I am from Cleveland, Ohio and very new to smoking. Just planning to buy ECB and learn the process first. (without forgetting the mods of course) Using this and guide: http://smokermods.blogspot.com/
Going to buy parts tomorrow morning and start smoking, but wont be able to complete mod for vents. (Where in the world do they sell grill vents? I was able to buy mine off ebay, but do they sell them in any stores?) Hoping to smoke 2 ribs for family using Jeff's naked rib rub. I am very happy I found this forum. Hoping to build my own smoker once I get enough money and experience. For now, its cheap and small smoker.
