Hi everyone my name is Efrain Sandoval and im from orange county,ca.I am 21 y.o. and i enjoy all sports specially surfing ,boxin,wrestling,mma and football. enjoy all types of food but mostly Mexican,traditional American and of course BBQ!!! I just bought a Brinkman smoke'n grill and will be testing it out this memorial day weekend, i plan on making some babybacks this and my dads gonna try some beef ribs. Now i've been doing my homework and found the smoke'n grill is not the best smoker, so i would like to know if anyones got any tips/photos on how to modify this model.I found a few websites that show/describe the mods but they are not that clear and some show the mods for the gourmet ecb model.Also is it to soon to make some pork butt or brisket cause i wanna try those out to but heard that takes some more experience specially with the ecb.Also some tips on what types of rubs i should use would help alot.well thats about it all i can say now is how excited i am to start making some bbq and thanks to anyone who takes the time to give me some help!
