"ECB stands for El Cheapo Brinkman" LOL. OK. I was only recently made aware of this definition. I'm considering getting a Brinkmann Vertical charcoal/wood smoker (the one that looks like a Safe). Is this 'El Cheapo' good enough to get the job done right? I really don't like the 'bullet' style somkers. I prefer the design of this one mainly becuase of the big front door for easy access to the food/water/charcoal. What are your guys' opinions on the ECB Vertical charcoal smoker? It's probably tops on my choice list right now, so any feedback either way would be helpful & appreciated.
