This is my modified ECB.
I made the usual mods. Top vent, added vents and legs on charcoal pan and moved smoker legs to the outside.
My charcoal pan wasn't the most stable so I use a Smokey Joe bottom as a charcoal pan.
The Smokey Joe is higher than the modified ECB charcoal pan. I had to raise my ECB a couple of inches so the charcoal wasn't too close to the water pan. A friend of mine made the new legs.
The threaded rods made for an unstable pan
Vented charcoal pan
Smokey Joe vents and legs are better
New longer legs. Original in the front
Lit and loaded Minion method
I use a large pizza pan to catch ashes
