I'm a 36 year old grillaholic from Nebraska and have been addicted to grilling meat for about 10 years...I started on a cheap gasser that I received as a gift and have since moved my way up to a Weber Genesis. About a year ago, I really started to get into smoking and was simply using my grill achieving pretty good results but not quite the smokyness I was hoping for.
About a month ago, my father-in-law gave me his old ECB when he purchased a second Weber Performer and Smokenator to go with it. The ECB was stock so of course the first thing I did was jump online and made the standard ECB mods to it. So far, in the last month, I've done wings a ton of times (they are awesome after smoking for a few hours and then finishing on a hot grill to crisp up the skin), a chuck and am smoking 5 lbs of pork tenderloin in a couple of days for Xmas.
I found this website this morning after looking for some tips on how to collect the drippings from the tenderloins for gravy and figured I should get in with my type of people!!! :) Hope everyone has a happy holiday season and MERRY SMOKING!!!
