    Hi all,

    Names Ryan. New to be board from MinneSnowta. Just starting out and came here for tips on starting out as I got a brinkmann EBC on clearance $30. I was trying to decide if I wanted to stick with charcoal or go to propane but after a couple sessions on the EBC I think I'm going to start saving for a WSM.

    I've also looked up doe mods to EBC added a thermometer and might add a charcoal grate if I can figure out mounting, but I don't wanna go all hole crazy.

    There's a few pics from this last weekend. Look forward to reading tips and tricks on here.

    Looks like you guys are getting hit today with some of the white stuff!

    I grew up in Sleepy Eye!

    I also started with a charcoal bullet smoker and then went to propane.  I love the temp control that gas will give you.

    I have also recently added an electric for lower temps and even better temp control.  

    I think that a bulk of my smokes will still be with the trusty gasser!
