Vertical smoker cookoff

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
This has been my day, experimenting with my new vertical smokers. I found a Dos Equis ECB on Craigslist for $30. It was new, assembled but never used. I read this forum, and did some mods (which will be a post later after I see how it works), it's basically a mini E-WSM. The other is a WSW 22.5 I found on Craigslist for $250. And it looks as good in person as it does in the pic. I've have stick burners and a 40in MES. Never had a vertical unit. So this is my first experiment with a vertical smoker or the minion method. Today's fare is spare ribs and chicken thighs. It's been fun so far, got about an hour till grub time.

Had some great que! It was hard to tell the difference between the meats from the two smokers. The best thighs I have cooked, if not my best ribs, very close. The mods I made to the ECB worked great. I had to tend to the ECB more than the WSM, which was no surprise, but nothing excessive. A couple times I had some 50 degree temp spikes. My biggest issue was dealing with 10 - 15mph winds.
