    Picked up an ecb this aft. Kinda wanted a smoker we can take on road trips. This seams to fit the bill. Plans for tomorrow got changed so I'll get it seasoned and throw some ribs on it to see how it works. For $28, figured I couldn't go wrong.

    Nice!

    I have the same electric smoker on the right.

    Do you have trouble getting it to actually smoke?

    I tried smoking a chicken with it around 225 degrees and never got any smoke.

    I just use a small loaf pan, put in a couple dry chunks of wood and a couple lumps of RO. Put foil on top, poke a few holes in it and put it right on the elements. Works great.

    Thanks Rich. Plan on doing the mods in the morning.

    I already bookmarked that sight. Beat ya to it. Wally didn't have the gourmet. I don't plan on using this a whole lot. Mainly when we go my folks place or the in-laws. I think it work for what I want it for.

    Thanks for the info, I will try that next time I use it.

    Anyone know who actually makes the Royal Oak electric smoker? I can't find any info on it on the web.

    I bought the ECB at WalMart recently too, here are some pics in this thread of my mods. I get about 2.5-3 hrs of steady temps with it.

    Looks like you got the smoking mafia setup at your house, Mark! [​IMG][​IMG] Nice set of smokers you have. The little one will be perfect for what you're looking for especially for the price!

    I'm not sure, but I think they are made by Smokey Joe

    Funny you should mention that coyote. The wife and I were just talking the other day about maybe expanding it a little bit.

    Thanks Laurel, I think I'll like it.


    Steve, you're behind again!! When I brought it home, I checked to see what I needed for tools. Screw driver and pliers. I also grabbed the drill and bits. Had the holes drilled before it was put together. Um, just one problem though. I, a, drilled the wrong pan. Luckly I had an old pan the same size as the water pan, so problem solved!

    Well, you know, I'm not one for reading all the instructions. I saw 2 pans sittin there, at that time didn't know there was a diff. in the 2, and just started drilling away.

    Nice line-up, Mark! I hate to admit it, but, I agree with Steve....the gourmet is easier to use, and just as portable. I'm sure you'll do just fine with your ecb, though...[​IMG]

    Get that puppy broke in and show us some qview already!....lol

    L8r,

    Thanks Eric. You know, you don't have to agree with Steve. But, I know what you're both saying. For $28, and as little as this thing is going to get used, it will work. It's gettin seasoned right now, and I just cut out a shelf for the thermo's to sit on. Got the SnP going right now too. Trying some lava rocks instead of the water pan before I throw the ribs on this aft.
