Hello all, from very southern lower Michigan

Hi everybody, I from southern Michigan ( about 1 mile from the Indiana state line ). After looking through some posts on this site I now know what a "UDS" and an "ECB" ( I have an ECB ) is. I consider myself to be a rookie at this. I tried a few things several years ago on my ECG and didn't have any real success, although everything I tried was at least edible (haha). I was going to build a UDS but after looking thru some of the posts on here I've decided to ressurrect my old ECB and do some of the mods from the ECB posts. I want to try something while I'm on Thanksgiving break but haven't decided for sure what to do yet. My son wants me do some ATB's which do sound really good but I still haven't decided for sure yet. Thanks for having such an interesting and fun website.

Welcome to the forums! You've found the best place I know for sharing ideas on smoking, grilling, curing, etc. There are lots of friendly and knowledgeable folks here who genuinely enjoy helping one another. Looking forward to your input, and just ask when you need anything...someone here will surely have the answer.
