My name is Jeremy. I've been alive 36 & 1/3 years & I'm from the hills of South Central PA. As far as what I use to cook now, I made a 3 pit grill out of cinder blocks. The middle part I use to burn my wood then shovel coals over to either/both sides & cook off them. I can also hang a dutch oven over the middle fire pit if I need to. I've been using it for ages. I also just scored a Char Griller Duo last weekend in great shape for $50. It doesn't have the side fire box but I was looking for a charcoal grill & couldn't pass it up for the price.
I really want to get started smoking more & also start curing more of my own meat as well. My current plan is to build a medium sized reverse flow smoker (large enough to handle smaller gatherings), a UDS (for single person use & times it just wouldn't make sense to fire up the reverse flow) & a medium sized smokehouse that can also be used for cold smoking.
I look forward to being a part of this forum & learning from the masters lol. I will contribute whatever I can but as of right now I am a noob when it comes to smoking meats perfectly. It seems like I came to the right place to change that though! :-)
Have a good one & I will see ya around the forums,
