ECB W/Smokey Joe for fire pan

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

smoker.JPGsmoker2.JPGHey everyone, Im new to the sight and was wondering if anyone else has ever taken the bottom of a smokey joe and used it for the fire pan on a ecb. I've recently done this and am amazed at the temps that are possible. My problem is that its actually getting too hot (300 and higher) Any temp control advice out there for a beginner?

Thanks for the welcome. I havent taken any pics yet, but its the basic brinkmann with legs on outside and the business end of a weber smokey joe underneath. I has done a few butts perfectly with a stock ecb but it was so difficult to get up to temp and such a PITA to replenish coals that I made the changes. I am pining away for a WSM but Im still having a blast with my clunker ecb!

I too have used the "business end" of a smokey joe with the barrel of an ECB.  However, my "Smokey Joe" seems to be a bit larger than those you can get today.

I took the legs off of the ECB and set it down into the Weber base.  I had to use some stove rope gasket to seal up the bottom where the ECB sets into the Weber and I also moved the air intake holes to underneath the coal grate.  I do have great temp control now.  Almost like a mini drum smoker.
