Hey Anthony, welcome to this awesome site! Don't feel like you've handicapped yourself by starting with and ECB. You'll find a bazillion ECB users in here that turn out some outstanding Q. My best advice is do what I did - read as many posts on whatever you want to smoke as you can find in here. You can take it to the bank that if you want to do it, someone in here already has, and will be more than willing to share with you what it took to make it great! Then mix and match recipes and techniques till you find your own groove!
