Started 5 years ago with a Brinkmann vertical.(ECB) I burned thru the coal pan, and have stepped up to a Charbroil Deluxe offset .Used 4 times so far, and I'm very happy with it. Last use was a turkey on Thanksgiving 2010, Coming out of the shed on March 20th. 1st day of spring.. Gonna to do a couple corned beef briskets, viola PASTRAMI! Please remember, it is always 420, time to smoke!
