"udder ting dat I likes bout my ECB-type smoker is dat da lid bes hinged."

That's a much better ECB than I ever had, quite frankly.

Axe-u-lee, its a U.S.Stove Company stainless steel smoker dat we got from Gander Mountain back in 1989. The water pan, which is the same size as da Brinkmann hangs from 2 stainless steel rods dat snap into the walls. When da cover is down, dare be jest enough space fur one of dem dial-type candy thermometers to go into one of dem holes and measure da temperature jest below the top cookin grate. It also gots a door to add more water and/or charcoal to da pans, which da original ECB didn’t have (but da post 85 or 84 made ones did.)

“but I can’t find cookin grates fur da Smoky Joe locally, me”

Ain't you got a Sears store down der, CJV?

Our closest Sears store be in Slidell, bout 46 or 45 miles from da house. Dare bes one in Metairie, bout 50 miles, dat I might check iffen I go to da gunshow in Kenner on da 15th. Dare may be a Sears store in Hammond iffen I members right but I don’t usually go dat way, me.

I would prefer to MIG or TIG weld over silver soldering or brazing (though cooking temps probably won't get that high to require that),

True, but I ain’t got a MIG or TIG welder but I do have a torch & lots of silver solder . . .

C.J.V. - most of da grates I found be jest a bit smaller den 13.75 inches, me
