Newbie from Northern, VA

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

I love cooking and grilling but just got into the whole smoke scene... I love smoked fish so I started to look at various smokers, etc...

I was at the store the other day and saw the ECB, not knowing it is a little monster after some mods, and picked one up, cheap.

Yesterday, I read the manual and did the whole "seasoning" of the smoker thing...

I have been trolling these forums to learn all the tips and will definitely heed all the advice I can. I think the first thing I will try is a 3-4 lb chicken and some ribs. Eventually I want to smoke all sorts of fish, primarily salmon and mackerel.

Anyway, I'm glad I stumbled upon these forums!

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.

Welcome to SMF Rev. We are happy you stumbled in. The door is now locked. Getting out is not an option since, once you start your smoking journey, you will not see an end in site. Enjoy the trip.

First Smoked Chicken!

So here is my first attempt ever and I must say, I'll only grill when I don't have time! I used Hickory chips in the stock ECB.

I just got finished doing some mods and can't wait for this Sunday. I plan on doing the 3-2-1 ribs with Apple Chips!!!! So excited!
