I got my smoker in from mail order yesterday and to my surprise its NOT an ECB but a Brinkmann Cook N' Carry. This thing looks like an ECB that has been sawed off in the middle. There is no thermometer or door for access to water and charcoal, only a single grill, as you would expect from the size. How in heck can you smoke anything when you can't keep the temp up and monitored? I think I'd just as well stick with fish or poultry in a smoking pan in the kitchen, at least with that I can monitor and control the temp.
