Hello from NYC

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by qingonsi, May 5, 2009.

  1. Hey everyone. My name is Vinny and I'm from the forgotten boro of Staten Island, NY. I'm fairly new to the smokin' scene (dabbling in it for about a year), but I'm looking to start doing some serious smokin' soon.

    Right now I'm using my 22.5 Weber Kettle and a 3 Burner Weber Gas Grill to do most of my BBQ/Grilling. I'm looking to build a pit of sorts using some 8x8x16 cememt blocks I have (roughly 4 dozen) so I'll be asking advice on design and additional materials to use.

    I've done a little looking around and already have the feeling that this could become a serious addiction, very quickly.

    Welcome and enjoy the forum. If memory serves me correct, Cowgirl has a post on pit building with block.

    Hi Vinny, Welcome to the forum! I do have a cinderblock pit..it works great. I use mine for large cooks or roasting pigs. You might be talking about a permanent grill?

    Hey Vinnie - fellow New Yorker here (upstater). I also have dabbled, but want to get serious. Good luck with building your pit!!! Please keep us posted, I have a decent size yard, and have thought about a pit as well. But, having my Weber and Smoker already, my wife might give me a little trouble about building a pit :)

    Good luck

    Eric
