ecb TOO hot!

Discussion in 'Charcoal Smokers' started by tallsmokeman, Nov 28, 2013.

  1. Hi all.....I made all the usual mods to my charcoal smoke and grill....legs on the outside, drilled many holes in pan, put a vent on lid.....before I did this I couldn't get it up to temp.....now I have the opposite problem, its running way too hot! I'm using the minion method, could i be using too much coals?
    Thanks

    You have a water pan in there? I used to rely on the old ecb exclusively and found the water pan to be essential in that baby. sometimes with ice.
