    I am going to do two butts on Thursday. I have never done this. Is there any temp differences between upper and lower rack? I have not put thermometers in to check this but plan to. Anything else a noob should know for doing two at once? (it is for a potluck at work) I have done one just fine twice before so feel fine with that.

    Hi Cousin; LOL[​IMG]

    My advice is to put a probe in each bird, relax, and take the birds out as dictated by the internal temps of each bird.

    Good Luck

    Edit meant to say butt not bird, sorry

    All: Thanks! I will watch the upper rack and maybe swap them.

  6. Did you end up noticing a difference? The ECB owner's manual states there is little difference in temp between the two.

    I-N-I even though they lost. I just got a ECB for Christmas and fired it up for the first time today. Just a seasoning smoke. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Titan, I saw this one kind of late. For tips, look in the electric section, there is quite a bit of good info.
