I, like most of the brethren, have an ECB.
I bought mine because of the price, but after seeing the mods I would have to make to make it smokeworthy, stashed it on the side yard.
...and it sat for three years, looking on as a Double Barrel Smoker and a UDS took its place and got all the attention (which cost WAYYYY more than doing the mods for the ECB)...
Last week, as I waiting for my UDS to come to temp, I decided to give the "strainer" cold smoker from THIS thread
I was able to get it working! How? No torch, no tea light. I used a few briquettes!
I got a 3 hour burn out of my config.
Then the light bulb went off!
I grabbed the ECB and tried my experiment again. Voila!
So I have a use for a non-modded ECB, and in honor of returning it Cook's row, I have named it:
Robin. I am still learning how to paint......
