    Hi, I am a novice smoker hoping to learn the tricks of the trade. I have an ECB and used if for the first time yesterday. The results were just okay, not great. I have signed up for the 5 day course. Its good to know that I can turn to people on this forum for expert advice. I purchased the ECB because 1. cheap (didnt want to invest too much in something I know next to nothing about) and 2.seemed easier than charcoal. Thanks to all for the advice that I know I will be getting/needing.

    Welcome to SMF blackandbluedog, I have an ECB also. Although it doesn't see much action since I bought my GOSM bigblock.

    What were you smokin that didn't turn out so hot?

    Signing up for the 5 day ecourse is a good move, it will answer alot of questions.

    Brian,

    I have mastered the ECB, no one else knows it better than myself [​IMG] ......... Just fly me over to Hawaii, and I will give you hands on, step by step, instructions. In advance, you can prep by filling the fridge with ribs, roast, butts, sausages, fish, plenty of spices, and a bunch of beer. I think I can get you up to a respectable level in about 3 weeks time. Let me know when you get me that ticket ........ just make it two tickets my wife would to come out as well.[​IMG]

    enough fantasy here .......... Welcome aboard and enjoy it here, we are glad you found us.

    After I found this forum the rest of it was down hill in a hurry.It sucks you in and soon your making a smoker then your buying a bigger smoker,It just doesnt get better that this place a lot of good people with great answers.

    Good luck and Good smoking

    Welcome Brian -

    You are already in a great place to learn some simple wonderful cooking techniques! I leaned alot about preparing food and inexpensively when I lived in Hawaii! To bad most of and Mom and Pop restaurants are gone they could make some great food out of almost nothing. Ah well I degress ...

    The ECB is a great little smoker don't let the price fool you! It's the Hibachi of the smoking world! Enjoy!
