    Hi All
    I'm Mike from Tennessee. A little background, I have done very little smoking in the past, built a smoker out of a 250 gallon oil drum and used it several times with what I thought was good results and one morning a gentleman knocked on my door and wanted to buy the cooker and he made me an offer I could not refuse. so I sold it ( wish I hadn't). So now that I'm getting real serious about this I'm going to build a brick pit in the backyard. But until that is done I will be using a small vertical smoker this weekend. I know I will have questions. Thanks in advance Mike

    Hia Mike! Welcome to SMF. Hmmm Cowgirl here my have a few tips on brick pits. Can't think of anyone else offhand who runs one, but I bet a few do! There are alot of different setups and such here, and some things remain constant whether ya run an ECB, or a brick pit. Airflow, temp regulation, and the Thin Blue are all common factors.

    You came to the right place to get goin' and keep smokin'!
