Howdy all!

My name is Bow, (like Bow and Arrow, not the command).

I have been grilling for a long time, and when I got my Charbroil (3 burner/1 side, Natural Gas) when we lived in Houston, the first thing I did was a Pizza on it!

I have played with smoking on the grill almost as long as I have had it, but I'm willing tobet there has been more pizza and bread than meat!.

After we moved from Houston to Southern Maryland, the new house didn't have NG, so I figured out a round about way to convert it to Propane after Char Broil said they don't support that...(found the equivalent Grill model number in Propane and ordered a new valve set).

So now, my job stuck us in Yuma.... the new house has NG, I just need to get it plumbed out to the Patio...

However, this was also my 15 year mark with the company I work for, and they have the normal gift catalog of stuff I didn't want, nor did the wife, until I spotted the  Brinkman "ECB".

I have been using it for about 6 months, did 90% of the internet modifications when I put it together, and have had some pretty good success with chicken, Country Ribs, etc... but babysitting it is getting old...

I am looking at upgrading, and the standing joke in the house is "The Big Green Egg", which I can't justify the cost of.... however, I am looking at the Char-Griller Kamado Charcoal Grill as my next purchase..

This is a great forum, a have been lurking a few days and there is some great stuff.

Welcome from Canada, Bow.



Sounds like you are already comfortable with smoking. I have only been smoking for a year and I am looking forward to learning from your posts.

Hey Disco,

I've only been Smoking on a 'Smoker" for about 6 months, but longer on my Gas Grill... But I'm not sure I've done anything the Masters on this forum haven't done long ago!

I also have a Lodge Sportsman's Charcoal Grill that I bought to modify for doing Yakitori on. My wife is Japanese and it is fun to stick some chicken on a stick and do it up Japanese style. Built a 'Yakitori" attachment for this baby, since I have a welder and very few morals... ;)

Hey, if you have a Japanese influence that you can bring, you will be appreciated. It sounds to me like you like food. If I am right, your posts will be great.

Like Food?

Oh Hell yeah!

I do a lot of cooking at the house, as I enjoy cooking, but the wife doesn't have as much fun with it as I do.

about the only thing I don't cook is Beef, as she doesn't really like it, so hey, there are more proteins out there is Cook, BBQ, Smoke, etc!
