  1. Hey folks,

    A warm salutation from the town where the British surrendered!

    I'm a total newbie with an ECB.  I've grilled on her twice since I picked 'er up at WallyWorld, but haven't been able to try smokin' anything yet because the darn thing was missin a lower support bracket.

    As a n00b I think I'll start simple--I'd like to smoke up a chicken and maybe even some salmon.  

    I've been doing a lot of reading, and already started moddin' my ECB.

    Any input or help is appreciated!

    Best wishes,

  2. Hey Sean thanks for coming by and please be welcome. A lot of us started on

    an ECB, it's a great way to realize if you like smoking or not. I started with a

    chicken and haven't looked back.

    All the folks here are eager to help and hear about your adventures.

    Again WELCOME...James
  3. Hey James, 

    Thanks for that!  A question for you: for my first chicken, should I brine it or is that too complicated, do you think? Any suggestions for a proper rub for the n00b to work with?

    Thanks in advance!

       Just don't give up if the first few times are less than you wanted.Practice is the answer, and doing smaller and less expensive meats will give you a grand beginning to the World of Smoking.

       And be adventurous,smoke evberything you can,who knows,you might hit a Bonanza[​IMG]

    How ever you go remember to share the goods and get some Buddies in on the fun.[​IMG]

  5. Really I just put McCormicks sweet-n-smoky rub, let it get to that glazed look ( about 20-30 mins) and put it on.

    I think it took about 3 hours but it was slammin'. If you get the chance, get Jeff's rub and tinker with it, I did and

    it rocks.

    Let the smokin' begin...James
