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!
Just purchased the gas conversion for my ECB . Should be here Thursday in time to smoke this weekend!!
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.

Thanks Triple B-

I already have a decent remote thermometer. Looking forward to this weekend. Best part is the wife wants ribs for mothers day dinner. I'm going to be more that happy to oblige!
