A couple weeks ago I picked up a new Brinkmann Smoke N Grill (ECB) on Craig's List for next to nothing. I figured it would work great for short Que's orhors d'oeuvres. When I seasoned it the thing did okay for a while but then pooped out. Briquettes were buried in ash. So I did some research here, incorporating ideas from various posts. The biggest addition was the base of the unit. I purchased a Brinkmann Lava Rock Pan that is for an electric Brinkmann Gourmet Smoker, Part # 450-7010-0

I borrowed the charcoal grate from the Weber Smokey Joe. I'll have to get a replacement for it. Never know when you might need both.. Here are some pics showing the rest of the mods. I plan to give it a test run this weekend. I have no doubt it will work. I just may have to make a few tweaks. I'll post back with the results. Cheers!!!
