    Hey all-

    New to the board, but I have been smoking for 3 or so years. More failures in the begining than I would like to admit, but I am improving. Just found this site and there is a boatload of awesome info!

    I have smoked with a charcoal ECB, now I have the Charbroil electric ECB. I have gone through 2 heating elements and thermostats on the electric model in less than 7 months. So, I think I am going to convert to propane via the Afterburner conversion for $50.00 I saw it on . Anyone have nay experiance with these?

    My problem is, I dont have the time to tend to the fire with family ETC. I do have a charcoal ECB that I still use when I have the time.

    Thanks !

    Great site!

    Welcome ATLSMOKER,you'll find this place very helpful.
    I know I have.
    The After Burner propane conversion kit you bought is A OK.
    My brother Squeezy {he also bought one for hie off-set horizontal] and I have both bought one and they work great.
    The flame control is very touchy though.But it's not all that bad to deal with.
    Getting a good remote thermometer is good too.
    Hope you like it here.
