Stickin to the questions asked.... I run a little operation in Alb, NM. We have been open for about 3 months Albuquerque has been real nice to us. I probably have about 10 yrs. professional smoking under my belt. My first cooking job was cleaning out pits. Currently I use two Ole Hickory Pits model SSJ. Each pit has about 120 sq.ft. of cook space. I think this forum is wonderful and obviously there is a lot of passion for the pit.
