ECB MOD'S Please help

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was given a brand new ECB today and have no clue as to what mod's this thing needs. Have been searching here but can't seem to find them anywhere. Here is a pic of it

The white pieces are bits of the sticker should come off once I soak it.

P.S it is charcoal

Thanks for any help

I have the same one, and the only thing I really needed to do was replace the firebowl with a grill wok. Either that or drill a ton of holes in it to allow better air to the coals. Aside from that, it works pretty great keeping a pretty nice temp over all. Made some of the best ribs of my life in that one... Smoke on Man!

First thing you have to do for sure is get a reliable thermometer.

Here are the two I did for mine.

1. Charm glo grilling wok (drilling holes in the factory pan did nothing for me)

2. Fiberglass rope along the doors. As my doors leaked smoke and I would assume heat as well.

The one thing I did see as promising,was, the EGB felt liner in place of the rope. The rope works great but it is a tight fit to close the doors. So I may try that instead but for now, this works.

Thanks for the idea. I did notice today that the door leaked quite a bit. Today I have my hot plate in there I am holding steady around 190 :) looking like it can double as cold smoker

air flow

+1 on the air flow situation. Either get the wok, or drill a bunch of holes.
Mine also does much better with lump charcoal than briquettes. It doesn't ash over and smother itelf out nearly as bad.
