This is my third year smoking on an ECB. Last two runs were with a water pan, this time I'm going for the quicker run without water. They have between great last times. I can't wait to try the ECB running hotter.
Happy Thanksgiving! I've got a 13 pounder brining in a cooler on the back porch. Gonna smoke it with apple wood chunks. The wife has her 20 pounder that she's putting in the oven. We're feeding 16 people tomorrow.
