I've been getting lots of good info from this board, so I figured I'd check in and start asking my own questions. I'm Mike and I'm a WV Hillbilly transplant in Southern MD. I've been smoking for about 8 yrs now using an electric ECB, but graduated to the propane GOSM last month. So far, I'm happy with the results. I replaced the wood box with a 10 in iron skillet and it has worked out very well. I've smoked brisket on the ECB two times before, with mediocre results. Today, the third time was the charm. It turned out fantastic and I hope to have some qvue up soon. Looking forward to being an active member of the board. Mike C.
