    Brinkman Smoke n grill problems

    maybe  three of four bolts with double nuts and the heads inwards to let the ECB rest on just before it would bind up?

    1st time smoker - temp problems with my Brinkman Smoke N Grill

    Hey TerryD! Looks like you are off to a good start, maybe a little too much smoke, it really should be little more than a wisp of smoke and looks like it is all escaping from around the lid. The pan looks solid. I recognize that ECB but I don't recall the name of it. Better than the standard...

    Twine or Trellis Clips...... GREAT IDEA .....

    Wondering how they worked on the cucs? I bought a bunch of these and have been using them for 3 years on my tomato plants and they have worked superb. I just added cucumbers this year and never considered that I needed to support them as well.  I have been growing containers and while I am...

    ECB's Bad Wrap !!!

    That's a pretty cool chimney starter. Might even be worthy of it's own thread! (Not too mention that franken-burner your running there... LOL. Not everyone is cut out to smoke with an ECB. If you can conquer an ECB you can operate any smoker known to man!

    What came first? Thin Blue Smoke or Baby Back Ribs?

    TBS is in the air.  We may never know the answer to this age old question, but for me today? The baby backs came first. Out of the fridge and waiting to be rubbed.  Half chimney of lump get's the fire to it.  The pan eagerly awaits the fire... It's minion forming an upside down smile...

    Started modding my ecb..

    pretty much everything I have read here is that the closeable vent is only to close the holes when not smoking/ cooking as this will cause creosote to build up and give your food an acrid taste. Always control temps via the intake and never the exhaust. Another concern is that the more air that...

    Started modding my ecb..

    Right on the money, I'd say! Since my ECB (Charcoal Brinkmann) is wide open from the bottom; some smoke escaped around the bottom, even before I sealed the lid. I think that will always be an issue to a point, unless you seal the bottom to only an air intake vent. I have seen this, by removing...

    too big is much better than too small, in this case. You want to seal up that gap around the lid so that you get a much more even flow of smoke. Mine still allows a tiny bit of smoke around it in a couple of places, because I didn't get it down tight enough in a couple places but 99 percent now...
