Newbie from Missouri - Page 2

post #21 of 33
How far east of KC? I grew up in Blue Springs (so probably still west of you), and was just curious. Still have most of my family and friends in Blue Springs, Lee's Summit, Indpendence, and Grain Valley.

Welcome to the SMF!!!

Bah! I live in Grain Valley! Grew up in Blue Springs as well! Although, I like to think I live outside the burbs. icon_smile.gif

Where are you located now and why would you ever want to move from Eastern Jackson County? hahaha!

This is a picture of the fire pan from my ECB. The holes bring plenty of air flow and are more than big enough to let the ash escape. Works great to get more heat with less coal.

Is that an old water pan? My fire pan looks more similar to the one on this page:


And I'm pretty sure I'm going to add the grate to the fire pan and some dampers, as a lot of ECB users have done...so I've found out since joining this great forum!

I don't have the Brinkman Gourmet, just the plain ole' El cheapo. So my fire pan looks like a water pan. This damn ECB has produced some amazing Q. I also have the Brinkman SnP but unless I am smoke a loto f items I typically stick with using the ECB as it doesn't take much coal to get hot with the fire pan mod.

Ahhh, I'm with ya now! My bad, I forgot about the true ECB!!! My neighbor has one and loves it. I'll definitely have to recommend the holes in the bottom of the fire pan. Also have to recommend using something other than his deck to catch the ashes icon_eek.gif

Where do you go hunting at? All over? I used to pheasant hunt a lot, but only did water fowl a few times. Mostly more towards the middle of the state.

Thanks!...and thanks! Don't want to post any bike pics on the wrong forum, but check out more pics here:


It's what I love to do outside of smokin! Unfortunately they both depend on the weather!

Didn't really want to, and want to move back to be honest...I'm in NC now, moved out here for a promotion at work...As soon as I can get back I will. It feels like I'm still there quite a bit as I go back to see friends/family.
