with: http://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/masterchef-vertical-smoker-0851013p.html

    If all goes well, I'll upgrade later this summer or next spring.

    I've already mad a few modifications before starting, like adding a 2nd thermometer to the middle ring and cutting a vent in the ash pan (but I think I need it bigger and with a damper), and mounting the smoker up on cement blocks so that I could add another pan to catch the ash in, plus being tall, I don't have to bend over as far.

  2. Nothing wrong with an ECB, started with one myself. Glad you joined up, looking forward to some pictures of your smokes.

  3. Bit late with pictures, but here we go.


    All put together, pre-mods


    I made a base for it, levelled it and added a catch pan.


    Chicken in the brine


    Coated in Alton Brown's Rub #9 (maybe a little too much, but no one complained)


    The little smoker that could hard at work. Used Mesquite wood for flavour.


    All done. Though I had to put them in the oven for ~10 minutes to get the internal temperature up as I couldn't get my smoker to go above 175, and after 2.5 hours, I was hungry.


    So tender and juicy...

  6. No, my parents weren't that cool

    It's a bland of first initial and last name, and has ended up being my user name at almost every it job I've had.
