    Hey Mike. Can't speak for anyone else, but between Football, Baseball and Hockey and the NASCAR race a few weeks back, I have been pretty busy. Got a cord of firewood in that needed to be stacked and have a few repairs to make around the house. 

    Hoping to fire up the ECB next weekend for a couple of fatties, two meatloafs and a load of chili. How about you. Nice avatar from Kentucky Speedway. Have you ever been there? 

    I grew up in Cincy, but they built it after I moved North.

    My avatar is my on line sim race car. We race online with the Stock Car Evolution game. There is also iRacing. Our website is www.racingforjesus.com. Where Jesus is 1st and racing is second.

    I plan on doing 2 8lb Pork Butts this Wednesday. We're going camping thursday.friday,saturday and plan on taking most of the pork for our family and whoever else would like some. I'm looking foward to pulled pork taco. :). I'll be purchasing the pork from GFS. They come 2 butts per package @ $ 1.37 lb. I'll be using my soup cans for smoke and lump charcoal for heat. I was hoping to locate some apple woods slivers but all I can find is chips. I'll be taking some pics of the cook.

    I'm back in action, smoking took the back seat for the last six weeks while I moved to Alaska, got a place to live, etc.

    Goes to show what I know?

    Didn't know there was an ECB group?

    Retired mine many years ago.

    Had some great smokes off that little unit.

    Getting a little confused now?

    My idea of an ECB is:

    The REAL cheapies from years back.

    Is everybody using ECB to refer to anything Brinkman these days?

    Just a thought?

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Venture, welcome to the group. All are welcome, but basically any bullet smoker made by Brinkmann fits the bill. But the group is really open to any and all!

    Hey Hardwater. When I saw your post about moving to AK, I was like.....What??? I am retired from the military. I should have figured it out. I spent 7 years in Army and then retired out of the AF Reserve in 2002. Thanks for serving our country! BTW have you run across any of the AK smoke shacks we see on tv from time to time?

    You're welcome, I appreciate your service as well!

    I haven't ran across any smoke shacks yet, I wanted to build one, but an insane housing market has me living in base housing.

    Well, that's ok as long as they let you run your smoker? Now all you need is a nice snow machine and a power auger? I see ya ice fishing in your avatar... Smoked fish? At least in base housing you aren't paying the utility bills! 

    I lived in base housing when I was stationed in Germany. I had enough of that.

    Yep, I can run my smoker, no issues there.  

    I have a good 2 stroke auger.  I'm all set there.  In the market for a snow machine, I'll probably buy one in the next month.  

    I have smoked fish a few times, but nothing too serious.  Next summer, when the salmon start running, I'll be sure to smoke a lot more fish.

    Sounds like you will be ready to go. I have never been to AK, but from what I can see, just like everywhere else you have to respect your surroundings and not take any crazy chances and you will have a lot of fun there.

    Something that hasn't change; el cheapo is still the cheapest smoker out there. Is the entry level unit, people go from there to the WSM, or they turn to electric.ECB is fun for some time but then, well, life moves on.

    I still use my ECB about once a month.  I converted it to gas a few years ago, and I never went back to charcoal.

    I try to get a little fat dripping onto the wood chunks and the small cast iron skillet that holds them.  It adds some nice grill flavor.

    Have fun, LV!  Modding the ECB is almost as much fun as cooking with it!
