    i saw in a post over the weekend a mention of the modified minion method.....so i got to thinking how i could apply it to my ecb gourmet.......can't find any expanded metal at home depot, lowes, or menards to make a basket with a space in it, so there is a break in the ring of charchol.........

    then this idea hit me...........so to speak, like a ton of bricks........BWHAHAHAHAHA

    [​IMG]

    fits perfect, to the middle of the pan, and if its not tall enuff, i will add a brick on top.........PLUS the added benifit of being a thermal mass, so heat recovery won't take as long..........

    Ahh yes, grasshoppah......but only 1 brick on edge will allow more charcoal for a longer burn....[​IMG]
